Real Madrid have found what they are looking for in their search for a successor to coach Carlo Ancelotti: According to a report by “Radio Marca”, the former Spanish world and European champion Xabi Alonso will be the Italian’s successor in 2024, who will then take over the Brazilian national football team.
Accordingly, the club management chose the 41-year-old, who won the Champions League with Real Madrid between 2009 and 2014, among other things. Leverkusen’s excellent start with four wins and a draw in the first five German Bundesliga games is said to have convinced the bosses in Madrid.
Leverkusen would let Alonso go
The former midfield strategist Alonso was already considered Real’s top candidate in the spring. But Alonso, who has been under contract with Leverkusen since October 5, 2022, extended his contract, which runs until 2024, by two years before the start of the season. “We share the vision for the club, we all have ambitions. I’m happy here. I have the desire to do well here, to improve the team and myself. That’s my big goal,” Alonso said about the extension . According to information from “Bild”, it was agreed in the contract talks that Leverkusen would not insist on the contract until 2026 if a top club like Real asked.
Xabi Alonso played for Real Sociedad San Sebastian, Liverpool FC, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich and won the Champions League twice (2005 with Liverpool and 2014 with Real Madrid) and various other titles in three countries – including three league titles with Munich, where he Ended his playing career in 2017.
