Man City target David Alaba demanding £260k-a-week as Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona eye transfer
DAVID ALABA will reportedly leave Bayern Munich in January after the club failed to meet his huge pay rise demands.
This has opened the door for a move to European giants Juventus, Barcelona or Man City who have all expressed interested in the defender, according to TuttoSport.
Alaba, 28, is demanding no less than £280,000-a-week (£13million-a-year) for a renewal which Bayern are refusing to meet.
They believe his agent Pini Zahavi is to blame for his ludicrous demands and have labelled the agent a 'greedy piranha.'
Former club president Uli Hoeness said: "He [Alaba] has a greedy piranha for an agent.
"His father, whom I like a lot, he’s letting himself be influenced by him very much.
"It’s purely about money.
"If you only knew what Mr Zahavi demands only for himself for David’s signature for an eight-figure sum."
But as he is out of contract next summer it would be in the club's best interest to cash in on him now to prevent him leaving on a free.
This means he can sign a pre-agreement with a new team from January 1 to February 1 next year.
TuttoSport also claim that Juve are leading the race for his signature and are prepared to match his outlandish demands.
They say the Serie A champions are willing to do whatever it takes to sign him and have the means to do so as they didn't take a huge financial hit during the coronavirus pandemic.
The same can't be said about Barca, who will be priced out of a move right now as they are currently facing bankruptcy.
But Juve could face stiff competition from City who have been interested in him for a long time.
Pep Guardiola is in dire need of a new defender and may have the edge in negotiations as he developed a relationship with Alaba when he was manager at Bayern.
