Flick: "I haven't heard anything from Alaba, but it's all going in one direction ..."

The Bayern coach, on the presumed departure of the Austrian central defender: "Hope is the last thing to be lost, but for the team it will mean a change."


Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick said he has not heard from defender David Alaba but admitted that he knows everything is going in a certain direction although the hope that the player will remain at the club is the last thing to be lost. "These are things that can always happen, that there are players who leave when their contract ends," Flick said at the Bayern press conference, questioned about information according to which Alaba had already reached an agreement with Real Madrid. "Hope is the last thing that is lost. But naturally I know that things are going in a certain direction, that for the team it will mean a change," he added.

Alaba, after 13 years of defending the Bayern colors, did not reach an agreement for the renewal of his contract with the Bavarian club, which expires at the end of this season, with which he will be able to leave with the letter of freedom and has the Right to negotiate with other clubs now.

The negotiations ended with the withdrawal of the renewal offer by Bayern, which did not want to accept the player's financial demands.

In addition to Real Madrid, there were other clubs interested in Alaba's services such as PSG, Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester City.

In his career with Bayern, the club for which he signed as a youth, Alaba won the Bundesliga 9 times and the Champions League twice, the first time playing as a left back and the second time as a central defender. In addition, he can also play in the midfield.
