Doubts about direction at Bayern…Xabi Alonso has two choices: stay at Leverkusen or move to Liverpool

Leverkusen prepares for Xabi Alonso's exit while the former German national team head coach is the leading candidate Transfers

Xabi Alonso is the most likely candidate to succeed Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool’s top brass are high on him, both because of his background at Anfield as a player and because of the skills he has demonstrated at Bayer Leverkusen.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich, which announced the retirement of coach Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, is also eyeing the coach. Like Liverpool, he was a member of the club during his time there and has good relationship values with both teams.

However, the Spanish coach may not be open to a move to the German champions. According to TZ, he is aware of the ongoing unrest at Bayern, both on and off the pitch, and is questioning whether leading the Allianz Arena is the right next career move.

The report also says that staying at Bayer Leverkusen for one more season or a new challenge at Anfield are the two leading options at the moment.

They are the dominant force in the Bundesliga, with Bayern trailing behind. It is the natural order of things to want to bring in the coach of the team closest to the Meistershalle, and it is only natural that they would contact the Basque commander.

Nothing is set in stone yet, nor has he decided to leave. The future is up in the air, but as a Liverpool supporter, I would love to see him lead the team in a stadium where “You’ll never walk alone” echoes through the air.
