Juventus reportedly bids $33M for Liverpool's Alonso

Juve had seemed almost certain to sign the Spaniard a couple of weeks ago, until the move hit a snag over both the transfer fee and due to Alonso getting cold feet.
If the new improved bid is accepted, it would be the second huge fee that Juve has paid Liverpool for a player, following its $20.6 million purchase of Momo Sissoko in January of this year.
