We have a new situation this weekend, Heiner said on Sunday at the BR Blickpunkt Sport. Some time ago we made David and his advisor a very good proposal.
During the last meeting we said we want to be clear before the end of October. Until yesterday we heard nothing and contacted his advisor.
The answer was that the offer was still unsatisfactory and that we need to think again. We then decided to withdraw the offer altogether. That means there’s no more offer.
At a press conference on Monday for the Champions League game against Salzburg, Alaba said this was a special situation and added that he had no plans for the future.
I don’t know what the next step is. He said I had no plans for the future. I’m a player who likes to play for Bayern. I’m glad to be part of this team. None of the cops contacted me. It’s hard to say what the future holds.
After our last conversation I told them [at the club] that I couldn’t make a decision in seven days, we played three times in those seven days.
Bavaria was the club I was talking to. I had no contact with other clubs.
I’ve always said I want things to be internal. I was hurt and disappointed that my point of view was presented as it was, it wasn’t true. The salary paid to the media is not true. I was disappointed the hierarchy didn’t remove it.
The Bavarian manager Hansi Flick was also disappointed with the way the situation was resolved.
I’m anything but happy that we’ve talked about it in a week with two tough matches against Salzburg and Dortmund, he said. I want him to stay in Beyrne. He’s the best player, the best man.
I’m sure he’ll continue to devote all his energy to Bavaria.
Alaba played throughout his professional career in Bavaria in Munich, but in the second half of the 2010/11 season he played briefly for TSG Hoffenheim.
The Austrian national player, who can play both centre-back and fullback, has won two Champions League championships with the club, as well as nine league titles and six German Cups. He played 394 times for Bayern, scored 31 goals and made 49 assists more effective.
