The midfielder is currently under contract until 2014, yet with the policy at Real Madrid now tying down any players with two years left on their deals, eyebrows have been raised over exactly where Alonso feels his future lies.
The player is as untouchable as you can get in a Mourinho side and both the powers that be and coaching team at the Spanish giants know exactly how important he is for the club and want to get him secured as soon as possible.
Alonso himself claimed that: “I’ve no idea what will happen” with regards to the extension which will not only panic Real fans but put other clubs on high alert.
Whilst Liverpool may be the most linked club to Alonso, you can bet there will be no shortage of takers for the player that AS polls claim 83 per cent of Real fans want to stay at the club. This is a similar poll to the one that claimed 85% of Barcelona fans wanted Iker Casillas as their number one, so it is best to take them with about as much seriousness as you take Chelsea giving long term managerial contracts!
