Former Liverpool star, and current Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso sees his contract run out in the summer, meaning he can talk to overseas clubs from January. He’s a player I’d certainly welcome at Old Trafford despite his Merseyside links.
The 32-year old is currently in his fifth season at Madrid, but hasn’t featured as much as he’d have wanted to this year due to injury. Reports suggest that all the Premier League big guns are sniffing around the Spaniard, and he’d certainly bring a lot to Manchester United.
Real Madrid do want to renew his contract though, so its all down to the player as to whether he’s happy in the Spanish capital. Although they’ve said they don’t want to put pressure on Alonso, and they’ll give him time to make his decision.
ermmm he hasn’t feature much because he broke his foot…. excellent journalism there.
