Chelsea now in talks to sign £300,000-a-week star after Madrid make low contract offer
David Alaba is in discussions with the likes of Chelsea as Real Madrid’s contract offer isn’t considered to be acceptable.
There has been alot of speculation regarding the future of Alaba over the past few months, and Chelsea are one club that are very interested in trying to tempt the left-back to the Premier League.
Right now Thomas Tuchel has Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso in that position, and although they have been solid this season, there is a feeling that the German boss will still look to add to his squad in the summer, and Alaba is on the list.
However, it seemed that Real Madrid looked all set to win the race to get the defender signed up, as they seemed to be the club that were most ready to give him that £300,000-a-week contract that he reportedly desires.
BUT WHAT IS THE LATEST?
Reports on Spanish publication Marca have claimed that Madrid have indeed made their moves to try and get a deal done, but have offered too little for Alaba to be happy with and he is now in talks with the likes of Chelsea about a possible deal
There are also talks being held with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, with Alaba yet to have made a decision over the club he’ll join after he leaves Bayern Munich.
Indeed, the Austria international’s contract expires in the summer and there has been huge interest in landing the 28-year-old on a free transfer.
We are massive fans of Alaba and if Chelsea do win the race to get a transfer deal done, they will be signing one hell of a player guys
