Bayern Munich will start talks with Zinedine Zidane if Xabi Alonso talks fail

German giants Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up French legend Zinedine Zidane as a potential backup option if their negotiations with current frontrunner Xabi Alonso fall through.

According to Ekrem KONUR, Zidane is open to taking the helm at the Bundesliga club, adding yet another prestigious chapter to his already decorated managerial career.

Zidane has been out of management since stepping down from Real Madrid in 2021, where he enjoyed immense success, winning three Champions League titles and two La Liga crowns. His experience on the world stage and track record of developing winning teams make him an attractive candidate for any top club.

While Xabi Alonso, currently manager of Bayer Leverkusen, remains Bayern’s main target, their pursuit has reportedly hit some snags. Sources haven’t specified the details of these hurdles, but the development has opened the door for other options, with Zidane emerging as a potential contender.

It’s important to note that these are just rumors at this stage, and neither Bayern Munich nor Zidane have confirmed any official talks. However, the prospect of Zidane leading one of the biggest clubs in the world is sure to excite fans and generate plenty of speculation in the coming weeks.
