David Alaba’s Bayern Munich future looks in serious doubt amid recent transfer gossip that linked him as a target for Manchester United.
The Austria international has been a star player for Bayern for many years now, and his departure could be a real blow for the club and a big boost for whoever gets him.
Sky Sports recently claimed he was on Man Utd’s radar this summer, which makes sense given that he can provide a solid option at both centre-back and left-back – two areas of weakness in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
The latest on Alaba is that it seems he’s failed to agree a new contract with Bayern, which could lead him to push for an exit this summer in order for his club to get a fee from his sale, rather than lose him on a Bosman in a year’s time, according to the reliable Christian Falk…

United will surely hope this can lead to Alaba leaving the Allianz Arena, as the 28-year-old could make a solid upgrade on Victor Lindelof alongside Harry Maguire.
Either that, or he could also surely provide an upgrade on Luke Shaw on the left-hand side of defence.
