Xabi Alonso on verge of Real Madrid exit

Xabi Alonso would appear to be the next star name ready to leave Real Madrid after it was reported that personal terms had been agreed with Bayern Munich.

The German champions are willing to offer £10million for a player that has been at the very pinnacle of the game for club and country for many years now.

Baffling decision

Despite his advancing years, Alonso still has much to offer and the decision by the Madrid hierarchy is almost as baffling as the one that allowed Angel Di Maria to decant to Manchester.

Indeed, as recently as this week Real were still using Alonso as one of the figureheads for promotion of the new "dragon" away kit.

Both Di Maria and Alonso were known to be favourites of their manager Carlo Ancelotti, so it's not too difficult to conclude that these transfers are at the behest of Florentino Perez, Real's erstwhile president.

After a period of great success and one which saw them finally claim 'La Decima', losing both players could prove pivotal to Real's aspirations during the 2014/15 season.

International retirement

In the case of Alonso, his recent declaration of retirement from the Spanish national side was surely made with a view to extending his illustrious career at club level.

That he will replace the man who has seemingly replaced him is a strange book end to this particular transfer.
