Xabi Alonso will snub the chance to rejoin Liverpool and Jose Mourinho is waiting to pounce.

Anfield fans were left devastated back in 2009 when Rafa Benitez sold Alonso to Real Madrid for £30m.However, the Spaniard is out of contract at the end of the season and the Reds were lining him up for a shock return.

Boss Brendan Rodgers had been given the go-ahead to move for Alonso despite the fact he’s now 31.

Liverpool’s owners – the Fenway Sports Group – have implemented a strategy to invest in youth but they were willing to waive their beliefs, like they did for Kolo Toure, to sign Alonso.

But the midfielder doesn’t want to return to Liverpool, according to reports.

Chelsea are ready to take full advantage by making a move to sign Alonso, who is renowned as one of the best passers in the world.Mourinho worked with the Spain star during his time at the Bernabeu and is confident he can tempt him to Stamford Bridge.
