Juventus are said to be considering a move for Real Madrid star Xabi Alonso, which could spark a transfer merry-go-round between a number of top European clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola has claimed that the Serie A champs are keeping a close eye on the Spanish international, as Andrea Pirlo looks increasingly likely to leave at the culmination of the current season when his contract expires.
Of course Pirlo is himself a target for Real Madrid, so the sides may end up trading players.
However if Alonso was to leave the Bernabeu it would undoubtedly lead them to seek a high-profile replacement, with Chelsea's Ramires said to be on their radar.
Any arriving midfielder may also pose a question on Sami Khedira's future, as the German is said to already be disgruntled at the competition for place in the Spanish capital. Manchester United and Chelsea are both keen on Khedira, and Madrid could offload him to raise funds for other targets.
Despite the fact that Alonso has made it clear that he sees his future- for the time being anyway- at Los Blancos, he well opt to offer himself one last challenge in an already glittering career.
To top it all off Juve will probably have to ironically fend off competition from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United if they want to get the Spain midfielder.
Though where he will be plying his trade remains uncertain, it's a pretty safe bet that any move will put into motion a chain of events that could see a number of players moving clubs.
