According to a report from BILD, David Alaba is holding out for a new contract with Bayern Munich. The versatile defender extraordinaire has been linked with a move out of Germany with his deal expiring at the end of next season.
The rumors have seen him connected to the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan. Although, honestly, it does seem like Alaba might simply be using this as leverage. The implications of his contract demands seem to be his desire for a €15 million a year contract, putting him among the highest paid at the club.
Alaba’s production recently certainly hasn’t made the same headlines his work did in his first few high profile seasons at Bayern Munich. However, he remains an incredibly versatile player who any team would be lucky to have. This in all likelihood is a method for a better contract.
