Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti admits they're waiting for a response from Xabi Alonso over their new contract offer.

Xabi's current deal expires in June.

"Alonso's renewal is not a priority. The priority is to keep playing well and winning until Christmas. His renewal is important for everyone. We are waiting for his decision. He is thinking about what to do and is relaxed about it. He will decide very soon. They are talking about it and it is not a priority. Keeping playing well and winning is the priority though," said Ancelotti.
