Real Madrid line up Alonso replacement

Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that Real Madrid are considering a bid for Sevilla starlet Geoffrey Kondogbia.

It is no secret los Merengues are looking for a long-term replacement for Xabi Alonso, who is set to enter the final year of his deal at Santiago Bernabeu.

They have been linked with a number of players in the past few months, but Marca has suggested that Sevilla’s Geoffrey Kondogbia has been elected as the most suitable successor to the Spain international.

The Frenchman has largely impressed in a holding midfielder role since joining the club from Nantes, and he has seen his name linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs.

Due to the difficult financial situation, Sevilla may have no choice but to cash in on their star player in the summer, with Real ready to pounce.

Kondogbia, 20, has featured in 25 La Liga matches this term and scored the only goal of the campaign in a 3-0 home win over Granada.

Well, there’s also Veratti as a possible replacement for Xabi Alonso. Let’s see, there are two different players that Madrid club think can be the next Xabi – Veratti and Kondogbia. Veratti is more of a game creator, just like the Spanish and for both this role is actually their biggest strength. They both make amazing passes and see everything. At this aspect Veratti’s a better choice. Geoffrey Kondogbia, on the other hand, is stronger and gives more chance at free kicks and corners. He also seems to be better defensively. Well, to me, the French is more of a… Read more »

Real Madrid should just use their reserve players but if there going to buy a new center mid they should go for de rossi….he can defend create plays and score thats what they need from a midfielder. They have to many offensive players and need to concentrate on defense. So my top 3 players that madrid should go for are de rossi, lampard(won’t sign again with chelsea), and capoue

De Rossi’s amazing but I’m almost sure he won’t leave Roma. There’s been a couple of big clubs that tried to buy him and all of them failed. Of course he might change his mind…

Lampard wouldn’t be a good choice, he’s already 34 so they should look for younger guys.

A agree with you on Capoue but it seems he’s already in talks with PSG and about to sign a deal with them.
