If you were Xabi Alonso, would you pick Bayern Munich, Liverpool, or wait for the Real Madrid job to become available?

Recent reports from Germany suggest that Xabi Alonso’s preferred destination is Munich, a choice that may come as a disappointment to some.

After leading Bayer Leverkusen to the brink of Bundesliga glory this season, it is a surprise that he would opt for an easier path in Munich.

Winning the Bundesliga with Leverkusen has undoubtedly been a remarkable achievement. Moving to Munich, where success is almost expected, might not provide the same level of challenge.

However, there are undeniable perks, such as a smoother journey in the Champions League.

Leaving Leverkusen makes sense from a career perspective, especially with the likelihood of key players departing in the summer.

While Barcelona may seem improbable due to Alonso’s ties to Madrid, Liverpool could be an ideal destination.

Joining Liverpool would offer Alonso a unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of a legendary manager like Jürgen Klopp.

Unlike Bayern Munich or even Real Madrid, the Liverpool job does not become available frequently. It presents a chance for Xabi Alonso to build something special. A chance to leave a lasting legacy, rather than simply joining a club where success is expected year after year.
