Chelsea, Juventus battling for Real Madrid contract rebel Xabi

Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso is eyeing a return to England.

The Daily Mail says Alonso, who perforated an eardrum during yesterday's 3-2 win over Valencia, has interest from Chelsea and Juventus notably.

Manchester United and Manchester City have been sounded out but have reservations about his age with the Basque-born midfielder turning 33 next November.

He is reputedly seeking around £8million in signing-on fees and subsequently is expected to see out his contract at Madrid rather than move in January.
