Xabi Alonso’s Preference for Bayern Munich Job over Liverpool Revealed in Football News from Express.co.uk

In January, Jurgen Klopp announced his decision to step down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season, citing a need to take responsibility for his departure due to feeling ‘running out of energy’ in the Anfield dugout. Despite being unlikely to be sacked, the former Borussia Dortmund boss acknowledged the support from the club’s hierarchy through thick and thin. Potential replacements for Klopp include Ruben Amorim, Roberto De Zerbi, and Julian Nagelsmann. Alonso is Liverpool’s top managerial target, having impressed with Bayer Leverkusen’s performance in the Bundesliga.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich is also interested in Alonso, as Thomas Tuchel is under increasing pressure as Bayern boss. It is reported that Alonso favors joining Liverpool over Bayern at the moment, though he is aware of interest from both clubs. Liverpool’s certainty over needing a new manager due to Klopp’s early announcement is seen as an advantage. However, Alonso has remained focused on his current role with Leverkusen, where he has guided his side to the top of the table.

There are reports claiming that Alonso is free to leave Leverkusen in favor of a return to one of his former clubs, which include Liverpool, Bayern, and Real Madrid. Nevertheless, the club’s higher powers have stated that there is no release clause in Alonso’s contract, and any move would require their approval.
