Serie A giants Juventus are weighing up a potential move for midfield maestro Xabi Alonso, reports

Alonso's contract with Real Madrid is up next June, and a new deal has to be agreed, with the 31-year-old said to be reluctant to put pen to paper.

Juventus are preparing for the retirement of the legendary Andrea Pirlo, and see Alonso as the ideal replacement to bolster their midfield if and when the Italian international hangs up his boots.

Alonso is currently out of action after sustaining an injury that is likely to rule him out until at least November. Given the fact that starting spots in the Madrid midfield are already fiercely competed for, Alonso could well struggle to force his way back into the side if they cope well in his absence.

Subsequently, media sources in Italy are stating that the World Cup winner will force a transfer away if he must, in order to guarantee himself first-team football in the run in to Spain's campaign at Brazil 2014.
