He'll move to Bayern Munich, not Liverpool...German reporter highlights Xabi Alonso Transfers

With the sudden announcement of Jurgen Klopp’s resignation, Liverpool is in the process of compiling a list of candidates for a new manager. While several candidates have been floated, including Ruben Amorim and Julian Nagelsmann, Xabi Alonso is the preferred target.

However, Liverpool is not the only club targeting the Spanish captain. Bayern Munich, whose coach Thomas Tuchel is set to leave the team, is also attempting to replace him. Bayer Leverkusen is not giving up trying to convince him to stay, either.

Sky Sport Germany’s Florian Plettenberg has made some high-profile comments about the former Spain midfielder’s departure, saying that if he were to leave his current club, he would more likely move to Allianz Arena than Anfield.

“Bayern are pushing for him but there are no negotiations. Talks have taken place, no negotiations,”

“It’s difficult to get him, but Bayern Munich is optimistic.”

“Clubs like Liverpool and Real Madrid want to sign him. But, again, our clear information: If he would leave Leverkusen in the summer, he would join Bayern Munich and not Liverpool.”
