Xabi Alonso more inclined to join Bayern than Liverpool, per Sky

At this stage, Xabi Alonso is reportedly more willing to join Bayern than Liverpool.
With both Bayern Munich and Liverpool reportedly interested, Bayer Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso will have a tough decision to make this summer: Will he stay, join Bayern, or move to England?

As he has repeatedly stressed, he's currently focused on the task at hand with Bayer Leverkusen, who sit eight points clear of Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga.

However, if Xabi were to make a decision at this stage, he would be more willing to join Bayern than Liverpool, according to Sky Germany.

Meanwhile, Leverkusen remain hopeful of keeping their highly successful coach at the helm.

In addition to Xabi Alonso, Bayern are also monitoring Zinedine Zidane, VfB Stuttgart coach Sebastian Hoeness and Aston Villa manager Unai Emery, according to Monday's edition of Kicker.
