Man Utd willing to top Xabi Real Madrid wages to bring him back to Northwest

Manchester United want to bring Real Madrid midfield ace Xabi Alonso back to England. The former Liverpool midfielder is under consideration at Old Trafford as a replacement for the retired Paul Scholes.

Radio Cadena Ser says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is making a move for Xabi and is setting up talks with the player's camp.

United are willing to better Xabi's current Real wages to tempt him back to the Northwest.

Any move to Old Trafford would prove difficult for the playmaker, who only this month has pledged his loyalty to Liverpool in an interview with the club's website.
