Real Madrid reportedly offer Xabi Alonso two-year extension
Real Madrid and Xabi Alonso will reportedly meet next week to iron out the details on a two-year contract extension that will keep the Basque midfielder at the Santiago Bernabeu until June 2016.
According to Spanish radio station, Cadena SER’s ‘El Carrusel Deportivo’ programme, Real Madrid will offer two years, plus an addition year, while the Spanish international will earn €6 million per season, a €2 million bump from his current salary of €4 million per season.
Alonso was weighing his options over the past several months, but upon his return to the pitch, the 32-year-old has experiences nothing but praise and love from both the fans and manager, Carlo Ancelotti, which has effectively made up his mind to remain at the club as his decision was never about money, but his own personal reason.
Alonso is free to negotiate with any club, as he is in the final six months of his current contract, but hasn’t and has given Real Madrid priority, which they fully intend to use to tie down the “irreplaceable” playmaker.
Alonso has been previously linked with moves to Juventus, Liverpool and Chelsea.
