Xabi Alonso has no clause that will allow him to join Liverpool in future.
Former Liverpool midfielder and current Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso has been linked with a move to Anfield recently.
He took charge of the German club back in October and his team are currently at the top of the Bundesliga table after 11 games.
Alonso has been linked with bigger gigs including his former clubs, Liverpool and Rea Madrid.
The Spaniard has signed a new contract until 2026 in the summer but there have been reports of a clause that will allow him to join his former clubs.
But Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro rubbishes any such clauses in the manager’s contract.
He said: ‘No, but you don’t need a clause. We have a very, very good relationship with Xabi and he knows we are a serious club. And at the end of the day, we’re not going to force someone to stay if he doesn’t want to stay.
‘There is nothing on paper [allowing Alonso to leave for a former club]. But sometimes agreements that are not on paper are agreements as well.
‘We know if he needs to do a move in the future we will be able to talk with each other. And I hope we will not need to do this because he will stay and be happy at Leverkusen.’
