Xabi Alonso signs Real Madrid deal

Xabi Alonso has signed a new two-year contract extension with Real Madrid, the player and club have both confirmed.

Alonso has been linked with a return to Liverpool but insists his future is at Real Madrid
Alonso signed for Real Madrid from Liverpool in 2009.

Train: Xabi deal a gift for Real
• Rigg: Three points for Madrid

The 32 year old midfielder’s current deal at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu was due to end in June, and in recent months it had been rumoured to be considering offers from a host of Europe’s top clubs including Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

The situation had been an increasing concern for Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti, who had regularly encouraged the club and the player to agree terms, and Bernabeu fans, who have cheered the Basque player and chanted "Alonso Stay" during recent games.

It appeared such worries would soon be over when reports circulated widely that the player and his agent Inaki Ibanez were at the Bernabeu finalising the agreement with Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Alonso himself announced he was staying via twitter -- saying “This will continue to be my home for two more years. A pleasure to let you know. Very, very happy ¡¡Hala Madrid!!”.

Madrid soon released  a club statement with more details of the agreement that ties him to the Liga giants for the next two years

“Real Madrid communicates the extension of the contract linking Xabi Alonso with the club for two more seasons, until June 30, 2016,” the statement said. “The player will talk in front of the media next Friday Jan. 10 at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu's press room at 13.30.”

Alonso joined Madrid in summer 2009 for Liverpool for 30 million euros, and has since played 204 games for the club, winning one La Liga title, one Copa del Rey and one Spanish Supercup.

The contract is reported to be worth six million euros a year after tax, and includes a possibility to extend for another 12 months should both parties wish to do so.

The Spain international is currently hampered by an ear problem which will see him sit out Thursday’s Copa del Rey last 16 first leg at home to Osasuna.
