Xabi wants Real switch.

Monday, July 20, 2009

Xabi Alonso has shocked Liverpool fans and staff by admitting that he is delighted that Real Madrid want to sign him. The Liverpool midfielder has been subject to speculation this summer, with Real Madrid showing interest in the Spanish star, along with Man City and even Arsenal.

''It is always a great feeling when Madrid want you, especially considering the phase of the career I am in now''.

Big spending Real Madrid, who have already signed four big names this summer, Kaka, Benzema, Ronaldo, Albiol, have named Alonso as their next target this summer, but it is believed the Galacticos would have to splash out £35 Million for the Reds midfielder. With Alonso now willing to move to the Spanish giants, they must now persuade Rafa Benitez to let go of the Spanish star. Alonso is going to do them a favour on this, stating that he wants to have a discussion over his future with Benitez over the coming days.

"I will talk to him, sure, but the first thing to do when I arrive is to greet him''.

In my opinion, Alonso is a great player who would definitely add even more strength to the already impressive Real Madrid squad, who take on Shamrock Rover in Tallaght tonight at 8.00 o' clock tonight.
