Juventus set to hijack Liverpool move for David Alaba

Juventus are reportedly keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding David Alaba.

The Austria international will see his existing deal with Bayern Munich expire next summer, and as it stands, he would be free to agree a pre-contract with a foreign club in January.

Real Madrid are allegedly in talks with the defender’s agent over a move, while Liverpool and Manchester City have both been credited with an interest.

According to Tuttosport, Juve are also keeping tabs on the situation, and the Old Lady will make a move if Alaba’s contract demands fit into the club’s wage structure.

The 28-year-old, who now largely operates as a central defender, has made nine appearances for treble-winning Bayern during the 2020-21 campaign.

The German club’s head coach Hansi Flick recently said that he was still hopeful the Austrian would sign a new deal at the Allianz Arena.
