Chelsea signing Bayern-lifer David Alaba has become a rumor mill staple over the course of 2020, as the 28-year-old (how is he still only 28!?) continues to run down his contract towards its expirations at the end of the season. It would appear that he’s either definitely not signing another extension, or he’s definitely playing some risky hardball.

Even amidst a Youth Revolution™, it wouldn’t need much explanation if we were to make a (free transfer) play for the world class defender, but it would appear that those growing rumors of potential January talks and, as per AS, a “strong bid” are rather misplaced.
