Pep Guardiola wants to bring in a new left-back at Manchester City. David Alaba is one of the main targets of the Spanish specialist.
Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has told the club’s management that one of the club’s main goals in the nearest transfer window will be to add a left-back.
According to the Spanish specialist, his team has problems in this position and needs strengthening. According to reports, Guardiola wants to add David Alaba.
The 28-year-old’s contract with Bayern Munich expires in the summer of 2021. The Austrian refused to extend his contract and decided to replace the club.
In such a case, the German club will try to sell Alaba during the nearest transfer window and take the money, because then there will be a chance for David to leave Bayern completely free, as a free agent.
The “Cityzens” like the fact that Alaba is a universal player. So, in times of need, he can play in the center of defense and midfield. The interest of Manchester City is great, but other European grandees also want to add Alaba.
Pep Guardiola and David Alaba have experience of working together. The Spanish specialist was the head coach of Bayern Munich in 2013-2016. So, he knows the Austrian player well.
