Bayern Munich has sent a stern warning to Chelsea over claims David Alaba could be joining their club soon. Chelsea transfer target David Alaba is not going anywhere. That’s according to Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick who insists the 27-year-old won’t be leaving Germany.
Blues boss, Frank Lampard is ready to splash some cash this month after a transfer ban was lifted. Austria international Alaba, who is valued at around £60m has been touted as a potential option.
But Flick claims his star man is not up for grabs.
When quizzed about the Premier League heavyweight’s reported interest, Flick curtly replied: “He is not for sale.”
Lampard desperately needs a new left-back but a sourcing a suitable candidate this month won’t be easy. Ex-Blues defender Frank Sinclair reckons the club should spend big on Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell.
David Alaba’s who is of both Nigeria and Philippine decent, can often be seen representing both countries flag proudly. His Dad George is a Nigerian prince and arrived in Vienna to study Economics before becoming the first black guard soldier in the Austrian army. He is now a musician and DJ.
David’s mother, Gina, is a nurse, but was named Miss Philippines, the country of her birth, in the 1980s. Born in the Austrian capital on 24 June, 1992, David often has the Filipino flag stitched onto his boots while he waved the Nigerian one on the pitch at Wembley after Bayern’s 2012/13 UEFA Champions League final win.
