Alonso, predominately a left-back, spent a successful spell on loan at the Stadium of Light last season, making a total of 20 appearances and helping them avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The 23-year-old has also been linked with Premier League rivals West Ham and Swansea, and Sky sources understand he has told Fiorentina he wants to leave.

He only managed three appearances in Serie A after joining Fiorentina in May 2013 from Bolton but did play six more times in the Europa League.

He started his career in his home town with Real Madrid, playing regularly for reserve side Castilla, but he did make one senior appearance off the bench at the end of the 2009-10 season before leaving for Bolton.

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.
