Thomas Tuchel leaves at the end of the season...Bayern enters the battle for Xabi Alonso Transfers

Jurgen Klopp, who has won numerous titles at Anfield since 2015, has announced that he will step down from his position at the helm at the end of the season.

While various candidates have been floated to replace him, including Robert De Zerbi, Xabi Alonso, who leads Bayer Leverkusen, is the first choice.

The Spanish coach, who played for Liverpool during his playing days and knows the atmosphere of the Premier League, is also rumored to be prioritizing his time in charge at Anfield, while he has also expressed interest in coaching positions at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid has extended the contract of coach Carlo Ancelotti and is no longer returning to his home country.

And Thomas Tuchel, the coach of the German champions, was expected to remain in charge, but the club suddenly announced that he would step down at the end of the season. Like Liverpool, the club is serious about signing a Spanish coach, Fabrizio Romano reported.

“Liverpool and FC Bayern remain both keen on appointing Xabi Alonso as new head coach at the end of the season.”

“Discussions to follow.”

“There’s no formal release clause into his contract at Bayer but he will be allowed to leave in case he decides to try new chapter.”
