Liverpool are pushing hard to sign Bayern Munich star David Alaba, according to Fabrizio Romano in the Guardian. Romano states that Real Madrid are leading the race to sign the 28-year-old, although Jurgen Klopp’s side aren’t giving up.
Alaba is free to leave the Allianz Arena at the end of the season when his contract expires. Real Madrid have made an initial proposal to the Austria international’s representatives. Liverpool have also made contact with Alaba’s representatives.
Romano adds that there are currently no indications that a move will happen in January, with Alaba happy to see out his contract.
Pep Guardiola once described him as ‘God’. The Manchester City boss piled the significant praise on Alaba while coaching him at Bayern Munich.
The Spaniard said [via Sport1]: “David Alaba is our God! He has already played almost all 10 positions.”
