Bayern Munich might lose David Alaba amid Barcelona and Real Madrid interest, according to Christian Falk of Sportsbild.

Bayern Munich Might Lose David Alaba Amid Barcelona and Real Madrid

Alaba’s time at Bayern Munich

Bar a six-month loan spell at Hoffenheim, Alaba has spent his entire professional career at Bayern Munich. The Austrian international has been the Reds’ first-choice left-back for almost the entirety of the last decade. He can also fill in at centre-back, where he has spent much of this campaign.

In his 372 matches for Bayern, Alaba has scored 30 goals and assisted 48. He has been credited with being the world’s best left-back, but with his most recent comments, it is uncertain whether his future lies in Munich.

What Alaba Said

Although he said that he is happy with the Star of the South, Alaba can ‘imagine taking a different path.

Alaba has Barcelona and Real Madrid both interested in signing him, in addition to others like Chelsea, and both clubs will fight hard to win the signature of the 27-year-old

Bayern Munich Might Lose David Alaba with Real and Barca Fighting Over him

With just over a year left on his contract, Bayern have not yet offered Alaba a renewal. Due to this situation, the left-back could be up for sale for as little as €35-40m, despite transfermarkt giving him a market value of over €65.

Alaba could help Barcelona a lot in the immediate future. Jordi Alba, 31, is ageing despite still being the first choice, and Júnior Firpo, 23, is slowly making his way into the starting team. Alaba could provide a transition between the two, and a great one at that.

Real Madrid have a similar situation. Marcelo is ageing at 31, while Ferland Mendy is an up and coming 24-year-old who is integrating into the first team. Alaba would be the perfect player to bridge the gap, as an excellent defender, while also giving the younger players a chance.
