Xavi Alonso Linked With Move to Manchester United

Manchester United have been linked with a move for former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso. The Old Trafford side are desperate to find a player to replace Paul Scholes and see the Real Madrid star as the ideal man.

Spanish radio station Radio Cadena Ser, are today reporting that Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to increase the wages that Alonso receives at the Bernabeu in order to bring the 29 year-old to Manchester.

Alonso has 86 international caps to date, and started every single match of Spain’s successful World Cup campaign in South Africa last summer. He made 52 appearances for Real last season and is seen as one of their key men.

A move to Manchester United would be a bitter pill for Liverpool fans to swallow, but Ferguson has been told that he has the money to spend and if he is prepared to pay the asking price then he may well succeed in getting his man.
