We in for Alaba at Bayern Ed? One of the best in the world isn’t he and don’t look like Barcelona or real can do a deal. Papers say united and Chelsea might comoete for his signing with us, anything in all this?

{Ed002's Note - David Alaba (CB/LB) Bayern Munich have offered David Alaba a new contract but he has so far not agreed to sign it and is entering the final year of his existing deal. The club has had to use a makeshift defence this season and is being pressured to sell another player they wish to hang on to, but will sell Alaba this summer if he does not agree a new contract - letting them turn their attention to fixing the bigger defensive issue once they have dealt with their transfer priority. Real Madrid considered Alaba as an option - but money is an issue this summer. Barcelona have also been interested in the past but have other priorities and again money is an issue. Manchester City have other preferred options and will only return if they are not fruitful and his is put up for sale. He won't be moving to Inter who have offered the option and will hold out as long as he can to see if Real Madrid or Barcelona call for him - but both have priorities in other positions in a financially difficult market. Two other clubs have a declared interest but until he is available nothing can happen.}

Cheers pal. Chance he could just stay and get a cheaper move where he wants next year then.

{Ed002's Note - If he stays he will be signing a new contract but there is a disagreement as he is seeking huge wages - that is the only real issue stopping him staying. Bayern have made a very significant offer that has been rejected.}

Difficult spot for Bayern with Davies developing so quickly.
