has completed his transfer to

Bayern Munich

before he joined his national team for Euro 2020.

The Austrian international will be a prized asset to

Carlo Ancelotti

’s team for the next campaign as he is capable of playing in defence, midfield and left back.

The club manager has not revealed where he plans to play the 28-year-old notwithstanding rumors raising surrounding him replacing Sergio Ramos at centre-back.

However, with Ancelotti’s plans unknown, Alaba has revealed that he would be prepared to play wherever the Italian sees fit.

For a long time I played at left back for Bayern, but lately I have played at centre back”,

as per reports from



“Before that I played a few times in midfield. But I am happy to play where I can help the team the most.”

“I think that in that in the Libero position you have a lot of influence on the game in both directions, in attack and defence.

“You have a different perspective of the game and a lot of the ball, you can set the pace of the game and influence it.”

He has made 50 appearances for club and country in the last 12 months, playing mostly in central defence, with 31 matches in that role.

Ancelotti is speculated to be considering that role along with a No.6 position for Alaba for the 2021-22 season.
