Real Madrid head coach Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that he would like to bring Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso to the Bernabeu.

The 27-year-old Spain international is a rumoured £30m target for Real, although Pellegrini has refused to talk too much about former Real Sociedad schemer Alonso.

Pellegrini told Sky Sports News: "All we know is that he is a very good player. We don't know what is happening with him.

"He is now a player with Liverpool, so we will see what will happen in the future.

"He is a very good player, but I cannot speak about players who are not at Real Madrid now."
