Barcelona ask Bayern's David Alaba to hold on one more season

Barca doesn't forget David Alaba. The azulgrana is set to sign the player of the Bayern Munich and the options to dress him of azulgrana have recovered force in the last weeks. Not for this next season, but for the 2021-2022 window.

As reported by 'Sky Sport', the Catalan club has asked the player, a key player in his team, to stay one more year at Bayern until the end of his contract next summer.

Then, the Barca would sign free to the Austrian, who could benefit from a transfer to cost zero by means of the annual card or by means of a transfer premium.

Alaba, 28, is an institution in the Bavarian set, where it will turn a decade if it also disputes the next season. Now relocated as a centre-back, the versatile Austrian player has also proved successful in midfield and at full-back.

Barca's goal is to give Umtiti and young Ronald Araujo a chance to shine. With Pique and Lenglet as the only central defenders already in place, the club needs to strengthen itself in that position.

Eric Garcia is a priority because he is considered a strategic signing for the present and future, but considering that Pique is already 33 years old, the signing of Alaba, who would arrive at 29, would also make sense.
