Manchester City have actually supposedly been handed a boost in their pursuit of David Alaba after his talks with present club Bayern Munich broke down.

The 28- year-old came through the ranks at Bayern and has been a key part of their side since getting into the first team a years ago, however his future in Munich has enter question recently.

Alaba’s contract at the Allianz Arena ends next summer and both Man City and Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be keen on prising him far from the German giants.

Bild reports that talks over a contract extension have actually now reached a deadlock over wage needs, with Bayern reluctant to see their cumulative wage costs rise above EUR20 m (₤181 m).

Need to they stop working to make an advancement in settlements over the coming weeks then Bayern might be pushed into cashing in on the full-back this summer, instead of danger losing him on a complimentary transfer next year.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola dealt with Alaba during his time at Bayern and is understood to be in the market for a new left-back this summer, having actually been skeptical by Benjamin Mendy‘s injury record up until now.

Alaba is also efficient in playing in main defence or in defensive midfield, which flexibility is believed to be a key factor behind City’s interest.

The Austria international has made 38 appearances for Bayern throughout all competitions this season and 382 in overall since breaking into the team.
