David Alaba is nearing the end of his contract at Bayern, and as of now, there are no talks between Bayern and David for a contract extension.
On episode 14 of Fabrizio Romano’s “Here We Go” podcast, Romano and BILD’s Christian Falk had an in depth conversation regarding David Alaba’s future.
The club offered him a deal and he didn’t decide in time. Hence, now there is no offer for the defender to extend his stay at Bavaria.
Come January, he can negotiate with various clubs that would want him, as he would be allowed to do so. With Bayern, there is currently no movement and it is getting difficult.
Alaba is dreaming about playing for clubs of the sizes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. Unfortunately, a move to Spain looks unlikely. On one hand, Zidane isn’t happy because he can’t spend any money on transfers. His position at the Bernabeu is also under question after the recent slump in form.
While Barca are currently searching for defenders, they can’t pay up owing to the financial crisis at hand. These clubs are out of the deal at the moment.
There are a lot of rumours from England, especially Chelsea. It is a norm for Chelsea to talk to everybody available for a transfer. All that said, there is nothing advanced yet.
Chelsea have to play the season with the players they already have. The agents of Alaba are hoping to get him to Chelsea since they have the money to spend on players amidst the dry market.
PSG have been linked with Alaba as well. In his heart, he would really like to stay. He’s a leader at Bayern and now, has to start again and also wants a big amount of money. Bayern are not willing to pay because they have a strict salary structure in place at the club.
The biggest players at the club of the likes of Lewandowski and Muller have had to accept it. Germany in general refrains from shifting from deadlines and structure. They are very particular about these things, as seen in the Sancho transfer saga this summer.
Since Alaba can speak English, Chelsea could be a fit for him. Additionally, there are German players to help him out as well. There are no talks between the two parties yet, but something could materialise in January.
