Juventus are in talks with Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso.

Tuttosport says with Xabi off contract in June, Juve already have a two-year deal drawn up for the midfielder to consider.

Real president Florentino Perez is aware of Juve's interest, but won't consider an early release from his contract for Xabi.

Instead, Juve have been told if they want the former Liverpool star in January, the Turin giants must cough up €6 million. A Bosman agreement is more likely for Juve GM Beppe Marotta.
