Xabi Alonso is an “ideal” alternative to Ancelotti

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Hence the future of the former manager of AC Milan is still up in the air. In order to prepare for the possibility that Ancelotti departs the club, SportBILD has reported that Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, is still looking into his possibilities. According to the report, Xabi Alonso is one of Perez’s favourites. Since being hired as the head coach of Bayer Leverkusen, the former Real Madrid midfielder proved his calibre. Alonso has led the squad to success by creating a strong foundation. He established a tactical identity that have made Leverkusen a side hard to beat in the Bundesliga even if they are not competing for a spot in the top four.

According to the source, Florentino Perez believes Alonso would be the “ideal” alternative for Ancelotti if he decide to leave the team at the end of the current campaign. The Spaniard is familiar with Santiago Bernabeu’s dynamics and playing style as a former Real Madrid player. He is a strong prospect for a squad like Real Madrid since he emanates confidence and respect among his colleagues.

As Real Madrid waits until the end of the season to assess Carlo Ancelotti’s future. Alonso may in fact prove to be a manager worth watching as Zinedine Zidane’s return takes a complicated turn. Both parties are in for a thrilling summer.
