Manchester United look set to miss out on the signing of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane this summer, according to reports. It is no longer news that the Red Devils are interested in signing a defender this summer and have been linked to several targets even before the end of last season. However, after reports suggested that they have reached a decision to snap up Varane from Real Madrid, it has been discovered that the Red Devils are not the only ones who want to sign the Frenchman.
Bayern Munich defender David Alaba has acknowledged that he could pursue a fresh challenge away from the Bundesliga outfit in the future with Spain and England being suitable destinations for him. The Austria international has spent his entire career with the Bavarian giants and has racked nearly 350 appearances for the club across all competitions.
Speaking to SportBild, Alaba said that he is currently comfortable at the Munich giants where he has been the undisputed choice on the left side of the defence. However, he added that he does not see himself spending the rest of his career with the German champions, he told: “I can imagine trying something else, but I really feel very comfortable at Bayern. Every year there are new challenges and new objectives and the pressure will always be there. I’m happy in Munich. But of course, I can imagine seeing something else [in the future].”
