  15. <description><p> Thomas Tuchel's departure from Bayern Munich could see him mixed up in a merry-go-round alongside Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso and the soon-to-depart Jurgen Klopp.[BREAK]He'll depart at the end of the season, coinciding with the exit of Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, who brought Reds fans to a standstill with his revelation.</p> <p>Replacing the Champions League-winning boss has become priority number one for the Merseyside club, and all eyes immediately turned to their former midfielder Alonso.[BREAK]</p> <p>"It was a special time from the first day till the last.[BREAK]<p> But, Alonso has also been vocal over his time in Merseyside, stating in a talkSPORT interview from 2018: â\x80\x9cIf I decide somewhere along the way to take my chances as a manager, my link, my commitment and my passion with Liverpool is there.[BREAK]Weâ\x80\x99ll see if we can cross paths in our ways.â\x80\x9d </p> <p>It seems like the fork in Alonso's road leads to two of his former clubs, and despite his current employer insisting he'll stay, all expectations are that an exit route will be chosen.</p> <p>Whoever loses out on the in-demand Spaniard will have to settle, but a situation where Tuchel touches down in Catalonia, Alonso chooses from two European giants, and both Klopp and Xavi take a step back, is likely.</p> <p> Join our new WhatsApp community and receive your daily dose of Mirror Football content[BREAK]If you don't like our community, you can check out any time you like</description>
