Returning Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has reaffirmed his interest in Xabi Alonso by heaping praise on the Spanish midfielder.

The playmaker is one of many names linked with a big-money move to the Bernabeu this Summer as Perez prepares to make the club a threat at home and on the continent once again.

Perez has hinted that he will make an approach to Rafael Benitez for the midfield maestro sooner rather than later.

“As a fan, I would say that Xabi is a great player. I think he is the best passer of the ball in Europe,” he told the RTE.

“I would be happy [to have him], but I cannot talk about the player without having spoken first to Rafa Benitez, as he is the one who needs to know that we are interested in his player.”
