A Premier League move remains under consideration by wantaway Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.
The Athletic reported that Alaba is likely to leave Bayern at the end of the season, with Liverpool and Manchester United among the clubs interested.
The versatile defender’s current deal with the reigning European champions expires next summer.
He will neither be signing a new contract at Bayern Munich, nor agree to be sold next month, and that makes him a highly sought-after free agent.
The Austrian’s long-term preference was Spain but there is also said to be strong interest from the likes of United, Manchester City and Liverpool.
