Bayern Munich leads Xabi Alonso battle as they reverse their position with Liverpool in a few weeks

Jurgen Klopp's successor! The Manchester United defender is a great admirer of Xabi Alonso's skills! Transfers

The departure of Xabi Alonso, who leads Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga, has been hectic. Liverpool is interested in replacing Jurgen Klopp, while Bayern Munich is showing strong interest in replacing Thomas Tuchel.

Speculation surrounding the coach has been reported on a daily basis, with various stories being spun.

Some journalists have said that Liverpool is their priority, others are leaning toward staying in Leverkusen, and there is no major swing to any of the three options on the table at this point in time.

And now, new news comes from Italy. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, an Italian journalist, Liverpool initially had the upper hand in the race, but in the past few weeks Bayern has been reeling, and now the German champions seem to be in a better position.

“I thought Liverpool were ahead of Bayern two or three weeks ago, but now Bayern are moving quickly because they believe he’s the perfect coach for the future. At the moment Bayern are ahead of Liverpool. Xabi has a good relationship with Uli Hoeneß and Hoeneß decides what happens. They will do anything to get him”

The Spanish manager is committed to his current position at Leverkusen and is not currently considering a move beyond next season.

He will have to keep his head down until he wins the Bundesliga title, and it seems unlikely that he will decide to go to Liverpool or Bayern.

Still, as the season draws to a close, the reports will only get more heated. Which club will Xabi Alonso lead next season?
