Alonso keen on Madrid stay

Of course I'm going to be here next season," Alonso was quoted as saying by Marca following Madrid's eventful win over Malaga last night.

It's important to maintain good feelings, with an important match coming up next week.

We prepared for this match (against Malaga) with the same seriousness as always and with the desire to do well.

We're mentally prepared for the cup final, it will be a tough match. It's a clear objective, one we can achieve this year and nothing else can distract us. We all have to pull in the same direction.

– Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso
