Alonso in the dark on contract

Xabi Alonso has admitted that he is currently unsure of how talks over a new contract at Real Madrid are progressing.

The 31-year-old was reported in early November as already in ‘advanced talks’ with Madrid over extending his current deal, which expires in June 2014.

However, when asked for comment on those negotiations, the former Liverpool man was less-than-sure.

“Not even I know what is going to happen,” the midfielder is quoted as having told reporters yesterday after playing for Euskadi, the Basque Country’s unofficial national team, in the friendly against Bolivia yesterday.

Alonso also refused to add his comment to the ongoing debate in Spain over Jose Mourinho’s decision in Week 17 to drop Iker Casillas to the bench.
