Xabi Alonso appears set to remain at Bayer Leverkusen for at least another season, according to reliable sources like @_pauljoyce. This news will come as a relief to Leverkusen fans and a disappointment to those at Liverpool and Bayern Munich, both of whom were interested in acquiring his managerial talents.

Building Success at Leverkusen

Alonso's first full season at Leverkusen has been a resounding success. The team is currently on course to win their first-ever Bundesliga title, sitting comfortably ahead of the competition. This achievement, coupled with the positive atmosphere at the club, seems to be a major factor in Xabi Alonso staying at Leverkusen.

Release Clause Looms

While there's no formal communication to the club yet, reports suggest a clear plan is in place. Interestingly, a release clause will be activated in Alonso's contract in 2025. This could open the door for a potential move in the future, but for now, Xabi Alonso staying at Leverkusen looks like the most likely scenario.

Liverpool and Bayern Move On

With Xabi Alonso staying at Leverkusen, Liverpool have reportedly shifted their focus to Ruben Amorim, although other options are also being considered. Similarly, Bayern Munich, while still interested, seem to have accepted the situation and are prepared to wait for a potential future opportunity. Uli Hoeneß, Bayern's honorary president, even commented that signing Alonso now feels "very difficult, if not impossible."

Official Announcement Soon

While the news suggests Xabi Alonso staying at Leverkusen, an official announcement is still awaited. This will likely come soon, putting an end to the speculation surrounding his future.

This is a positive development for the club. His leadership and tactical prowess have been instrumental in their current success. Fans will be excited to see him continue building on this momentum and potentially challenge for European glory next season.
