Xabi Alonso to Liverpool: Contract talks positive

Liverpool have offered Alonso a 3-year contract. Talks between Liverpool and Alonso are positive.

Liverpool are on the verge of beating Bayern Munich to the signature of Bayer04 Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso and have moved early by offering him a long-term deal.

Alonso has been strongly linked with the Liverpool managerial position since Jurgen Klopp announced that he would step down at the end of the current campaign.

Liverpool are believed to have offered Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso a three-year deal after holding positive talks with the Spanish coach.

The former Liverpool and Bayern midfielder has had an outstanding campaign as Bayer Leverkusen manager, leading the team to an eight-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga and guiding them to the last 16 of the Europa League as well as reaching the semi-finals of the German Cup.

The Bayer Leverkusen boss is considered to be one of the best young coaches in the world and may be leading Leverkusen to their first-ever Bundesliga title having finished as runners-up five times but have never lifted the trophy.

According to TEAMTALK, “Liverpool have offered Xabi Alonso a three-year contract after positive talks between both parties as the Reds aim to beat Bayern Munich to the manager’s signature.

“If an agreement is reached, any official announcement will be delayed until Klopp has left Anfield.

“Alonso has loved his time with Leverkusen but sees the Liverpool job as too big an opportunity to turn down, and believes he has what it takes to replace Klopp.”

Xabi Alonso enjoyed a prosperous five-year stint at Anfield as a player from 2004 to 2009, where he played a pivotal role in securing triumphs in both the FA Cup and the Champions League.

Alonso has already formulated his plans for Liverpool in terms of transfer.
