Real Madrid have a wonderful manager right now in Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian was the man who delivered La Decima for the club in his first stint at Santiago Bernabeu, and most fans had felt that it was unfair on the part of Los Blancos to have let him go, after just one unsuccessful campaign.

He has been outstanding since returning to Real Madrid for a second run as manager, and guided them to a La Liga and Champions League double last season. Thus, nobody is even thinking about replacing Ancelotti as manager right now.

Yet, there have to be plans in place for the future at the same time. At the end of the day, Ancelotti is 63 years of age and might not be too far away from retiring. And one man that seems to be in Real Madrid’s sight as a potential future manager of the club is Xabi Alonso.

As reported by ESPN, Real Madrid will be watching Alonso’s performance as Bayer Leverkusen manager with interest as they view him as a potential candidate to take charge at Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid will be keeping an eye on Alonso’s run at Bayer Leverkusen

Alonso has been a youth coach at Real Madrid already and was managing the Real Sociedad B side, before getting his big break at Bayer Leverkusen recently.

It has been a shaky start for Alonso at Bayer Leverkusen. It had looked like he had arrived with a magic wand when the German side beat Schalke 4-0 in his first game in charge. But since then, they have suffered a 3-0 defeat vs FC Porto and a 5-1 defeat vs Eintracht Frankfurt, the most number of goals that they have conceded in a game this season.

Of course, these are still early days and let’s see how things go for Alonso in the long run.
