Real Madrid star Xabi Alonso has refused to rule out a return to Liverpool in the future.

Alonso left Anfield for Real in the summer of 2009 after a difficult last 12 months at the club with ex-Reds boss Rafa Benitez willing to sell him as he pursued Gareth Barry.

The 29-year-old is happy with life at Madrid, but he is open to the possibility of one day returning to Merseyside.

When asked if would ever consider returning to Liverpool, Alonso told Liverpool tv : "Why not?

"I think that in football so many things change, and why not? I have my red passion and if circumstances arrived then why not?

"At the moment I don't know what is going to happen, but it could be a possibility. Never say never."

Memories

Alonso, who spent five years at Liverpool, admitted it was a major wrench to leave Anfield and he revealed he still misses the club.

"It was difficult because Liverpool has been and always will be very special," added Alonso. "It is in my heart because I have lived very intense things there.

"I miss lots of things. I miss the lads, I miss the atmosphere at Melwood - it was a great place to work, and the scenario of Anfield is unbeatable.

"The special nights I have been privileged enough to live, those will be in my memory forever and they are difficult to compare anywhere in the world."
