Xabi Alonso has reportedly told his agent he wants his future resolved by July 19, claims the Daily Mail. The Liverpool midfielder, who has been on international duty with Spain at the Confederations Cup in South Africa, met his representative Inaki Ibanez immediately after flying back to Madrid on Monday.
The 27 year old is said to be keen on a move to the Bernabeu and, after the meeting, told Spanish newspaper AS: "I don't know what will happen. The clubs now have to negotiate."
He has already moved on to San Sebastian to start vacations but is apparently due to join up with Liverpool on July 19 ahead of their Asia tour.
AS say Alonso is keen for a decision before then so that he can search for a new home in the Spanish capital.
