Indications have shown that Bayern Munich’s second offer for left-back, David Alaba is already the maximum amount authorized by the club’s supervisory board.
According to Sky Sport’s transfer expert, Max Bielefeld (Sky Sport), the ball is now in Bayern’s court as the Austrian looks like getting ready for a new deal from the European champions.
Speaking with Kicker, Club president Herbert Hainer said there is ongoing talks with Alaba and they are hoping to convince him to signing a new deal. It is hoped that he won’t follow the footstep of Thiago Alcantara who decided not to sign a new deal.
“We’re still talking with David Alaba, no question about it, and I hope that we can still convince him.”
Speaking on the team and environment, which he said is in contrast to the environment at many other clubs. He is therefore optimistic because he has been offered a really competitive offer.
David Alaba wants an increased offer from Bayern Munich
Obviously, the offer made is not really enough for Alaba and his representatives, his father George, and super-agent Pini Zahavi. Zahavi had been implicated in shady dealings that gave Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovic secret stakes in rival players.
It is no doubt that the club hierarchy wants Alaba to sign a new deal.
CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Sky Sport that everyone at Bayern has an interest in David Alaba’s staying at the club beyond June 30, 2021.
Since they are not satisfied with the deal, the ball might not be rolling back into Alaba’s court anytime soon as Bayern had already presented the second offer.
The supervisory board is the entity that must give greenlight to major multi-million transfers and signings. So they have the final say. So, having made their second offer, its hands are tied until they go back to the supervisory board and obtain authorization for an even higher offer.
“The times are really difficult. Agents and players also have to understand that. Only together can we — clubs, players, and agents — reach a good result, also with respect to the good of all soccer,” said Hainer.
With the look of things Alaba is not interested in leaving the Bavarian who gave him the platform to explore and he has become an important player in the side.
The Austria, who is being courted by some top European clubs have the option of thinking of a new challenge should Bayern refused to change their stance.
