The German champions have decided not sell David Alaba in January window, this is according to report from Germany.
The news will come as a huge disappointment to Liverpool, who have have been heavily linked with the Austria star as they seek a cover for thier injured defender Virgil Van Dijk.
The 28-year-old have been a consistent performer in the last decade for the making him one of the best defenders in Europe.
The 28-year-old has made 396 appearances for the bavarians helping them to 17 major trophies including last season’s treble.
But the Austrian defender will be out of contract next summer and will be able to negotiate a pre- contract with other clubs in January time, heightening speculation over his future.
The European champions, will however not allow the versatile defender leave the Allianz Arena in January as the head coach of the club Hansi Flick sees him as a pivotal player in the team, according to Blid.
The report adds that the head coach wants to keep the player for as long as possible, even if that means losing him for free next summer rather than for a fee of “a few million” in January.
It seems more likely that the defender is ban to leave the Bavarians next summer as the sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic claimed the defender turned down multiple generous offers of a extension contract.
Salihamidzic told sky “I can tell you what happened. We negotiated and made David an offer. He refused it. Ten days ago we sat down again and submitted another offer – with a deadline,”
“We informed David and his agent that we would withdraw the offer when the deadline expired. We did that. I spoke to his agent again on Saturday and tried to talk to David again on Sunday because I wanted to know what was going on, but not much happened,”
“I don’t know anymore how we will find a way back together. We made an offer and it was rejected. Now we have to assume that David will leave us.”
