Real`s Alonso agrees contract extension: Reports
Madrid: Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso has agreed a two-year contract extension with Real Madrid, local media reported on Wednesday, without identifying their sources.

The 32-year-old`s current deal expires at the end of the season and the lack of an announcement of a new contract had prompted speculation Alonso might accept a lucrative offer from an English Premier League club.

He has agreed a two-year extension with an option for another year and will be paid a net salary of 6 million euros a season, Spanish media said.

Real were not immediately available to comment on the reports.

Alonso`s poise and passing ability have been crucial to the Madrid club`s success in recent years and Carlo Ancelotti`s side have looked vulnerable when he has missed games through injury.

He is in his fifth season at Real having joined from Liverpool in 2009.
