Barcelona remains optimistic that defender David Alaba, who revealed a few days ago that he was leaving Bayern in the summer, will sign.
Diario Sport reports that Catalan presidential candidate Joan Laporta is in contact with Pini Zahavi, the player’s agent. They have a warm relationship.
Laporta has made sure that the Real Madrid-Alaba negotiations have stopped going forward. That said, considering the extreme crisis Barca is currently going through, a deal for the Austrian to transfer to the Catalan club seems impossible.
Alaba had reached contract terms with Real Madrid earlier, it was reported.
This season, the player who joined Bayern’s academy in 2008 has played 20 Bundesliga games, scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist.
