Liverpool's offer to Xabi Alonso tugs at the heartstrings,

promising a three-year embrace of Anfield love.  

As anticipation grows, Alonso's return appears near. However,  

in order to honor Klopp's legacy, the transition is being held off until the right time.

While dreams take flight, reality cautions. Leverkusen tightens its grasp on its

management, although there is optimism for a simpler journey in 2025.

Liverpool's arms remain open, waiting to welcome Alonso home.
