Xabi Alonso has completed his transfer from Real Madrid to Bayern Munich.

The 32-year-old spent five years at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu following a £30m switch from Liverpool in 2009, during which time he won two Copa del Reys, La Liga and the Champions League.

Alonso has also recently retired from international football with Spain having played a key role in the most successful period in the nation’s history.

Since making his debut for the country in 2003 the midfielder earned 116 caps for the Spaniards and won the 2010 World Cup and successive European Championships.

Alonso is also a highly revered figure at Anfield for the five years he spent there, helping the Reds to win the FA Cup in 2006 and the Champions League the previous year in dramatic style, with the Spanish ace scoring in the final.

Bayern targeted the veteran following a long-term injury to Javi Martinez and the departure of Toni Kroos to Madrid.

Alonso becomes the Bundesliga champions’ sixth new signing of the summer along with other high profile figures such as Mehdi Benatia and Robert Lewandowski.
