Alaba to leave Bayern and be lured to Manchester United? Ex-Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness gives fans the answer
Ex-Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness says that David Alaba will not be lured away from the club, with Manchester United linked with a possible deal.
The 28-year-old defender has made 382 appearances for the Bundesliga giants, winning nine league titles during his time in Munich, but there has been some shock speculation that he could leave the club this summer after failing to agree a new contract.
That has led to speculation thatole Gunnar Solskjaer is very interested in making a £50 million offer to try and tempt Alaba to the Premier League and add a bit more quality to his back-line.
Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently stated that he is confident that the club can keep hold of Alaba, who he dubbed “the black Beckenbauer”, but there has still been come doubt to that claub.
But now Hoeness also says that he believes Alaba’s future remains with Bayern, as he says that moving to any other club would be a step backwards for the defender.
“I can only say from my own experience that the last million is not that important,” he told DAZN and Goal. “He gets a secure job here, a lot of fun, home, a lot of love from the fans and acceptance, which he would have to work for at another club.
“There is no club that is as familiar, cosy and pleasant as FC Bayern. For him it would perhaps be a step forward financially, but in all other areas it would be a step backwards.
“And according to my feeling, at least the clubs he would like to go to have never knocked, fortunately. And that’s why I hope that he will stay.”
Moving to the Premier League would not be a backwards step would it?
United are one of the biggest teams in the world and if he joined the Red Devils, he would be a massive star in the Premier League.
