Inter Milan interested in David Alaba (Sport1)
The longer Alaba takes to sign a new contract with Bayern Munich, the longer we’ll be plagued by more of these baseless rumors. According to a report by Sport1, Inter Milan is the latest European club to set their sights on Austrian left back David Alaba. Coach Antonio Conte is said to be a fan of the player (who wouldn’t be?).
The interest might not be mutual, however. Alaba wants to win the Champions League, a goal that is still far away for the Nerazzuri, who are still struggling to challenge Juventus in their own back yard. Meanwhile, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have lowered their interest in the Austrian since the coronavirus crisis hit Europe. While Alaba’s agent PIni Zahavi still hasn’t had any concrete talks with the bosses owing to the fact that he can’t enter Europe at the moment, for now it seems likely that the Austrian should stay.
