The Austrian has not yet agreed to a renewal with Bayern Munich, but for the moment he prefers to think about the present, marked by the presence of his team in the Champions League.
David Alaba refuses to be distracted by questions about his future as he focuses on the journey of Bayern Munich to Lisbon to face the quarterfinal duel of the Champions League versus Barcelona.
The versatile Austrian defender has yet to agree to a new contract at the Bavarian club: their link expires next year, leaving his fate unknown.
Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid are among the renowned teams related to signing the footballer.
However, Bayern are increasingly confident in retaining Alaba and the player himself admits that he is focused only on his present and in search of glory on a continental level.
“My focus is (on) the next few weeks and that is why I don’t let anything else distract me,” said the 28-year-old when asked about his future and after having swept the series against Chelsea with a global of 7-1.
Regarding next Friday’s clash against Barça, Alaba considered: “I think it will be even more intense in the coming weeks and that is why we want to prepare well in Portugal to be ready. The preview is huge, of course. Barcelona has a good team, We know that, with very good individual players, but we want to counter that and go to Portugal with confidence. We need each other, we cannot hide. “
