The report explains that it now looks like Real Madrid and Barcelona may struggle to meet the Austria international’s wage demands, which might open the door to Chelsea or City.

Alaba has had a great career at Bayern and it’s easy to see why so many top clubs are being linked with him as he nears becoming a free agent.

The 28-year-old could have an important role to play at Chelsea, who look in need of defensive reinforcements after an inconsistent season.
