David Alaba, the 21-year-old Austrian international and Bayern Munich left back, will be donning Bayern red through 2018.
The young star who already has a treble tucked neatly under his arms and an Austrian Sportsmen of the Year trophy will now get the pay day he deserves. David Alaba has been a virtual lock to get a contract extension as the extensions rumors have swirled in the past few weeks and his addition is a great news for the best team in Europe. As Karl-Heinz Rumenigge put it:
"David came to Bayern at 16 and has developed excellently since then," ... "Today he belongs to the best and most successful full-backs in Europe and we are very pleased to be able to count on his performances in the future."
Here's to another 5 years with the Austrian and 5 more trebles. (Okay, maybe I need to dial back some of those expectations.) 4 more years and 5 more trebles!
