The rivalry between Manchester United and Man City will be set rolling again as they have been told that Bayern Munich star David Alaba will be available on a free transfer next year.
David Alaba already informed the club his decision to leave and efforts to convince him to stay in Germany with the Bundesliga giants have failed as talks collapsed between the two parties.
Bayern Munich have reportedly withdrawn their offer of a contract extension for David Alaba after he declined signing it. The search for his replacement obviously starts for Bayern Munich.
David Alaba spent most of his playing career in the Bundesliga and has won major titles in the country and in Europe. His wealth of experience is expected to help in strive in the Premier League.
Narrating all that transpired in the failed negotiations with the 28-year-old and his agent, Bayern president Herbert Hainer told Bavarian outlet BR24 that a good and competitive offer was given to David Alaba, hinting that the club made the best offer available, knowing the financial downturn as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We told David’s agent during the last meeting that we wanted clarity and an answer by the end of October because we want to plan for such an important position and player.
“But we haven’t heard anything until Saturday.
“Our sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic then contacted the agent and the answer was that the offer is still unsatisfying and that we should think more.
“We then decided to take the offer off the table completely. That means there is no longer any offer” he said
Neither David Alaba or his agent is yet to make any public statement as the player still has a running contract with the club but it is assumed that talks will be held with suitors from January.
Man United are struggling to deliver great results at the moment. They are expected to do all it takes to bring in a defender that will pair Harry Maguire.
