In this sense, the Anfield institution would have already started to evaluate the costs of the operation, and the news could be really positive for Liverpool according to the numbers delivered by the football site Transfermarkt about the salaries perceived by both managers on these days.

Following these sources, signing Xabi Alonso could be quite easy for Liverpool, regarding that the Spanish coach doesn’t have a strong release clause in his contract, and everyone in the club would be optimistic of being able to take the manager to Anfield for a not really high amount of money in the summer.
