Man United Enter The Battle To Sign 28-Year-Old Austrian Left-Back
The Red Devils and Blues are reportedly among the clubs eyeing a transfer swoop for Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba this summer. The 28-year-old left-back is no longer a guaranteed starter at the Allianz Arena and is seemingly considering moving on this summer as a long list of top clubs show an interest in his services.

David has been a top performer for the Bavarians down the years, so it’s a little shock to see him being linked with the likes of Red Devils and Blues, while Lionel Messi wanting him at Barca. Alaba can fill in a variety of roles, with centre-back or left-back probably his best positions, though he’s also played defensive midfield in the past.
Blaugrana could do with bolstering in back-line after a frustrating campaign and with Gerard Pique ageing and past his best, while Man United and Chelsea also have problems in that place.
Red Devils are not yet guaranteed a top-four spot and will no doubt feel Maguire needs a better partner alongside him after an up-and-down first campaign at Theatre of Dreams.
Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones don’t seem the most reliable options to play alongside Harry, and Austria international would surely be an upgrade with the quality and experience he brings. Man United Enter The Battle To Sign 28-Year-Old Austrian Left-Back
Blues, meanwhile, also face a nervy end to the campaign in terms of clinching a top-four place, with the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen not looking good enough for most of this season as Chelsea have conceded 49 goals, giving them the worst defensive record of any team currently in the top half of the table.
