Revealed!! David Alaba demands £400,000-a-week to sign for Chelsea



Bayern Munich defender David Alaba wants around £20million-a-year in order to consider a move to Chelsea this summer.

The Austrian has six months to run on his contract with the Bundesliga giants and he’s intimated his desire to leave the Allianz Arena, who he joined in 2009 at the age of 16.

The defender is one of the most decorated players in world football and given he’s set to leave on a free transfer, Alaba’s representatives clearly feel he is entitled to set high wage demands. Chelsea are one of a number of interested parties in Alaba, with Real Madrid leading the way for his signature.

Tuchel is keen on signing a defender (Picture: Getty) But the Blues are unlikely to challenge Real for the Austria captain until he lowers his wage demands as the Telegraph claim he has asked for close to £400,000-a-week in order to move to west London.

That would make Alaba Chelsea’s highest paid player by a clear distance, with N’Golo Kante the current top earner on around £295,000-a-week. Alaba plays central midfield for Austria but he’s transitioned from a left-back to a centre-back for Bayern in recent years.

Chelsea signed Thiago Silva on a free transfer last summer and though the Brazilian has impressed at Stamford Bridge, Alaba is just 28 and would solve a long-term problem at the club. Silva, 36, signed a one-year deal when he joined from Paris Saint-Germain but a clause in his contract allows the Brazil international to trigger another 12 months should he continue to feel up to the task.

At this moment in time and barring the suffering of a long-term injury, Silva is keen to stay at Stamford Bridge in what is a big boost to Tuchel.
