According to ESPN Real Madrid and Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso looks set to complete a move to Chelsea following concrete interest from London-based Chelsea. The Independent have reported that the former Liverpool star will be available for a cut price as sources close to the player stated that he’s “deeply unimpressed” with the current tension at Real.
There is also reported interest from Arsene Wenger in the 31-year-old with Alonso seeking a move out of Madrid preferably London. Alternatively Alonso wants to move to SW6 considering that Jose looks set to return and he has a brilliant relationship with the Portuguese.
Another reason that Alonso looks set to snub arsenal is that the CDM role is one that Chelsea desperately want to strengthen so his role at the club would be guaranteed.
