While David Alaba has battled to find his form on the pitch, his future on the Bayern Munich roster appears bleaker by the day.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge gave an update on Alaba’s contract situation and things do not sound promising.

“Bayern did everything we could to try and reach an agreement,” Rummenigge said (as captured by the Daily Mail). “We had a lot of conversations, but we wanted answers from him by the end of October. This didn’t happen and I don’t know if we’ll return to the negotiations.”

Rummenigge wants it to be known that he feels that the club has done everything possible to make it work with Alaba.

“What I want to be clear about is that our offer showed exactly how much we value him, but he didn’t accept it,” said Rummenigge.

When asked about a potential move to Real Madrid for Alaba, Rummenigge brushed off the speculation, but did not sound too optimistic about the chances of the two parties getting together.

“I don’t know anything about the Real Madrid rumors,” Rummenigge said. “He’s free to speak to whoever he wants from January 1.”

The Daily Mail also listed Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain as prime contenders to sign Alaba.
