In a shocking turn of events, Bayern Munich has reportedly withdrawn its latest offer to David Alaba.
Unable to make any progress with the 28-year-old Austria international and his negotiating team, the Bavarians have taken their proposal off of the bargaining table.
Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer explained why the club is taking action.
“We have decided to take the offer completely off the table — that means there is no more offer,” Hainer reportedly said.
A ccording to a report by BR24 Sport, the club had a deadline of October 31st for Alaba to accept the latest proposal.
When Alaba’s team did not accept, Bayern Munich withdrew its offer.
What does this all mean?
Well, this is all part of the negotiating game, but it does not mean anything is necessarily over.
The coming weeks should give both parties an opportunity to re-visit and work through at least one more round of talks. The biggest question will be whether or not the proposal Bayern Munich just withdrew was the club’s best-and-final offer for the Austrian.
If Bayern Munich opts to let Alaba walk, Liverpool, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and FC Barcelona are just some of the clubs rumored to have interest in the versatile defender.
