Here’s the latest on the David Alaba contract extension saga — after Bayern Munich took their contract offer off the table, it seems that the Austrian hasn’t begun talking to other clubs yet. Spanish champions Real Madrid were rumored to be interested in Alaba’s services, but Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg claims that there is no contact between the player’s camp and Zinedine Zidane.
With January fast approaching, clubs will soon be able to sign pre-contracts for players whose deals expire next summer. If the report is true, then the fact that Zahavi hasn’t received any real offers yet will probably worry Alaba and his father George, who represents him. However, there are a number of possibilities that could still be true.
