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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
