David Alaba will announce on Tuesday, as announced by the German newspaper Bild in its online edition, that he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season (2:00 p.m.). The farewell to the Austrian defender was an open secret, but twelve years later, according to Bild, the time would have come to make the end of his Allianz Arena stage official. Because of the excessive wage that Alaba asked to renew in Munich, this is the result of the frustrating negotiations with Bayern.
The 28-year-old footballer continues to retain his will to join the Real Madrid ranks, as Bild adds. “Alaba’s wish for next season: Real Madrid” takes the German media for granted, indeed, adding that if the deals with the white team do not come to fruition, he does not rule out giving way to the English Premier League. Real Madrid knows what the two-time European champion is looking for: 22 million in five seasons per year. Lots of cash.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Chairman of the Bayern Board of Directors, said recently, “Florentino has not contacted us. It’s not like he needs to, either. The player is free to sign anywhere he wants from January 2 onwards. That’s how the laws of FIFA dictate, that’s how the organization runs. I don’t know how far the talks with Real Madrid have gone. All I know is that they’re a fantastic club.”
“It doesn’t matter that he is experiencing a difficult moment and hasn’t been as successful as he was used to in recent years, it’s still a great club and you have to understand the player,” he concluded.
