Next Bayern Munich Manager Odds: Roberto De Zerbi new 11/8 favourite following Xabi Alonso setback

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi is the new 11/8 favourite to be the next Bayern Munich manager after previous frontrunner Xabi Alonso's announcement that he will remain at Bayer Leverkusen beyond this season.

Bayern are on the hunt for a new manager after it was confirmed in February that current boss Thomas Tuchel will leave his role at the end of the season, with the Bavarian giants set to miss out on the Bundesliga title for the first time in 12 years with Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen a staggering 13 points in front.

With ex-Bayern midfielder Alonso out of the running, highly-rated Brighton manager De Zerbi has become increasingly linked with the vacant role at the Allianz Arena, with the Italian's progressive style of play implemented in the Premier League catching the radar of a host of Europe's top clubs.

44-year-old De Zerbi, who guided Brighton into European football for the first time in the club's history with a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League last season, has drawn particular praise from legendary Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for his innovative coaching methods.

Faced with another season in competition with Alonso's breathtaking Bayer Leverkusen side, the Bayern hierarchy may view De Zerbi as the perfect figure to breathe new life into the six-time Champions League winners.

Bayern are not the only European heavyweight in the market for a new manager, however, with Liverpool and Barcelona also reportedly monitoring De Zerbi in their own pursuits for a new boss ahead of next season.

Ex-Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk manager De Zerbi is not the only name in the frame for the Bayern post either, with the likes of former boss Nagelsmann, Sporting Lisbon's Ruben Amorim and Stuttgart's Sebastian Hoeness also firmly in the frame for the gig.
