Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has refused to rule out a big-money move to Real Madrid.
The Spain international has been strongly linked with a £25million switch to the Bernabeu over the past 12 months.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez insists that he does not want to sell the former Real Sociedad player, but Real are understood to remain keen to recruit Alonso.
The player is refusing to rule out any scenario, telling Don Balon: “In respect to all this I have not closed any door and we will just have to wait and see what happens.
“It is always positive when various teams are said to want you because that is better than nobody being interested, but I cannot say much more.
“I know that I have to keep playing well and will be able to decide what happens next whenever it arises.
“I do not think a move to Real Madrid is impossible, but I would also have no regrets at all staying at Liverpool.”
Reports on Merseyside claim that Benitez is to hold clear-the-air talks with Alonso this week as the pair attempt to resolve their alleged problems.
“My relationship with Benitez is professional, just like he has with any other player. I believe that is how things will stay too,” Alonso added.
“I am happy in England and have adapted, but I do miss certain things from Spain. I cannot rule out a move or even staying in the Premier League.
“I am happy there (England) and although I was a bit home sick at the start, I am still there.
“This situation is normal for me because I know what is actually happening, away from what is being reported. For that reason I am perfectly calm.”
