Bayern Munich have been trying to agree a new deal with David Alaba for some time but so far, the talks have failed and it will not be shocking to see the Austrian leave the club.
The versatile defender will be out of contract next summer but the Bavarians would not want to lose him for free and reports have suggested that he could leave for a fee of £30million in the January transfer window (Football Insider).
Earlier this month, FC Inter News revealed that Man Utd are pushing to sign the 28-year-old center back, who was a key member of the Bayern side that won the treble last season.
More recently, Tutto Sport have claimed that the 73-capped international is considering his options and wherever he goes, he will want to agree a bumper contract worth 15 million euros a season i.e. around £258,000-a-week.
This season, so far, Manchester United have already conceded combined 17 goals in the Premier League and the Champions League (10 fixtures) and things must be improved at the back.
Alaba is a decorated star, who has won every major prize with the Allianz outfit and he is at the peak of his game. Even in the current campaign, thje Austrian has regularly started for the European Champions and he has the quality and the experience to strengthen Ole’s back-line.
At the moment, Man Utd’s highest earning star is David De Gea, who gets around £370,000-a-week and after the Spaniard, record signing Paul Pogba gets £290,000-a-week (The Sun).
In your view, should Man United agree a £258,000-a-week deal to secure the signing of David Alaba?
