Interesting transfer news are out claiming that Manchester United are joining the race to sign Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso.
The Daily Star claims that the reigning Premier League champions are set to rival Chelsea in the race to sign former Liverpool star Xabi.
The 31 year old’s contract at current club Real Madrid is set to expire at the end of the season and a lack of speed being implemented over a new deal has seen interest rise.
It is said that Chelsea have been monitoring the Spanish international’s situation and former Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is keen to link up again with him at Stamford Bridge.
However according to reports in Spain the Blues will face competition for the 31-year-old’s signature from United, who have already opened up discussions with Alonso.
