      Xabi Alonso (Liverpool -> Real Madrid -> Bayern)
      Aug 04, 2009 11:00:31 pm
      REDS AGREE XABI DEAL
      Liverpool Football Club this evening confirmed they had reached agreement for the sale of Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid, subject only to a medical.
      The terms of the deal will remain confidential and undisclosed.

      From the offal, hard to miss it.

      The Xabi Alonso transfer saga, for brave souls, was here.

      His player thread whilst with Liverpool is here.

      I'll go and lock the player thread.

      Bye then.

      Business wise Rafa has played a blinder 30m raising to a possible 34m for a player who when we bought him only cost us 10m. That is a 20m profit rising to 24m depending on his performances and Real tried to buy him for 25m but Rafa was having none of it and held out for the full price well done Rafa a cracking bit of business now we need to look forward and spend the cash on quality who can help us to number 19 exciting times ahead.

      From a business point of view it may have been a smart piece of work but from a footballing point of view who are we going to get to make us tick like Xabi did?

      All that money is no good if the right player isn't readily available.

      Personally i'm gutted he left but I don't begrudge him following his dream.

      At least he didn't go to City for a paycheck.....

      Yeah mate, I have faith in Rafa.

      If he thinks we need to strengthen he'll get the right man/men for the job.

      It may even be the season for Lucas to shine :)

      F***ing gutted...just woke up and saw the news.

      Oh well at least it's done and we can get on with it. Now we look forward to spending the cash. I'm sure we'll sign someone new in the next couple of days. Hopefully the signing brings a massive smile to our faces.  ;D

      All the best Xabi (not f**king Xavi  ??? as I was reading in the 100+page thread)....wish you personal success but never against us.

      Imagine growing up in Liverpool as a red fan all your life, but playing for Man City.  At 25 being asked to play for Real Madrid. Brilliant , very flattering move. Then three years on, Liverpool come in for you, the move of your dreams. Do you take it? of course you do. We may miss Xabi, we may not. That will depend on the astute work of Rafa with the transfer funds. All in all, Xabi brought me lots of great moments watching him play. Good luck to him with Real, as long as they don't beat us should we meet in the C.L.  Thanks for the memories Xabi. Great player, forthright honest man. Lets move on....

      Gutted, will b greatly missed. Will move back to his home country, etc. Can't really blame him. Its life.

      All the best Xabi. We must move on & hope we can get somebody as good as him for replacement.

      Adios Xabi.

      I wish him good luck but I'm not that sad to see him go to be honest, his desire and passion to play for us had gone and was angling for this move for a while and I don't know about others but I only want to see players playing for Liverpool if their heart and soul is in it.

      However, he was one of Rafa's best buys and will be a shame to not see him score from his own half for us next season :D

      Okay, he's gone. It's not over but life goes on.

      Thanks for your services Xabi. I know you still have alot to offer us but you won't be appreciated as much in Madrid as you were at Liverpool. You are one of my very much loved players and I'm really sad to see you leave the team I love but IMO, you had made up your mind long ago. Still, I rather have a player whose heart and mind isn't in the team he's playing for.

      Well, if we can get Aquilani and Silva, it wouldn't be such a bad thing.

      Im not going to send him my best. Because i want Madrid to fail miserably this season, and unfortunately being a madrid player you come under that bracket. Hope you at least get in the side, and the World Cup, as you deserve that for your performances. But at Madrid, couldn't give a f**k.

      Maybe we should have asked for 50 million pounds, ;D.
      After all, we're selling a player that got many players sent off against us.

      I'm gutted he's gone. Really thought he would end up staying, but he had his heart set on moving and it was only fair to let him go.

      Hopefully we can get a good replacement for him and win lots of trophies without so Xabi regrets leaving.

      Best of luck Xabi but i feel you made the wrong move.

      He will missed Anfiled,I'm sure of that, because Santiago Bernabeu is so bored

      Now it's time to turn the page and make a very good sign, like Aquilani, Silva o Villa

      Bye Xabi. As soon as I saw this in the General Football Forum I knew it was all over.

      Thanks for how you served the club and you'll be etched in our folklore as one of our best midfielders.

      Good luck to you there.

      Right, I am relieved that this has come to an end. But also gutted that one of our prized assets is leaving us. You wanted to leave and we'll respect that.

      Now announce Aquilani signing please.

      You will be missed.

      But when we play you in the CL this season, prepare for a spanking
