Real Madrid plotting move for ‘next Xabi Alonso’


Real Madrid are plotting a move for Liverpool teen sensation Pedro Chirivella.

The 17-year-old has been labelled as the ‘new Xabi Alonso’ and has impressed since moving to Anfield from Valencia last summer.

Chirivella has yet to play a first-team game for the Reds but boss Brendan Rodgers often gets him training with the Anfield stars. Both Rodgers and captain Steven Gerrard are bigfans.

The teenager, who has captained the Spain Under-17 team, turns out for Liverpool’s U21 side.

Liverpool describe the hot prospect as “a fine passer, who is constantly picking up the pieces in midfield and keeping the young Reds ticking over”.

They add: “Much of the play goes through Chirivella – and he’s a player who the Academy coaches are looking forward to watching develop at the club.”
