After a brief spell in Argentina for Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata (he would also represent the side towards the end of his career, from 2007 to 2009), Alonso moved to Spain, where he played with five teams in as many years: Valencia CF, Atlético de Madrid (where he scored 22 goals in 2001–02's second division, helping the Colchoneros return to La Liga, and forming an efficient offensive partnership with countryman Fernando Correa, who added 13), Racing de Santander, Málaga CF and Real Murcia, where he did not have a good scoring record overall. In between his fourth and fifth club, he played one year in Mexico, with UNAM Pumas.
In 2006, 31-year-old Alonso returned to his country, joining hometown giants Club Nacional de Football. However, shortly after, he moved abroad again, signing with Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua FC; after two slow seasons with Gimnasia, the veteran switched to Club Atlético Peñarol.
