David Alaba’s agent, Pini Zahavi, has claimed that the Bayern Munich man has yet to make a decision on his future and where he will play his football next season.

The Austria international has already confirmed he’ll be leaving Bayern when his contract expires and has been linked with a host of top clubs including Barcelona.

La Liga appears to be Alaba’s preferred choice, with reports claiming a deal with Real Madrid has already been agreed, but it seems Barca may also still be in the race.

“David has to choose who wins the race,” Zahavi, told Kicker. The agent reportedly added that Real and Barca are in pole position before adding, “we are still talking to other clubs.”

Kicker seem to think that Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are also in the running, while Zahavi also said there’s “no deadline” for any decisions on Alaba’s future.

Real Madrid still seems to be Alaba’s most likely destination as previous reports have suggested Barca have been put off by the 28-year-old’s wage demands.
