Alonso ‘rejects’ Juventus option

Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso has reportedly told Juventus that he has no interest in a summer move to Turin.

The playmaker could potentially be available on a Bosman free transfer and he’s been paired with the Old Lady.

According to Marca, Juventus officials have been told by the 31-year-old’s agent that he doesn’t want a move to Italy.

The Bianconeri believe that the former Liverpool man, today linked with a possible January move to Chelsea, wants a switch back to England.

The international is on the verge of returning to first team action after spending the last five months out with injury.

Although Alonso is set to discuss a new contract at Real, Marca believe he won’t extend and will quit the club when his present agreement expires in June.

Andrea Pirlo’s contract with Juventus is also set to come to an end next summer.
