Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has spoken again about the situation of David Alaba. The versatile Austrian footballer ends contract with him Bayern Munich next June. Without looking to renew, the defender – who can act as a central, winger and even midfielder – will be able to negotiate with any club from the beginning of this year 2021.
This Sunday, Rummenigge’s interview for the medium Sport 1 has seen the light. In it, the manager of the German team has indicated that he has many doubts as to whether it will be possible to resume negotiations for a possible extension of the player’s contract.
He has also been asked about the rumors that place Alaba at Real Madrid from next season. The former footballer has indicated that he is unaware of these speculations, but that the Austrian’s contractual situation allows him to negotiate with another team as of January 1.
“Bayern did everything possible to reach an agreement. We had many conversations, but we wanted an answer from them until the end of October. It did not happen and I do not know if we will resume negotiations. What I want to make clear is that our offer reflected how much we feel for him. But he did not accept it, “said the Bayern Munich CEO.
Rummenigge has also made it clear that Alaba can finish in the Santiago Bernabeu: “I do not know the rumors. You are free to negotiate with whoever you want from January 1”. Finish at Real Madrid as long as the white club undertakes its signing from June and the player neither renews with Bayern nor commits to another team.
It is not certain that he will wear the white elastic, although the merengue outfit is the first option for the Austrian international, who has already been associated with Real Madrid on more than one occasion in the past. Although the defender is also closely followed by clubs of the stature of the Chelsea or the PSG. In addition to having also been placed in the orbit of the Barcelona.
The main headache for clubs that try David Alaba’s ‘yes, I want’ is that the footballer could ask for a token of 20 million euros. A very important figure and more after the complicated year 2020 for all football institutions due to the Covid-19 crisis. In his favor, he says that his destination club would not have to pay anything for his signing when he was released on June 30.
