Future of Alaba at Bayern still unclear says coach Flick

The future of versatile defender David Alaba at Champions league winners Bayern Munich remains unclear, coach Hansi Flick said on Tuesday, with the Austrian linked with a move to Spain or England.

Alaba’s likely departure has been a problem for several months now, with the 28-year-old’s contract with the German champions running out at the top of the season.

“These are things that are always possible,” Flick said of a possible Alaba move. “I honestly say that I even have not yet heard anything from him.”

The defender has been linked with several English Premier League clubs while Spanish media on Tuesday reported of a possible move to Real Madrid.

“Hope dies last but obviously i do know there’s a particular direction,” Flick said. “That would be a change for the team, no doubt. But what’s important is that he remains as focused as against Freiburg (in the 2-1 win last weekend).”

“We know that in football changes are possible which after a season changes can happen . the sole thing we will do for now’s wait ad see what happens.”

Bayern in November withdrew a offer for Alaba, who has been at the club since 2008, after talks dragged on for months, reportedly over the player’s annual salary.

Alaba has won two Champions League trophies with Bayern also as nine league titles and 6 German Cups.
