Real Madrid's Xabi Alonso Open to Move to U.S. in Future

Star Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso spoke about the possibility of moving to the United States in the future, confirming his interest in one day taking his talents across the pond to MLS.

The 32-year-old Spaniard has found plenty of success with both Liverpool and the Spanish giants, but conceded that he may look for a new challenge when his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu runs out in 2016.

Alonso joined several other star European players, such as Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery and Paris Saint-Germain’s Zlatan Ibrahimovich, in expressing interest in finishing his career in the U.S.

“Moving to the USA? I don’t reject that in the future,” he told France Football. “We will see how I feel in two years’ time. I don’t discount anything—Europe, Real Sociedad or staying longer at Real Madrid if I notice that I still have the physical abilities.”

He also addressed his 2009 decision to leave Anfield, having captured a Champions League title as a member of the Reds.

“In 2009, I think I made the right decision,” the Spanish playmaker said of his move to his nation’s capital. “After five years at Liverpool, I needed a change.”

“Can you expect anything better than Real Madrid, the greatest and most demanding club? It was the right moment to seize the opportunity,” he said. “Everyday life in Madrid is tougher than in any other team. What the club demands is win, win and win again, and play well too.”

“Liverpool have five European trophies, but it is not the same. There the daily life is more relaxed and not so heavy. At Real, pressure and demand are constant,” he continued. “But I wanted to see if I could match such a challenge.”
