During this last time, David Alaba confirmed his departure from Bayern Munich and, anturally, he is now one of the most chased soccer players for the upcoming transfer market. The 28-year-old center and left back still has a long way ahead in his career and his versatility turn him into a very desirable player.
It happens that, as many other soccer stars in the world, Austrian player's contract with the German team expires at the end of the season, and is already available as a free agent. It seems that David Alaba is chasing a salary of $559.000 per week, and Real Madrid and Chelsea appear to be locked in a penalty shoot-out to sign him.
Although it sounds too high a figure, not having to pay for his pass would justify it. In case the German soccer player moves to England, it would mean that Chelsea agreed to make David Alaba the highest paid player in the Premier League.
The third place of that podium is today conformed by Belgium’s Kevin De Bruyne, who arrived to Manchester City for 2015-16 season after signing from German Bundesliga’s Wolfsburg and as per Spotrac his annual salary is over $22.75 million ($473.000 per week).
David De Gea, who's about to celebrate 10 years playing for Manchester United is paid $26.65 million per year (555.000 per week). The other player to complete the list is Gareth Bale, who receives $ 440,000 per week.
