Chelsea and Liverpool suffered a blow to any plans they harboured of signing Xabi Alonso in January, after it was revealed that the midfielder wants to extend his Real Madrid contract. reports that the Spain international is keen to negotiate an extension on his current deal at the Bernabeu now that he has fully recovered from the injury that has thus far stopped him from playing this year.

Such news will not be welcomed at Stamford Bridge, where it was believed that Jose Mourinho was mulling over the prospect of adding Alonso to his squad. Likewise with former-club Liverpool, where the 32-year-old has been linked with a return to Anfield.

Alonso, who made his come-back from a five-month layoff during Madrid's 7-3 demolition of Sevilla last night, stated that he is now in a position to talk with Madrid over his future.

"Now is the moment to begin to talk to the club about my future," the Spaniard told Spanish newspapers.

"While I was not fit I did not feel up to talking. I have good communication with the club."
Alonso's current contract is up at the end of this season, and so if Carlo Ancelotti wishes to ensure that the playmaker doesn't leave Spain, he will have to tie up a new deal relatively soon.
