Man City ‘to make offer’ for £400k p/w man, 28 y/o ‘prefers’ Spain but clubs are ‘struggling financially’


Manchester City are on the hunt for a left-back this summer as Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko have uncertain futures at the Etihad Stadium –  Mendy is no longer commanding a starting place under Pep Guardiola while the City boss would like to upgrade Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The Daily Star say City are expected ‘to make an offer’ for David Alaba. The 28-year-old ‘prefers’ a move to Spain amid interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid, but the two clubs are ‘struggling financially’ would could kill their hopes of landing his signature.

Where will Manchester City finish this season?





Alaba joined Bayern Munich from Austria Wien in 2008 and has gone on to make 419 appearances in all competitions, scoring 33 goals and supplying 50 assists (Transfermarkt). He’s won nine Bundesliga titles, six German Cups and two Champions League trophies in his 13 years at the Allianz Arena but is calling time at Bayern this summer.

The Austrian international is out of contract in the coming months and Bayern are resigned to losing him on a free transfer. That means any club can land the signature of a world-class defender if they’re willing to match his salary demands, believed to be around £400k-per-week.

City don’t want to break their wage budget on one player, but they might have the edge in negotiations as they have greater resources than the competition.
