Xabi Alonso in contention to become Manchester City assistant?

Real Sociedad B head coach Xabi Alonso is reportedly being eyed up by Pep Guardiola to join him as Manchester City assistant boss from next season.

Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is reportedly in contention to take over as Manchester City assistant manager next season.

Pep Guardiola is on the lookout for a new right-hand man following the departures of Domenec Torrent and Mikel Arteta over the past two years.

According to Goal, Alonso is one of those being eyed up by City boss Guardiola to join him in the Etihad Stadium dugout.

The pair worked together at Bayern Munich, with Alonso describing his countryman as the best coach he had played under.

Alonso, who also represented Real Madrid during his playing days, is currently manager of Real Sociedad's reserve side.
