Bayern Munich defender David Alaba has revealed that he has yet to decide who he will join when he leaves the Bundesliga champions in the summer.
Numerous reports had suggested that the 28-year-old was destined to move to Real Madrid, but Alaba says he is still weighing up his options.
Manchester City, along with Chelsea and Liverpool are thought to have made lucrative contract offers to Alaba, but City fans on Twitter fear the player may just be looking for a big payday:
Would gladly let him be taken by Real

Some of the figures that have been bandied around in relation to Alaba’s wage demands are astronomical. The Austrian is reportedly holding out for as much as £400,000 a week.
Whether that is, in fact, true, we shall have to wait and see, but if his salary expectations are that high, it may be best for City to avoid the Austrian and move on to other left-back targets.
