Barcelona open door for Cjelsea to seal switch deal for David Alaba
Barcelona are likely to give up chasing Bayern Munich star David Alaba, who is also being chased by Premier League giants Chelsea.
There has been a lot of speculation about Alaba’s future in recent months and Chelsea are a club keen to attract the left-back to the Premier League.
Right now, Thomas Tuchel has Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso in that position and while they have been solid this season there is a feeling that the German boss will still try to expand his roster this summer and Alaba is on the list.
And according to reports icfootballnews learned, the Chelsea board is planning to start talks with Alaba’s agent in the coming weeks and is reportedly ready to pay up to £ 350,000 a week to finalize a transfer deal
However, there have also been reports in the media indicating that Barcelona were the favorites to land a transfer deal for the player as they had already made a contract offer to sign a deal.
Sports reports Barca can only sign him if he cuts his wage demands and they unload a star player.
Barcelona will have to sell a number of players in the transfer window to pay off some of the debt they have amassed during the Covid019 pandemic.
If the reports are true and Chelsea is one of the clubs interested in a deal for Alaba, they would be fools if they didn’t try to get a deal. He’s one of the best players in his position.
And it would add a little more world-class quality to that backline.
