Gossip: Xabi Alonso Prefers Bayern Munich Over Liverpool; Real Madrid Eyes Alexander-Arnold Amid Contract Talks; Manchester United Eyes Defensive Reinforcement

Bayern Munich Poised in Alonso Pursuit as Liverpool Faces Managerial Setback

In the ongoing managerial race, Bayern Munich appears to be gaining ground in their pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso, leaving Liverpool trailing behind in their bid to secure the esteemed tactician’s services. According to Sky Sports Germany, Bayern Munich has intensified their efforts to secure Alonso’s signature, potentially edging out Liverpool in the process.

Despite the keen interest from both Bayern Munich and Liverpool, Bayern’s approach has been characterized by patience, respecting Leverkusen’s position as Alonso aims to lead the team to Bundesliga glory, alongside competing in the DFB Pokal and Europa League. Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports News revealed, “Our clear information is that if he leaves Leverkusen this summer, he will join Bayern Munich and not Liverpool.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool faces contract negotiations with key players as Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk, and Trent Alexander-Arnold enter the final year of their contracts. While Salah and Van Dijk’s futures remain uncertain, the situation surrounding Alexander-Arnold’s renewal has been complicated by interest from Real Madrid.

Reports suggest that Real Madrid has initiated discussions to potentially secure Alexander-Arnold’s services either this summer or on a free transfer in 2025.

Amidst managerial and contractual deliberations, Manchester United is progressing with plans to reinforce their defense in the upcoming transfer window. The Red Devils are reportedly keen on Juventus center-back Bremer, who boasts a £43 million release clause. Additionally, United is eyeing Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, although negotiations are complicated by Everton’s initial valuation close to £80 million.
