Xabi Alonso: Bayern prepared to quadruple salary

Bayern Munich is allegedly prepared to quadruple Xabi Alonso’s salary in a bid to convince him to take on the role of the club’s new manager.

Alonso, who is also a target for Liverpool, has steered Bayer Leverkusen to the summit of the Bundesliga table, with an impressive record of 19 victories and four draws from 23 matches.

Leverkusen’s notable 3-0 victory over Bayern added to the pressure on current manager Thomas Tuchel, who was announced last week to be departing the Bavarian club at the end of the season.

“Bayern Munich are prepared to break the bank to beat Liverpool to Xabi Alonso,” an article in the Mirror reads.

“The Bavarian giants are ready to hand Alonso a staggering £20 million-a-year salary to leave shock runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen in the summer after announcing that Thomas Tuchel will be stepping down as coach at the end of the season.

“That would make Alonso the highest-paid boss in Bundesliga history – and give him parity with the Premier League ’s top-earning manager Pep Guardiola.

“And although the 42-year-old Spaniard is unlikely to make money his No. 1 priority, the huge financial package on offer at Bayern will crank up the pressure on Liverpool as they search for a successor for Jurgen Klopp.

“Klopp, who will leave Anfield at the end of the season, is paid around £15 million-a-year. Alonso is viewed by many at Liverpool as a perfect fit.

“The Spaniard earns around £5 milliion at Leverkusen. That’s half of what Tuchel is paid in Munich when bonuses are factored in. He played for Liverpool and under Guardiola at Bayern during a glittering playing career that also saw him star for Real Madrid.”
