Bayern Munich could turn to Ralf Rangnick as they wait for Xabi Alonso

According to L’Équipe, Bayern Munich’s managerial search could turn to Ralf Rangnick after they were shocked by Julian Nagelsman’s decision to extend his contract with the German national team until 2026. 

With Thomas Tuchel set to leave at the end of the season, Bayern have been on a public hunt for their next manager. The club had been keen on convincing Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso to take over from the German, but their plans were left in disarray when the Basque man decided to stay for another season with the recently crowned Bundesliga champions. 

Ralf Rangnick a surprising choice  

Rangnick who once managed Manchester United but now is in charge of the Austrian national team would be a surprising choice, but one the club have long kept tabs on. He would likely only be there for a single season with the club still keen on trying to convince Alonso to take over. 

Another choice could be Zinedine Zidane, with Mundo Deportivo reporting earlier today that the club were close to convincing the Frenchman to join, although L’Équipe have suggested that the former World Cup winner is keeping close tabs on Manchester United’s situation
