A “positive” signal. This is what Bayern Munich would have received in its negotiations with Xabi Alonso, according to Sky Sport Germany. The Bavarian ogre is experiencing a season far from his standards, relegated ten points behind Bayer Leverkusen, Bundesliga leader. Bayern have already formalized the departure of their coach Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, and would make Alonso, stationed at Leverkusen, their No. 1 choice for the future.

Alonso, a 42-year-old former Spanish midfielder, was named to the Leverkusen bench in October 2022. His team is having an incredible season in the German championship (20 wins, 4 draws and zero defeats) and remains in contention in the Europa League. Alonso would also be courted by Liverpool to take over from Jürgen Klopp.

However, he would be cooled by the pressure of succeeding Klopp, idolized at Liverpool, current leader of the Premier League. Bayern Munich is heading towards a white season for the first time in more than ten years.
