No reason to doubt that he will stay here…Leverkusen CEO speaks out on Xabi Alonso’s future

Xabi Alonso could replace Thomas Tuchel as Bayern Munich head coach Transfers

With Leverkusen, he took the team to the top of the Bundesliga and to the quarterfinals of the Europa League. The former Liverpool and Bayern midfielder, who has shown his skills as a coach, is now a sought-after candidate.

Liverpool has named Alonso as the leading candidate to succeed Jurgen Klopp, while Bayern Munich is also looking for a new mananger as Thomas Tuchel’s tenure ends in June.

According to Sky Sports Germany, Bayern Munich have already begun discussions with the Spanish coach about taking over from Tuchel this summer.

The manager, a World Cup winner as a player, has a contractual exit clause of about 15 million euros, but it is not valid until the summer of 2025, so Bayern’s cost this summer will be between 15 and 25 million euros.

The contract runs through June 2026, but the original plan was for Alonso to remain at Leverkusen and compete in the Champions League, but the club’s CEO, Fernando Caro, spoke about recent developments at the club, including the situation surrounding Xabi Alonso.

“Xabi Alonso has a contract until 2026 and there is no reason to doubt that he will stay here.”

“In football you never know what will happen but I have a lot of trust, we have a good relationship.”

Besides Xabi Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann and Ruben Amorim are also on the list, so the Spanish commander is not the only target.

The burden of succeeding Jurgen Klopp is a big one for everyone, and the focus is on those who can withstand it and still make Liverpool’s transition period a success.

The former Spain midfielder is rumored to be in line to stay in the Bundesliga next season and take over for Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, with his former clubs all showing interest.
