RUMOURS: Xabi Alonso set for retirement

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso is reportedly planning to retire from football at the end of the season.

Lahm is considering retiring at the end of the season and in case he decides to hang his boots, Bayern Munich are not going to stand in the way of their legendary captain.

If Xabi insists on leaving Bayern he will end a career that has extended over the past 18 years, in which he won several titles, including two Champions League trophies, with Liverpool and Real Madrid, as well as the European Championship and the World Cup with Spain.

Alonso spent five seasons with Real while winning another Champions League crown (2013-14), La Liga (2011-12) and two Copa del Rey titles.

At Bayern, he has won the Bundesliga twice, the German Cup and the German Super Cup. He played a massive role in the dominant Spanish side that claimed back-to-back European championships and the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He announced retirement from worldwide football in the year 2014.

The Bayern Munich midfielder has yet to confirm the news himself, but the German media outlet report that Alonso will walk away from the club after his contract expires in June. After 143 appearances in five years, Alonso joined Real Madrid in the year 2009, where he stayed on for five years, before making a move to Germany.

Alonso is widely regarded as one of the best central midfielders of his generation, and was a real fan favourite during his time at Anfield with Liverpool.
