Madrid:

Midfielder Xabi Alonso has completed his transfer to big-spending Real Madrid from Liverpool.

Alonso passed his routine medical on Wednesday to become Madrid's eighth signing in a euro254 million ($365 million) spending spree since Florentino Perez returned to the club presidency in June.

Liverpool will receive a reported fee of euro30 million ($43 million) for the 27-year-old Spain international.

Madrid hopes Alonso's organisational skills will help balance an offensive line-up which includes newcomers Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema.
