Alaba’s demands exceed Barca’s threshold

The defender is out of contract next summer

FC Bayern Muenchen v FC Barcelona - Audi Cup Final 2011

Barcelona and David Alaba rumors are a tale as old as time. Pretty much every time Alaba is working towards a new contract at Bayern, the rumors start popping up yet again.

Until I see a family member of Alaba come out and say the rumors aren’t true, I won’t believe they are happening.

Nevertheless, Sport are reporting that Barca and Alaba have in fact been in talks. The German hasn’t signed a new contract with Bayern yet and can leave next summer for free should he wish.

Barca would need to fork out 15 million euros per year for Alaba and some sort of a sign on fee. Amidst the pandemic its more difficult for Barca to afford that caliber of player when they already have the pay volume they do.

Like I said, I’ll believe they’re talking when I see it.
