For almost ten years David Alaba has been a key defender in Bayern Munich and the club hopes he will soon sign a new deal.
In an interview, former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness cautioned, David Alaba should not allow the money to rule his mind.
Alaba with his current agreement set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, has a seasoned agent Pini Zhavi at his side.
That being said, Hoeness pointed out that these negotiations do not step towards a settlement and said Alaba should determine for himself where he would like to spend the next years.
Alaba has a very significant role inBayern
, winning the treble in the 2019-20 season compared to Franz Beckenbauer by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
On Sunday, Hoeness spoke on Sport1's Doublepass show saying: "We want him to stay because he is a great boy and player, I had a coffee with him a few weeks ago, but we haven't come to a conclusion yet." Hoeness added.
"Hansi Flick really wants to keep him." Hoeness said Zahavi is asking for a big sum to reach an agreement, saying he wanted to guarantee Alaba's signature with a double-digit million range.
Hoeness said: "That is not possible at all," The world's best agents can also gain tremendous sums, yet Hoeness, a former Bavarian President, says Alaba needs to reflect on what he wants from his profession.
entered the Academy of Bayern in 2008 and has been awarded nine Bundesliga trophies since then. The likes ofManchester City
are said to be keen on him.
"It's really all about money," said Hoeness. "He's already with the best club in the world, where else should he go? I think he shouldn't let himself be influenced from outside.
"I hope that David and his father understand that a four or five-year contract with Bayern is the best for them and they fit into our salary structure. Then everyone would be happy.
"The last millions that are involved don't make him happier, but they would mess up our salary structure. That's why the club has to be very tough on this."
