Tuchel was only appointed as Bayern Munich manager in March as he replaced Julian Nagelsmann.

The club manage to win the Bundesliga title, although they did need help from Borussia Dortmund who failed to win on the final day of the season.

Reports in Germany have claimed that Tuchel is “irritating” the club’s board with his negative comments about the club’s summer transfer business.

Further claims have now suggested that Bayern are already planning for Tuchel to leave the club, and his replacement has been identified.

It has been claimed Alonso is Bayern’s number one target to replace Tuchel.

The Spaniard has built a strong reputation as a manager since taking the helm at Bayer Leverkusen.

Alonso is familiar with Bayern, having spent the last three years of his playing career at the club after leaving Real Madrid.

During his time at the Allianz Arena, the midfielder won three league titles, a DFB-Poka title and German Super Cup.


Since becoming manager of Leverkusen, he has overseen 21 wins from 41 games.

When Alonso was appointed, he managed to drag the club away from the relegation zone to a sixth-placed finish and a semi-final in the Europa League.

Alonso’s performance saw him linked with the vacant Tottenham job in the summer before Ange Postecoglou took the role.

He is also a potential target for Madrid once Carlo Ancelotti leaves the club at the end of the season.

He’s also been tipped to one day take over from Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
