Bayern Munich step up Roberto De Zerbi chase with ex-Man Utd boss among back up options

Real Madrid bound? Roberto De Zerbi emerges as shock contender to take over  from Carlo Ancelotti after impressive Brighton stint |

This summer, Liverpool will have fierce competition from Bayern Munich for Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi.

The Reds are looking to replace Jurgen Klopp, but they are in the same market as Bayern and Barcelona, who are trying to find someone to replace Xavi and Thomas Tuchel. Xabi Alonso, who eliminated himself from the running last week by pledging his future to Bayer Leverkusen, was a target for both Liverpool and Bayern.

De Zerbi became a more appealing proposition as a result, and he made hints about his openness to switching clubs before to Brighton’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. The Italian is regarded as one of the best tactical innovators, and his experience with Sassuolo, Brighton, and Shakhtar Donetsk suggests he might advance to a bigger club.

Rangnick is in command of Austria, while Naglesmann, who was fired little over a year ago, is now looking forward to managing Germany at Euro 2024. Sebastian Hoeness, the nephew of Bayern’s general manager Uli Hoeness, was reportedly a target for Bayern, but he just renewed his contract with Stuttgart.

De Zerbi’s Brighton contract expires in June 2026, although he has a release clause that may be activated this summer for almost £12.8 million. His remarks prior to Bayern’s match against Liverpool will also have inspired Bayern. “I have a different way to decide my future,” De Zerbi said in response to a question about if he could convince Brighton supporters that he will be with the team next season.

“I would like to talk to my club. I have a contract, but the issue isn’t the contract itself; rather, it’s finding a shared goal, strategy, and outlook for the future. Since I have a contract, I haven’t made up my mind about my future yet, but I want to talk to Tony [Bloom], my club, to learn about their plan and his plan—the Tony plan. Then, without any issues, we make the choice together.

“I don’t think my relationship with my players or my supporters can alter in the future. We cannot forget what we did because it is history. I want to maintain my drive and desire in the future. I watch football all day, every day. I would like to know the plan, the project, and the future since I cannot stay here any longer if I am uncomfortable or lack the necessary motivation.”

When asked if he would sign a new deal with Brighton, he said, “Not right now. We could not locate the agreement. The future includes the deal. It’s significant to me and to everyone else, but it’s only a little portion; the plan is the major component. We need to talk to the club.
