Browsing: DAVID ALABA

Baumgartner knocked in a corner from Austria captain David Alaba in the 21st minute, only four minutes after colliding head-to-head with Illia Zabarnyi on the other end of the field.

The versatile 28-year-old had been linked with Europe’s top clubs after announcing in February he would leave Bayern at the end of his contract this summer, having turned down several offers of new terms.

The 28-year-old has already confirmed that he will be leaving the German giants at the end of the season, ending a 13-year stay at the Allianz Arena, which has included two Champions League triumphs.

Alaba’s contract at the Allianz Arena is due to expire this summer, and the versatile defender is widely expected to leave the European champions in search of pastures new.

The versatile Austrian international has a contract with the German champions until 2021 and given he’s yet to discuss a renewal, a number of sides are interested in signing him this summer.

The Blues is free to spend again in January after seeing a transfer ban lifted, and getting a new left-back on board is a priority for manager Frank Lampard.
