Xabi Alonso: Has just 18 months left on his Real Madrid contract

The Spain international is under terms at the Bernabeu until the summer of 2014 but his hesitation in committing his future has led to speculation.

Liverpool are reported to want to re-sign Alonso some three-and-a-half years after selling him to Real in a £30million deal and it is not yet out of the question.

The 31-year-old is rumoured to only want a new rolling 12-month contract with Real but has been offered a two-year deal which has left him in a state of indecision.

"I've no idea what will happen," World Cup, Champions League, Primera Liga and European Championship winner Alonso told Spanish media.

"I have not decided on my future. I will only stay at Real Madrid if I can offer the same level on the pitch as I can now and we will see what happens in the next few months.

"There is always a chance I could go back to the Premier League as I always enjoyed good times there."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
