Bolton confident signing Real Madrid pair Rodrigo, Alonso

Bolton Wanderers remain on track to land Real Madrid pair Rodrigo Moreno and Marcos Alonso.

The Bolton News says the highly-rated Spanish pair are expected to finalise a season-long loan move to the Reebok, after full back Alonso turned down the chance of joining Portuguese giants Benfica as part of Real's big-money deal for Argentine ace Angel Di Maria.

Brazil-born striker Moreno boasts an impressive scoring record at junior level for adopted country Spain, but unlike Alonso, has not yet made the leap to senior football at the Bernabeu.

Both teenagers were regulars for Real's second team, Castilla, last season, and it has been reported that Real want £5million to make the deal permanent, including a buy-back clause.
