Real Madrid Sporting Director Unsure Regarding Xabi Alonso, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Alvaro Negredo

The club’s sporting director, Miguel Pardeza, has given a quick run-down of their current status in the transfer market. As Real Madrid prepare to head off to Dublin for their first pre-season tour.

The chase to sign Xabi Alonso has been the hot talking point over the past few weeks. Reports from England informed that the Reds have already started looking for a replacement (Alberto Aquilani) and Liverpool Manager Rafa Benitez has requested a written transfer request, the ‘White House’ hierarchy still not confident of achieving their goal.

“Xabi Alonso would do very well at Real Madrid,” Pardeza told Cadena SER programme ‘El Larguero’.

“There is no doubt that he is a great player, but at the moment, it does not seem that our efforts will come to fruition, although neither myself nor the club are losing hope.”

Then regarding about Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who has been left out of the convoy to travel to the Republic of Ireland.

“His position is where we have strengthened the most. We have advised him to look for a solution and the player is aware of that,” Pardeza explained. “As such, he decided to stay in Madrid to think of what to do.

“We will try to get as much money from his sale as possible, but we will see what the market has to offer.”

Finally, Pardeza informed that he is still unsure what will happen to Alvaro Negredo, even though he confirmed that the club had received plenty of tempting offers for his services.

He said, “There have been a number of exciting offers for Negredo. He has a lot of competition in his position and it is an issue that must be studied closely.

“However, that does not mean that he will be leaving. It will depend a lot on other circumstances that will take place in the coming days.”
