FC Bayern board member Oliver Kahn commented on the situation with the negotiations on the extension of the contract with defender David Alaba.
“At the moment I have no idea how this can happen. We paved the red carpet for David and especially for his agent Pini Zahavi, but they decided not to follow it. Therefore, we turned this path. If Alaba leaves, it's a loss, but we have our limitations. Some agents do not understand that the economic situation for all clubs in the world has become more complicated, ”- quotes Bild as saying Kahn.
Alaba has been playing for Bayern Munich since 2009 and the 28-year-old's contract expires at the end of June 2021. Earlier, the chairman of the board of the Munich club Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that the footballer turned down a generous offer for a new deal in October.
