Separating from Bayern Munich is a difficult task for David Alaba, who has played for the team for 13 years.
defender David Alaba has confirmed that he will leave the club next summer and is ready to join another team as a free agent.
Alaba, 28, who spent 13 years in Bavaria, is looking for a new challenge and has been close to leaving the club. Many clubs, including Real Madrid and Chelsea, want to sign him, and rumors about him joining the Spanish capital are stronger than other clubs. Now, in an interview with theofficial website of Bayern Munich
, he confirmed that it is difficult for him to be separated from the Bavarians.
"It’s always difficult when something comes to an end and it’s no secret that I’ve always really felt at home here.
"Obviously, I’m leaving FC Bayern with a tear in my eye but also looking forward to my future at the same time.
"It wasn’t a decision against the club, but I decided I’d like to do something new and take another step forward.
"To grow, you have to leave your 'comfort zone' – and I deliberately put that word in quotation marks because it could possibly be misunderstood.
"At FC Bayern, the expectations on the pitch are always extreme from the management, in the dressing room or from yourself.
"I think that perhaps you have to go into the unknown to be able to mature again."
