Xabi Alonso ready to join Real Madrid amid Liverpool links

Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso has been linked with several European clubs in recent months, including Liverpool and Real Madrid.

A report from Defensa Central claims that Xabi Alonso is a target for clubs like Liverpool and Real Madrid. However, the Bayer Leverkusen manager is prepared to join the Spanish club instead of the Reds.

Liverpool need to plan for a future without Jurgen Klopp, and the Spaniard has been identified as a potential target. Alonso has done an impressive job at the German club, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for Liverpool.

Similarly, Real Madrid are looking to bring in quality long-term successor to Carlo Ancelotti. Alonso has certainly shown that he has the pedigree to shine at a top club, and the opportunity to take over at clubs like Liverpool and Real Madrid will be tempting for any young manager.

However, the pressure to win trophies is massive at these clubs, and it will be interesting to see if Alonso can make an instant impact. The Spaniard has shown that he is tactically astute but he will have to handle the pressure of top clubs like Real Madrid.

The 41-year-old will be hoping that the fans will be on his side from day one, and help him guide the team towards success.

Both Klopp and Ancelotti have been exceptional for their respective clubs, and replacing them will not be an easy task. Despite his obvious potential, Alonso will be a gamble for now, and it remains to be seen whether he can live up to the expectations.
