Chelsea are reportedly one of the clubs on alert for a potential transfer deal for Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.
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.

Alaba would surely be an upgrade on the likes of Antonio Rudiger in central defence, whilst also offering CFC an option at left-back or defensive midfield.
Having won the lot at the Allianz Arena, his experience and winning know-how could also help take the west London giants to the next level.
