Following the notion that his contract with Bayern Munich will expire at the end of the season, David Alaba preferred a Premier League move over going to Spain-Real Madrid precisely- at the end of the 2020/21 season which will pave way for the summer transfer windows.
Alaba, who kicked off his football career, playing in an Austrian league in Vienna before he secured a move to Germany-Bayern Munich-in 2008. He played in the Bayern’s feeder’s team before he was elevated to the senior cadre in 2011.
Reports gathered last month that the Spanish giants were the favourites to sign the Austrian, but the news turned to be rumour as there is no agreement between Alaba and the Los Blancos, as the offers from the English topflight are waiting for the 28-year-old defender.
But Alaba’s wish was to play in the Premier League in the quest to find new challenges in England which give him the free will to test himself. Alaba’s agent, Pini Zahavi is patiently waiting for the right offers from England, which is lucrative, which put Chelsea on the radar as admirers of the versatile player.
Fortunately for Alaba, Zahavi has a close tie with the West-Londoners who had vowed to look for a possible way to sign the player. Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had broken the ice for the signature of the two-time UEFA Champions League winner, but the contract is still in safe hands at the arrival of Thomas Tuchel.
Nevertheless, Chelsea is not the only admirer of the defender, two Manchester clubs-City and United- and Liverpool with Barcelona are all lining up for Alaba.
There are three positions at which David Alaba can fit into if signed by any club in the summer transfer window. He can be played as a center-back and defensive midfielder which has played severally at the Allianz Arena. His natural position-left back- suits him the most.
He has made 18 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern Munich in the 2020/21 campaign
