Xabi Alonso gives Cristiano the worst news, the reason why CR7's possible signing for Leverkusen could be stopped

Rumors of Cristiano Ronaldo joining Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen has been shut down.

Xabi Alonso celebrates Bayer Leverkusen's title while Cristiano Ronaldo is upset with Al Nassr.

Cristiano Ronaldo's potential move to Bayer Leverkusen with Xabi Alonso could be stopped because the Spanish manager could soon be headed to coach Real Madrid in the near future. Bayer Leverkusen's CEO Fernando Carro spoke about Alonso's future being in Spain at the Santiago Bernabeu. Carro said, "I have no doubts. One day, Xabi Alonso will be Real Madrid's manager. No doubts at all, zero doubts! The only doubt is when he will sign for Real Madrid. But it will happen, trust me. I am sure."

There were reports suggesting that Leverkusen was interested in Ronaldo, but if Xabi Alonso leaves the club, the Portuguese striker may not be interested in joining the team. Alonso was rumored to leave Leverkusen at the end of the season to either join Liverpool or Bayern Munich since the two clubs are looking for replacements for their current managers at the end of the season. Alonso's current contract at Leverkusen expires in 2026.

Xabi Alonso confirmed in a press conference that he will continue to coach Leverkusen next season and denied talking about the interested clubs who wanted to appoint him this summer. Alonso said, "It’s the right place for me to be, to develop as a coach. The fans showed great support this year. They have all the reasons to believe and dream we can have a great season. The players gave me so many reasons to keep believing in the team. My job is not over here."

Cristiano Ronaldo's time at Al Nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al Nassr that expires in the summer of 2025. Many are wondering if he will continue in Saudi Arabia after 2025, and Eurosport reported a story late last year suggesting the Portuguese striker is looking to extend until 2027. Ronaldo has played 56 games with Al Nassr, scoring 50 goals and providing 14 assists.
