So it appears that the Spanish midfielder is set to leave Real Madrid for pastures new, with German giants, Bayern Munich. A move for Alonso that doesn’t take the pressure off, Bayern are a disciplined side who work hard under Pep Guardiola.
According to the Guardian, Bayern have had a £8m bid accepted for the former Liverpool Champions League winner and he is now on his way to Germany to complete his medical.
Bayern Munich lost out on Toni Kroos to Madrid earlier this summer and now they have picked their man to fill the void, Alonso. Blessed with an array of passes, Alonso possesses quality in the middle of the park to protect the back four whilst initiating attacks with his precise distribution.
Is Alonso a good signing for Bayern?
