Munich (dpa) – Bayern president Herbert Hainer has also stressed a desire for a contract extension with defense chief David Alaba.
“We keep talking to David Alaba, no doubt about it. And I hope we can still convince him because we believe we still have a lot of good arguments,” Hainer told the “kicker”. He does not give up hope “that we can still be successful with David Alaba because we made him a really competitive offer.”
FC Bayern Munich has been negotiating with Alaba and his advisers for weeks to renew the contract, which expires in 2021. Meanwhile, the entire management level of the Bundesliga record champions has publicly praised the Austrian national footballer and emphasized the desire for further cooperation. Negotiations are stalled because both parties have not yet agreed on the compensation.
