Bayer Leverkusen Denies Release Clause for Xabi Alonso Amid Real Madrid and Liverpool Speculation

Bayer Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro has dismissed reports of a release clause in manager Xabi Alonso’s contract amid speculation linking the former footballer with a return to former clubs Real Madrid or Liverpool.

Xabi Alonso took over the managerial reins at Bayer Leverkusen just over a year ago and has enjoyed significant success, turning the team’s fortunes around from a challenging position to securing a European finish last season and leading the Bundesliga table this season.

With current Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s contract set to expire next summer, rumors have circulated about the possibility of Alonso returning to the club where he played a significant part of his career. Liverpool has also been mentioned as a potential destination, raising questions about Alonso’s release clause and potential suitors.

However, Carro refuted claims of a release clause in Alonso’s contract, emphasizing the strong relationship between the manager and the club. While there is no written agreement, Carro acknowledged the understanding that they would engage in discussions if Alonso expresses a desire to explore new opportunities.

Carro expressed the club’s hope that Alonso remains content and committed to Bayer Leverkusen’s project. While acknowledging the uncertainties in football, he emphasized the importance of ensuring Alonso’s happiness and success with the club.

Despite potential interest from high-profile clubs, Alonso’s patient and methodical approach to his managerial career, starting with Real Madrid’s youth ranks and progressing to the B team at Real Sociedad before joining Bayer Leverkusen, indicates a preference for stability and sustained growth. The absence of a formal release clause does not rule out future discussions, but Leverkusen remains optimistic about retaining Alonso.
