Bayern Munich and David Alaba set to Pathways
Bayern Munich has withdrawn their offer of a contract extension to David Alaba. This was according to the club’s president Herbert Hainer. 28-years-old David Alaba will be out of contract next summer. The German side is not willing to extend his contract he could be leaving the Bavarian on a free transfer.
The versatile defender has made almost 400 appearances for Bayern and won 17 major trophies. Alaba joined the Germain side in 2010.
Bayern had hoped Alaba would extend his stay after he helped the club to the treble last season. But the president is saying he is not willing to extend player’s contract. Bayern said; “We presented him with a really, very good, very fair, competitive offer especially during these times.” The Bayern chief said,.
He also said: “We told David’s agent during the last meeting that we wanted clarity and an answer by the end of October because we want to plan for such an important position and player. But we haven’t heard anything until Saturday.
“Our sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic then contacted the agent and the answer was that the offer is still unsatisfying and that we should think more. “We then decided to take the offer off the table completely. That means there is no longer any offer.”
The news will come as a boost to Alaba’s host of suitors, while further reports from Germany claim the player and his representatives were surprised by Bayern’s decision to withdraw their offer.
