Bayer Leverkusen will not stop Xabi Alonso amid Liverpool links, but confident of keeping him

Liverpool have received a major boost in their pursuit of 42-year-old Xabi Alonso, with Bayer Leverkusen unlikely to stand in his way.

According to a report by Kicker, Liverpool are on the lookout for a new manager, and Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso is their priority target for the role. The Reds have received a boost in their pursuit as the German club will not stand in Alonso’s way if he decides to leave in the summer.

While Leverkusen will not cause any trouble and let the 42-year-old leave, they are confident that he will continue at the club beyond the summer. The Spaniard has made quite a name for himself as a manager. He has already achieved a lot in his short managerial career, and the former Spanish international has transformed Leverkusen into a winning machine.

Die Werkself have been unbeaten all season long and have the opportunity to win three titles. Alonso’s team are all set to end Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga winning streak. Their impressive performances have resulted in a lot of interest in the former midfielder’s services.

Liverpool’s pursuit of Xabi Alonso

Liverpool are one of the clubs keen on having Xabi Alonso on their bench. Jurgen Klopp has already announced that he will be ending his nine-year-long stint at the Merseyside club after the end of the season. The Reds have been on the lookout for a new boss, and they have identified their former midfielder as the ideal option to replace Klopp.

His style of play and his ability to bring the best out of players will help Liverpool maintain their levels in the new era after the departure of the German manager. And, they have received a huge boost in their pursuit as Leverkusen will not stop Alonso from leaving.

Bayer Leverkusen won’t stand in Alonso’s way

If big clubs come knocking and the 42-year-old decides to leave, the German club will not stand in his way. While his contract runs until the summer of 2026 and does not include a release clause, Bayer Leverkusen and Alonso have a gentleman’s agreement that no obstacles will be placed in his way.

Leverkusen will not stand in his way if he decides to part ways, but they remain confident that he will continue at the club. Their managing director Simon Rolfes feels Alonso is committed to the project at hand, and he is unlikely to force an exit in the summer. However, if the Spaniard does put forward the desire to leave, they will let him.
