David Alaba’s future at Bayern has been up in the air for quite some time and Liverpool are consistently linked with him.
More recently, another Italian journalist in the form of Romero Agresti has claimed that Liverpool are prepared to agree terms worth 10 million euros a year i.e. about £173,000-a-week to hire the services of the star defender.
We take a look at our highest earners at Anfield and why Alaba would likely reject the contract offer made by the Reds.
Last month, renowned Spanish source AS revealed that the 28-year-old center back demanded a salary of 12 million euros a season but Bayern did not accept his request (£210,000-a-week).
So, on a free transfer, I do not think that Alaba would like to lower his salary demand keeping in view that he will be a wanted man in the summer.
Furthermore, last summer, Liverpool agreed the signing of Thiago Alcantara in a deal worth £27million from the European Champions. Not only that, they made the Spaniard their highest earner by offering a contract worth £200,000-a-week (The Athletic).
So, it will be hugely surprising for David Alaba, who is one of the best defenders in the world, to accept a salary of £173,000-a-week to join the Reds that too on a Bosman.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you updated.
