A choice that seems obvious. Working at Real Madrid since the summer of 2021, Carlo Ancelotti will reach the end of his contract at the end of the season and will leave the club in June to take the reins, barring any further developments, of the Brazilian selection. A departure which forces the Merengue leaders to think about his succession, which should take a certain Xabi Alonso. According to Radio Marca, the current coach of Bayer Leverkusen would be the lucky one. “Real Madrid has chosen Xabi Alonso to coach the team next year,” assured journalist Matias Prats.
Former White House player (2009-2014), Alonso impresses at the head of Bayer 04, currently 2nd in the Bundesliga tied with Bayern Munich. In office since October 2022, the Spaniard still has two years of contract in Germany but Real would be ready to poach him. Having passed through the Real Sociedad reserve and the under-14s of the Madrid club, the 2010 world champion with La Roja has a good chance of making his return to the country next summer. To lead, this time, a locker room of stars at the highest European level.
