Will Real Madrid have to change system with Khedira out? 0

Posted on November 17, 2013 by admin

You would think a team club like Real Madrid, with a stellar squad assembled from the world’s best players, would be able to cope with the loss of a player. Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, who is unique, Madrid should have plenty of options, but there is serious concern among Madrid fans and pundits in Spain that the loss of Sami Khedira could be a real problem.

The German midfielder, who damaged his cruciate ligament in the friendly against Italy on Friday, is thought to be the only player of his kind in the team. There are others who play in the same position, like Alonso, Modric and the new signings Casemiro and Illarramendi, but they are all different.

It is always a danger during the international break, and it has happened again to Real Madrid. A number of players last season came down with the so-called FIFA virus, including Marcelo and Coentrao at the same time, and it struck again last night.

This time it was the Germany midfielder Sami Khedira who was injured, and it was a bad one. The powerful midfielder lasted just over an hour against Italy in his countries 1-1 draw, and today it has been revealed that he has torn a cruciate ligament in his knee, meaning that Real Madrid will have to do without him for around six months.

You can tell just how important Xabi Alonso is to Real Madrid, at least in the eyes of the coach Carlo Ancelotti. Despite only playing around 10 minutes of competitive football since being sidelined with injury last season, at the end of Wednesday’s game against Sevilla, the midfielder will be thrown right in from the start of tomorrow’s game away to Rayo Vallecano.

Ancelotti said, “Xabi will start. I don’t know whether he will play the whole 90 minutes, but he will start.”

Real Madrid have transfer agreement with Dortmund star Gundogan 0

Real Madrid are poised to dash the hopes of some of the Premier League big boys, including Manchester United and Arsenal. Those two English clubs were thought to be the main contenders to complete the signing of the Germany international Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund, but it looks like they are going to miss out.

According to The Express, the 22-year old is heading to the Bernabeu, as Real Madrid have prepared an offer of around £25 million. The report also claims that there is already an agreement in principle for the transfer. Gundogan has apparently turned down the offer of a new contract from his Bundesliga club to extend his stay past the current deal which runs out in 2015.

Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, has got his man again. After surprising the football world by getting Isco to change his mind and choose Madrid over Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City, with a little help from Zinedine Zidane, Perez has broken down the stubborn resistance of Real Sociedad and the president Jokim Aperribay and sealed the deal for the defensive midfield star Asier Illarramendi.

The exact details of the agreement have not been revealed, but it is clear that Madrid will pay the full amount of the 23-year old Spanish international’s release clause. That amounts to 38 million euros including the Spanish version of VAT, and he will be given a five year contract at the Bernabeu.

Will Ancelotti wait for Kondogbia to decide on Real Madrid transfer? 0

One of the priorities for the new Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is to find a replacement for Michael Essien, who has returned to his parent club Chelsea with Jose Mourinho. With Xabi Alonso now 31-years old and starting to pick up injuries, Madrid need a long term replacement for the deep lying playmaker role, and the young Sevilla star Geoffrey Kondogbia is reportedly near the top of the list.

Alonso hints at Real Madrid exit with Liverpool waiting 0

The Spanish international midfielder Xabi Alonso has a contract with Real Madrid until next summer, but it is far from certain whether he will complete it. The 31-year old may be waiting to see what happens at the club in the summer, which itself could depend on the outcome of the remaining games this season.

Alonso spent five seasons in the English Premier League with Liverpool and it has been suggested that he could return there to finish his career. He was, apparently, happy at the club and only left after his relationship with Rafa Benitez, who was the manager at the time, deteriorated following his decision to miss a game to attend the birth of his first child. There are also reports that Benitez could be re-appointed as Liverpool manager and that may also have some bearing on Alonso’s decision.

Real Madrid want Kondogbia to replace Alonso!! 0

Since he joined Real Madrid from Liverpool in 2009, the Spanish international midfielder Xabi Alonso has been a mainstay at the heart of Madrid’s midfield. He has a fantastic attitude and work rate, along with the ability to make deadly accurate passes anywhere on the pitch as well as controlling the game from his deep lying position. At 31-years old, Alonso has a good few years left in him, but Real Madrid are already on the lookout for a player that might be able to fill his boots.

Jose Mourinho and his Real Madrid players are not expecting any miracles in La Liga. With 15 league games left, Barcelona are 16 points ahead and so Madrid have given up on retaining the title. All of their effort will now be concentrated on the Champions league and the Copa Del Rey.

With the visit of Manchester United to the Bernabeu on Wednesday firmly in mind, Mourinho has not included Xabi Alonso, Varane, Marcelo and Di Maria in the squad. These players are not really injured but have small niggles that Mourinho does not want to risk aggravating.

Modric WILL settle at Real Madrid in time says Alonso 0

Posted on January 09, 2013 by admin

Real Madrid chased Luka Modric from Tottenham for a long time before finally getting their man this summer. He was not cheap, costing around £33 million, but was expected to be an instant success and help Madrid to retain the Spanish league title. Well it hasn’t worked out so far, but his team mate, Xabi Alonso, has backed him to come good as long as he is given a little more time to settle in at the club.

“I don’t think it’s pressure. He plays in a position where we have several players and he’s adapting to a new club and a new league. It took me a while to adapt on my return to La Liga.
