Former Bavaria president Uli Hoeness speaks again from the sewing box.
After 13 years, David Alaba left Bayern Munich in the summer. The ÖFB star was looking for a new challenge and moved to Real Madrid. The 29-year-old wants to attack again fully with Los Blancos and win the Champions League for the third time.
Obviously, Real was not always Alaba’s first choice. As former Bayern coach Uli Hoeness revealed on the radio, the Austrian had been dreaming of Real Madrid’s arch rival for a long time – Barcelona. “David Alaba once said to me: ‘My dream is still to play in Barcelona.’ Then I said to him: Do you want to negotiate with the president or with the insolvency official?
It is not known if the move to Barcelona failed due to the financial possibilities of the Catalans. Anyway, Alaba pays correctly in Real. During his five years at the Spanish club, the UEFA star earned no less than 115 million euros.
Alaba vs Inter again in action
David Alaba will be available again for Real Madrid in the opening match of the Champions League at Inter Milan on Wednesday night. The Austria international was named to the Madrid squad on Monday after he missed the 5-2 win over Celta Vigo at the weekend due to muscular complaints.
Gareth Bale, who may be absent, according to Spanish media reports, for a few weeks, will not be in Milan. Sports newspaper Marca wrote that the Welshman had injured his thigh muscle and would not reappear until October.
