Xabi Alonso has decided not to extend contract at Real Madrid; Juventus and Liverpool alerted [Cadena Ser]
Real Madrid and Spain central midfielder Xabi Alonso is certainly one of the best passers in world football.
The former Liverpool star has struggled with injury in recent times and at age 32, his time at Real Madrid may be coming to an end.
According to Spanish newspaper Cadena Ser, Xabi Alonso has decided not to extend his contract at the Bernabeu.
