David Alaba has confirmed he will leave European Champions Bayern Munich when his contract expires this summer.
The Austria defender has been in talks with the Bavarians for months over a contract extension to his current deal which expires at the end of this season. He joined the German club in 2008.
Alaba went on to score 33 goals in 415 games for Bayern, thereby helping them win the Champions League in 2013 and 2020.
“It was no easy decision because I have been here for 13 years and this club is close to my heart,”
BBC reported that the 28 year old has been linked with several Premier League giants, while Real Madrid are said to have shown interest in getting the multitalented defender, who can play at full-back, centre-back, midfield and on the wing.
Alaba has won nine Bundesliga titles and six German Cups after making his first team debut with Bayern at the age of 17 in February 2010.
Also, he won the Club World Cup for a second time last week, helping Bayern win all six trophies available to them at the same time.
