Bayern Munich is ready to block David Alaba’s move in January if an offer is made by a player, reports Sport Bild. There is an expiring deal for the Austrian defender at the club and it seems likely that he will leave the club. Bayern, however, does not want to sell Alaba and has told him that during the January transfer window they will not consider a bid for him.
Despite drawing back their contract bid, the German giants have not lost their hopes of agreeing to a new contract with Alaba. Several club reports suggested that defender agent Pini Zahavi had requested an annual salary of over EUR 19 million, which would surpass the wages of star striker Robert Lewandowski. Bayern declined and later stated that their bid had been canceled.
In recent weeks, Alaba has been linked with moves to the Premier League, LaLiga, and Serie A. Many clubs in Europe have been alerted by the possibility of signing a player like Alaba on a free transfer. If the defender has these exorbitant requests, however, there would not be many clubs that would like to pay for Alaba that much.
