He regrets this decision!
In this summer of transfers, everything is going smoothly for Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic (45). With Sadio Mane (30) and Matthijs de Ligt (22), he committed two top stars and received up to 50 million euros for Robert Lewandowski (33) despite a year-long contract.
But Brazzo isn’t letting go of a negotiation from the past!
About a year and a half ago, David Alaba (30) announced his departure from Munich. Salihamidzic had previously negotiated with the Austrian and his advisors for a long time, but were unable to reach an agreement on an extension.
Why is she catching him?!
Defender with insane blackout
In an interview with “Zeit-Magazin”, Salihamidzic now admits that Bayern made a mistake during the negotiations!
The Bayern boss: “From our point of view, we offered him a lot of money. There was a meeting with David’s advisors and we gave the Alaba side an ultimatum: by that time, we said, David had to make a decision.”
And further: “From today’s perspective, I would say: It might not have been necessary to set a deadline for a player as deserving as David was.”
Alaba then moved to Real Madrid on a free transfer last summer and won the Spanish championship and the Champions League with the royal team in his first season.
In hindsight, he is unlikely to have regretted the Bayern deadline…
