Madrid declare Alonso their number one target

Liverpool’s classy Spanish central midfielder Xabi Alonso has been targeted by Atletico Madrid as their number one player to purchase.

The reds signed the player from Real Sociedad for £10 million two years ago, but with the player’s contract due to expire in 30 months time, according to Spanish newspaper AS Diario, Xabi is the top target for the side from the Spanish capital.

Figures in the Spanish press note that Atletico value the player at around £15 million but Liverpool have so far refused to comment on the speculation.

The Spanish newspaper hints that Alonso himself may be interested in the return to Spain, with Athletico currently lying 4th in La Liga and aiming for Champions League Football.
