German daily Bild reports that David Alaba will formalize his departure from Bayern Munich on Tuesday. The 28-year-old Austrian defender, who can also play in midfield, is out of contract in Bavaria, where he has held for almost a decade. The Spanish press has long announced Real Madrid as the favorite to recover Alaba. According to Sky Sports, an oral agreement exists between the two parties, with a pre-contract until 2025 “almost ready”. Chelsea, Liverpool, Barça or PSG would be left behind in the case. However, the Madrid daily AS points out that Alaba is not unanimous at Real.

Bayern are unlikely to approach Messi
The future of Lionel Messi has unleashed passions since his desire to leave FC Barcelona last summer. Argentina striker (33) has stayed against his will in Catalonia, where his contract expires next June. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain would be in the starting blocks to recover the six-fold Ballon d’Or. Bayern Munich? Very little for Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “I laughed when I saw Messi’s contract at Barcelona,” said the chairman of the supervisory board of the Bavarian club, in an interview with Corriere della Sera. I can only congratulate him for landing an astronomical contract. But this salary situation must change. ” Bayern should therefore not enter the dance for Messi, whose details of his Barca contract revealed by El Mundo had made a lot of noise.
