David Alaba signs 3 year contract extension

New, comments

David Alaba is in all likelihood the best left back in the world. What's less uncertain is that he's going to be Bayern Munich's for the next 5 years as he signs a contract extension.

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!
