Xabi Alonso prefers Bayern Munich over Liverpool – reports

According to Sky Germany, Bayern Munich are ‘optimistic’ about luring Xabi Alonso to the Allianz Arena if he leaves Bayer Leverkusen at the end of the season.

The report also claims that the former Liverpool midfielder would ‘likely’ move to Bayern instead of Anfield, although the 42-year-old does still have over two years to run on his current contract.

“He has proved that he can be a coach for the big time,” said Bayern president Uli Hoeness. “There are hardly any suitable coaches who are currently free. Rather they are coaches who are under contract somewhere and possibly have great success.

“And that makes it much more difficult because clubs like Liverpool, Real Madrid, Leverkusen and FC Bayern are working on it. It’s not so easy to tell them that Bayern is the measure of all things.”

However, Liverpool fans remain confident that Alonso is the man to replace Jurgen Klopp this summer. Let’s hope that happens.
