Xabi Alonso Ending International Career With Spain, Set for Bayern Switch

This time of year seems to be the retirement moment for many experienced players as famous names deciding to end their international football journey, with Xabi Alonso becoming the latest who decided that his time with Spanish national side is up.

Previously, Xavi Hernandez already confirmed his retirement from La Furia Roja, now it’s Alonso who made similar decision of leaving the national side that he helped in achieving many glorious moments.

Alonso parted ways with La Furia Roja after such a disappointing World Cup 2014 experience where Spain failed to advance from the group stage, giving a rather sour end for his long career.

The 32-year-old midfielder had 116 caps for La Furia Roja, a very high number indeed, showcasing how he was an integral part on Spain’s success in international football not long ago.

Aside from leaving the national team, latest news also suggesting that he might be set to part ways with Real Madrid as German side, Bayern Munich, reportedly keen on using Alonso’s service.

It’s an interesting move indeed as not many people were predicting it since, Bayern doesn’t seem to show much interest for Alonso throughout this summer, but suddenly a potential move is on the cards.
