There, Pep Guardiola trains the coach who had Alaba under his wing during his years in Munich and who had also used the 27-year-old for a whole season in defensive midfield, Alaba's favorite position – win-win situation for Bayern and especially for Alaba?

According to his last extension in March 2016, it was discussed that the Austrian would have probation opportunities on his future Favorite position in midfield. He sees this promise as "not fulfilled", it is said. He is particularly angry because another full-back was preferred in Joshua Kimmich and is now used almost exclusively as a six. Alaba, on the other hand, had to help out with central defense, and the 27-year-old has been dreaming of finally being able to play a more creative role at Bayern for years. In the national team, Alaba is the linchpin in midfield. According to "Sport Bild", consultant Pini Zahavi was "informed about the disappointing development".

The TV broadcaster has learned this from the defender's environment.FC Barcelona apparently refrains from Alaba TransferUpdate: 03/22/2020, 07:38 p.m. Numerous stars from the Bundesliga are associated with FC Barcelona. But now the Catalans are apparently withdrawing from almost all transfer negotiations, and the Corona pandemic threatens Barca – like all clubs – a huge minus. The current league leaders of the La Liga could be missing 60 million euros in the summer if the season is not continued, a scenario like this would also have a drastic impact on the Catalans' transfer efforts. As "Mundo Deportivo" reports, Barca wants to refrain from many possible new additions. Accordingly, a change from David Alaba is no longer up for debate.Update: 20.03.2020, 07:31 clock David Alaba leaves several options open for his further career. "I feel very comfortable in Munich. But I can also basically imagine taking a different path. That will show up at some point. I'm not worried about that at the moment," said the Austrian international to the magazine "GQ Gentlemen's Quarterly". How it will go for him one day after his career is "difficult to say," said Alaba. "I know how fast-paced football is and my life so far has been like that. But I can imagine going away for a year or two, for example living in the USA and getting to know the culture there. Or me I'm in Austria, in Vienna, in my home country, or also in Munich. Let's have a look, "said the defender. Update: March 7th, 2020, 1:40 pm Eight stars could leave FC Bayern in the coming summer because their contracts only run until 2021 – including David Alaba.
