Xabi Alonso: The midfielder's father says he will assess his options before

The Spanish international has one year remaining on his current deal at the Bernabeau and despite reportedly being offered a new deal, Alonso is yet to commit himself to an extension.

The 31-year old has been in fine form for Madrid this season but his dad, Periko Alonso, insists that his son should take his time over deciding on a new deal.

"What he wants to do is to wait a bit to see what happens and how things go, and then when the time is right, he'll make the appropriate decision," Alonso senior told Marca.

"It's as simple as that - there's nothing else to it.

Alonso has been linked with a return to Real Sociedad, where he started his career, but his father says a that move there is unlikely.

"Going home is difficult and anyway, Sociedad are pretty well stocked right now."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
