The Catalan giants have been linked with the Austria international for some time now, and he’s expected to leave the Allianz Arena in the summer as a free agent.
Yet even though he will be free he could still be out of Barca’s financial reach. Alba is said to earn around €8 million a season currently at Bayern Munich.
He was also offered a contract extension with a pay rise that would have taken his wages closer to €12 million per season but that offer has since been withdrawn.
Salaries are currently a bit of a hot topic at Barca. The club remain in talks with the players about pay-cuts as they bid to reduce their spending to help ease their financial troubles.
