Manchester City and Juventus fight for Alaba

David Alaba will leave Bayern as a free agent next year, if the men from Munich do not make concessions.

The Austrian defender, together with his agent Zahavi, continue to fight against the management of Bayern for a lucrative contract for the footballer. We have already mentioned the conflict between Alaba and Uli Hoeness, who criticized the greed of the player and the agent, and also did not forget to mention the defender's family.

Last season, David played as a center-back, replacing injured Niklas Süle or Jerome Boateng. There was a lack of experience in positional play, which Alaba tried to compensate for by speed, but even that did not always help.

Now Bayern haму a more progressive left-back in the person of Alfonso Davis, who showed himself after the arrival of Hansi Flick. Therefore, the possible departure of the Austrian will not affect the team's game. From this, Rekordmeister dictates the conditions in the negotiations without any particular fears, which does not particularly please the player with the agent, although he hopes to keep the player, according to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge,

“Yes, certain things have been said, but I'm not a fan of public discussion of contract negotiations. We want to keep David at Bayern after 2021.

Alaba spent 12 years here and grew into an outstanding player. Hopefully we can find a solution,” Rummenigge said.

Two clubs are claiming the defender at once. The first is Manchester City, which are sorely lacking a quality fullback to the left wing. Oleksandr Zinchenko never progressed to a high enough level, Benjamin Mendy joins the attack, but forgets about defense, and Cancelo played from the right all his life and cannot take this position with full understanding.

Therefore, Alaba may end up at Etihad if City win the competition against Juventus. Old Signora are closely following Alaba, although there have not been any official proposals yet. I do not see a great need for the Turinians in it, especially if the Zebras will play three central defenders under Andrea Pirlo.

Given the circumstances, Alaba can drive himself into a stupid situation, finding himself left with nothing. Therefore, it would be more profitable for him to stay at Munich, and not to issue ultimatums to the management, because it is not definite that he will adapt to a new club after so many years of playing in Germany.
