Real Madrid offer Xabi, Drenthe for Juventus defender Chiellini

Real Madrid are moving for Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Sky Sport Italia says Real will offer both Xabi Alonso and Royston Drenthe in exchange for Chiellini.

However, the Italian media believe Juventus will reject the offer in order to build the new-look side around Chiellini.

With the departure of Fabio Cannavaro and Fabio Grosso, Chiellini is their most reliable man at the back.
