To compensate for the departure of Thiago Silva, Leonardo and PSG ticked the name David Alaba in the last summer transfer window. At the end of the contract in June 2021, the Austrian would be getting closer and closer to leaving Bavaria. Indeed, the Alaba clan, which had XXL requirements, would have turned down a proposal of almost € 11 million per year and the Bavarian club would in no way want to expand its offer to meet the expectations of the player and his agent Pini Zahavi to meet.
At the end of his contract with PSG, Thiago Silva packed up and took over the management of Chelsea. To replace his former captain, Leonardo would have activated the transfer window last summer. Indeed, PSG’s sporting director would have identified several profiles, including those of Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli), Milan Skriniar (Inter) and David Alaba (Bayern). However, none of these three center-backs left their club in the final transfer window. As for the Austrian, Leonardo would have liked to take advantage of his contractual situation. David Alaba, who was engaged to Bayern Munich by June 2021, has been negotiating with his management for several weeks but would have the worst difficulties getting along with them.
Pini Zahavi would take a huge commission
After the indiscretions from Sport BILD, Bayern made an XXL offer to David Alaba. As the German media stated, the club headed by Hans-Dieter Flick had offered its 28-year-old defender a four-year contract worth 11 million euros per year. David Alaba is said to have said no. While looking to get a better salary, David Alaba would have turned down his management’s offer and waited for them to look up. What the Bayern leaders would not do. Information from Sport 1 confirmed.
No meeting on the program between Bavaria and Alaba?
According to Sport 1, David Alaba actually rejected Bayern’s latest offer. This would amount to EUR 11 million with a premium of around EUR 6 million. The Bavarian club would consider the offer “reasonable and appropriate” economically, but the player and his agent would not see it that way. Also according to Sport 1, David Alaba would ask for a higher salary, while Pini Zahavi would ask for a large commission. And this gluttony would make the negotiations much more difficult. For Bayern, a free start for David Alaba would be the worst case, but it would not be ruled out. Especially since a new meeting between the two parties would not be on the agenda. In any case, Bayern would not lose hope and Hans-Dieter Flick would still believe that David wants to extend Alaba.
