04:45 PM ET 07.12 | Real Madrid has signed promising midfielder Asier Illarramendi from Real Sociedad for a reported 33.6 million pounds. Sociedad fought hard to keep Illarramendi, but they ultimately lost out on the player they coveted as Real Madrid hopes he can be their long-term replacement for Xabi Alonso. Illarramendi has been playing for Spain Under-21 international squad. Sociedad president, Jokin Aperribay, admitted that the team did not want to sell Illarremendi, but the move, but Real Madrid's offer triggered Illarramendi's buyout clause.
