Xabi Alonso is set to train with his new Real Madrid team-mates after easing through a club medical on Wednesday morning that saw him complete his move from Liverpool, according to a report.
The Spanish international midfielder has completed the transfer that he publicly stated he wanted, and has been hailed as the last piece in Los Merengues’ jigsaw.
After jetting into the Spanish capital, Alonso proceeded from Barajas airport to the Clinica de La Moraleja to undergo a series of medical exams to prove his fitness, Marca state.
Having sailed through the tests without any problems, Madrid’s latest summer recruit was preparing to travel out to the Valdebebas training complex.
Madrid chief doctor Carlos Diez told the club’s television channel: “We carried out all the usual tests, concentrating on the musculoskeletal system because he has already had an ankle operation and we are satisfied because there are no signs anything is wrong.
“He is fit to join the squad.”
