Xabi Alonso has confirmed that he will continue as Bayer Leverkusen manager. He currently has the German side playing some of the best football in all of Europe, as they sit 10 points clear in the Bundesliga and are undefeated in all competitions this season. A remarkable achievement to say the least and that has drawn the interest of top teams in the Real Madrid legend.

Two of his former clubs were believed to be frontrunners in the race for Alonso, Liverpool and Bayern Munich. Now, both of them find themselves in a difficult situation.

Jurgen Klopp has already announced his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of this season. Thomas Tuchel will be doing the same at Bayern Munich. Thus, two of Europe's biggest clubs will be without a manager come the summer.

As reported by AS, appointing Zinedine Zidane is a fantasy for the Bayern Munich leaders. Everyone at the Bavarian club would welcome the Frenchman's arrival and even more so if he is in a dream duo with his Franck Ribery, as main assistant.

For the longest time, Zidane was linked with the France national team job. But after Didier Deschamps was handed an extension, the club game looks like his best route back into management.

Zidane has not managed since 2021, when he left Real Madrid for the second time. But there is still a lot of demand for the only Champions League three-peat winning manager in football history.

A club like Bayern Munich should be enough to interest most managers. But if there is one thing that has become clear over the past few years, it is that Zidane will only return to management on his own terms. He is not believed to be keen on managing in England. Is it the same for Germany?
