Bayern Munich defender David Alaba will reportedly leave Bayern Munich after failing to agree a contract renewal.
Alaba’s knock out fights with the Bavarian club have been in the headlines for the majority of this year. The Austrian superstar is demanding a whooping pay rise to commit himself to the European champions.
Bayern Munich refuse to sign off on such a steep pay rise for Alaba. This may turnout to be another toned down version of a similar conflict with midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
Thiago was out of a contract next summer and Bayern decided to sell rather than let him leave for free.
According to Tuttosport, David Alaba will be available for a transfer in January.
They also state that Italian champions Juventus are leading the chase to sign the left back. Top clubs such as Man United, Liverpool, Man City and Real Madrid are also interested.
Man City may move for Alaba in January. They were interested in getting him in the summer, but Bayern rejected an offer for a swap deal between him and Leroy Sane.
Alaba is the player who can fix City’s problems in the left back position. Though Juventus lead the chase, Pep Guardiola may prove to be the edge in negotiations as he developed a relationship with Alaba when he was the manager of Bayern Munich.
