David Alaba could be what some South American countries called “the transfer market’s soap opera”. The Austrian defender seems set to leave Bayern Munich, an since he’s been considered on sale, lots of teams are interested in signing him. Among them there are no less than seven big teams on the race.
In France there’s a club dreaming both with Sergio Ramos and David Alaba: it’s Paris Saint-Germain. Despite a high salary would not represent a problem for the Ligue 1 champions, there’s another struggle: the Austrian international has reportedly no interest in moving to that league.
To pay a high salary would not represent that big obstacles for Manchester City either. Also, club’s coach Pep Guardiola would like to have with the defender again in his team. He could also offer him the possibility of playing in the center of the field, something that the defender could find attractive too.
Alaba’s agent, Israel’s Pini Zahavi, has exceptionally good relationship with Chelsea. The Blues look keen on building a strong team with lots of Bundesliga talent, having recently signed Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. The Austrian could perfectly fit into Frank Lampard’s plans, but still, it is not sure if the player is interested.
If there is a league in which Alaba would like to play, that’s the Spanish La Liga. One of the clubs on the run for him is Barcelona. But nevertheless, the club is not in a good position to confront other giants. There also are the favorites: Real Madrid. Given Sergio Ramos’s contract seems to terminate in June with no extension in sight, Alaba could be the perfect successor.
Juventus has always excelled for getting the best free transfers, but still, it’s not the most desired league by Alaba. The Italian side coached by Andrea Pirlo is desperate to go and chase the UEFA Champions League. It will not be easy at all.
As reported per The Independent, Liverpool has decided to quit negotiations given they don’t consider Alaba tall enough to play in the English Premier League, and also, being 29 years old next summer, he could be considered out of the desired age. Apart from that, Manchester United may find Alaba’s salary a bit high too.
