Manchester City fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, linking the club with Bayern Munich star David Alaba.
The Austrian professional has already announced his intention of leaving the German side during the summer transfer window. He has also claimed his preferred destination is Spain. However, according to The Daily Star, Pep Guardiola’s side are looking to make a last effort to sign the defender, who is said to be looking for a salary of £400,000 a week.
A number of City fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the possible transfer.
Am not sure we need this guy at City he is 28yrs now soon hitting 30 that’s why he wants a club with money so that he can pile up some money for himself, trust me he will not be committed in playing for City, he is just looking for money bcos soon he is hitting 30

Almost half a million pounds a week. That’s a crime. Sometimes I want to stop watching football just for this reason.

400k a week..I’d say sign him because his free transfer anyway..his valued at 45M plus.. this will compensate his wages anyway if city were to sign him on a 3 to 4 year contract.

Wouldn’t mind having him plus Zinny and Mendy would learn a lot from him https://t.co/QgJ84wLmfk
