Alaba Confirms Bayern Munich Exit

Bayern Munich Defender, David Alaba has announced that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Alaba said on Tuesday that he will be ending his 13 years association with the club after they failed to reach an agreement on a new deal.

“I decided after this season (I want) to do something new, to leave the club,” the 28-year-old told a news conference a day after their 3-3 draw against Arminia Bielefeld in the Bundesliga.

“It was no easy decision because I have been here for 13 years and this club is close to my heart,” he said, adding that he had not decided where he would go next.

Alaba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, Chelsea and other top clubs in Europe.

“The decision of where the trip will go next has not yet been made,” Alaba said. “But I wanted a challenge, to develop as a player on and off the pitch. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

“What will also influence my decision is where can I continue playing successful football,” he said, adding his agent was already in talks with several clubs without providing any further details.

Alaba has won two Champions League titles with Bayern Munich and nine Bundesliga titles.
