Fernando Alonso's manager has admitted that the Spanish former double world champion wants to race for Ferrari one day.

"That Fernando has expressed some interest in racing for Ferrari is no secret," said Luis Garcia Abad, following reports in the Italian media that Alonso, 27, has inked a secret deal to switch to the Maranello based team in 2011.

Abad, however, told the news agency EFE that any suggestion of a done deal would be premature.

"2011 is still a long way away," he said. "It is too early to talk about that.

"Formula one is going through a time of great difficulty from an economic point of view, so it is difficult to think about the future."
