After Bayern Munich withdrew a proposed five-year contract for defender David Alaba, the likes of Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Juventus are waiting in the wings to sign him.

The clubs will be looking to sign the utility player on a free transfer as his contract ends in June 2020. He has been offered a new contract which Bayern described as a good offer.

Speaking on the latest development, Bayern Munich President Herbert Hainer says the club withdrew their offer of a new five-year contract for Alaba after his representative rejected their latest proposal.

David Alaba has been with Bayern Munich since 2008

The contract talks between the 28-year-old, and the German champions Bayern Munich, which he joined in 2008 have dragged on for months, reportedly due to the player’s annual salary.

Die Roten still hold on €11 million as the base wage with €6 million in bonuses, which was the previous offer presented to Alaba. It remains to be seen whether the club will improve their wage package.

“We submitted to David and his advisor some time ago what we think was a very good offer.

“During the last meeting, we had said we wanted clarity by the end of October. We did not hear anything until Saturday and we contacted his advisor.

“The answer was that the offer was still unsatisfactory and we should think about it again. We then decided to take the offer completely off the table. This means there is no longer an offer,” Hainer said.

Alaba can negotiate with Juventus, Inter, Real Madrid, etc after Bayern withdrew latest contract

Having withdrawn their offer, it means Alaba can begin negotiating with new clubs in January at least.

Alaba will be a good signing for any club because he can operate both as a full-back or central defender.

He has won two UEFA Champions League titles with Bayern, as well as nine league titles and six German Cups.

He is now among the players potentially purchasable on a free transfer next summer. Being a utility player, that makes Alaba flexible, as he can also play as a winger, or midfielder.

Now that he is on course with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter and Madrid are observing the situation carefully as they ready to go for the Austrian international.

Meanwhile, TodoFichajes said his agent, Pini Zahavi is planning to offer him to Real Madrid. 

This could leave the Serie A team out of the race provided the Blancos are actually interested in Alaba. Madrid has the purchasing power and they would be willing to meet his wage demand, as they are getting him on a free transfer.

It was gathered that the latest offer only sees Bayern extending the deal to a five-year contract, and Alaba wants to be on par with top earners in the club like Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and skipper, Manuel Nuer.
