Report: Xabi Alonso to MLS?

MOST COMMENTED

Spanish TV program Punto Pelota reported earlier this week that Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso is contemplating a move to Major League Soccer when his contract expires in 2014. Reporter Pipi Estrada claimed that, "Xabi will not go to the Premier League, to the Serie A or to the French league. Instead, his future is in the United States and he'll play for the LA Galaxy or the New York Red Bulls."

Estrada added that if the move happens, it would be on a two-year contract, only. "If it comes to pass, he would be in the United States until he's 34," the reporter said. "And if he feels fit, he could play a final season with Real Sociedad, the club that's dearest to him."

The report prompted MLSsoccer.com, which picked up the story, to reach out to both MLS clubs, with the Galaxy refuting the report and the Red Bulls declining to comment. Alonso, who turns 32 next month, has yet to make an appearance for Real so far this season, as he recovers from a hernia and a right foot fracture suffered in August.
