The word on the street is that Alonso’s got a big decision to make regarding his future, and it looks like Bayern Munich might have the upper hand over Liverpool in this tug-of-war.

Bayern Munich are on the hunt for a new manager after they decide to part ways with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season. They’ve got their eyes set on Alonso, who’s been turning heads with his tactical prowess at Leverkusen.

Meanwhile, over in the Premier League, Liverpool are also in the market for a new boss as Jürgen Klopp said he will step down at the end of the season. The Reds are keen on bringing their former midfielder back to Anfield, but it seems Alonso might have other plans.

Sky Sports has dropped soccer rumors that Alonso is leaning more towards sticking around in Germany rather than making a return to the English top flight. Despite being fully committed to his current gig at Leverkusen, where he’s chasing a historic Bundesliga title, it’s rumored that he’s contemplating a move to Munich. Bayern have already made a move, reaching out to their former player to check if he would be up for a summer switch.

Amidst all this, there’s also been chatter from soccer news outlets about Klopp possibly filling the void at Bayern, but that’s been squashed by his agent, Marc Kosicke. Klopp’s set on hitting the pause button for a year, so it’s all eyes on Alonso for now.

The battle between Bayern and Liverpool for Alonso’s signature adds a spicy twist to the upcoming managerial changes in European football. Alonso’s tactical setup at Leverkusen, with its unique 3-4-2-1 formation, has caught everyone’s attention. It’s all about overloading one side and pushing the wing-backs high, creating a dynamic and fluid style of play.

When you compare the playing styles of Liverpool and Bayern, they’re not worlds apart. Both teams are pretty similar in terms of where they rank for short passes, crosses, and tackles in the final third. This means that Alonso wouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel if he were to take charge of either team. However, the real question is how easily he can imprint his philosophy on the players.

Bayern’s squad, having experienced a carousel of managers in recent years, might be more receptive to new ideas, especially given their recent struggles for consistency. On the other hand, Liverpool’s players are die-hard disciples of Klopp’s high-octane football, which has evolved into a more refined approach. Convincing them to embrace a different style might take some doing.

So, as the managerial saga unfolds, it’s going to be fascinating to see where Alonso ends up. Will he opt for the familiarity of the Bundesliga or take on a new challenge in the Premier League? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure – the football world will be watching closely!
