Real Madrid Agrees Terms With Liverpool Defender Arbeloa


Sensational transfer news are out and it has been reported that Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa is expected to join Real Madrid and it is believed that the defender will make a £4.5million switch to the Bernabeu next week.

But his fellow Liverpool teammate and Spanish international midfielder Xabi Alonso looks to have missed out on the chance of a move to Real Madrid.

Arbeloa,now aged 26, was signed from Deportivo La Coruna for £2.6m two years ago. However it is believed that Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez originally wanted £8.5m for the full-back, who made 43 appearances last season but Real Madrid responded with a bid of £2.5m but now the clubs appear to have reached a compromise figure of £4.5m.

Arbeloa’s agent Manuel Garcia Quilon said that discussions with Real are not over and he expect a solution early next week and Real sporting director Jorge Valdano reportedly said that Arbeloa is a basic part of Real Madrid’s plans.

Real have been looking to strengthen their defence and midfield after splashing out nearly £180m on forwards Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema.
