In recent years, Real Madrid and Liverpool have engaged in epic battles on the football field, most notably in UEFA Champions League finals. These matchups have seen Los Blancos emerge victorious. Now, both clubs are vying for the services of the same manager.

Carlo Ancelotti’s second stint with Real Madrid has been a resounding success, often overlooked given the challenges he’s faced with a thin squad and youthful talent. Despite his commendable performance, Ancelotti is expected to part ways with the club when his contract expires this season, with rumors of his move to the Brazil national team.

According to reports from Defensa Central (via The Hard Tackle), Xabi Alonso is a coveted target for both Liverpool and Real Madrid. However, the Spaniard appears inclined towards joining Los Blancos over the Reds.

Alonso’s potential arrival at Real Madrid is promising news for the club. Although he lacks extensive managerial experience, his recent tenure with Bayer Leverkusen showcased his abilities. When Alonso took the reins midway through last season, Leverkusen faced the specter of relegation. Instead, they achieved a remarkable sixth-place finish. This season, they’ve continued to progress and currently lead the Bundesliga.

It’s no surprise that several of Europe’s top clubs have expressed interest in Alonso. The question remains: Where will he ultimately choose to take on his next managerial challenge? The football world waits in anticipation for his decision. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports
