Brilliant! Xabi Alonso shaves and turns into Real Madrid teammate Asier Illaramendi [Graphic]
- November 8, 2013
Now aged 31, Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso is still pulling the strings despite entering the final years of his career.
The midfield maestro is known for his beard but in this graphic we see exactly what he would look like without it.
Asier Illaramendi or Illara was signed in the summer from Real Sociedad for £30m.
He was bought essentially as Xabi Alonso’s replacement. Once he grows a beard and improves his game a little he will in fact be Xabi Alonso.
The similarities are uncanny.
