LAZY FAN EXCLUSIVE: Alaba to United?

David Alaba may be on his way to Manchester United, depending on what happens with Juventus left back Alex Sandro. If Sandro moves to Bayern, Alaba will be free to move to the Manchester based club. 

Luke Shaw clearly not in Mourinho’s vision

The Austrian left back may be on his way to Manchester United after Luke Shaw has failed to live up to Jose Mourinho’s expectations. The promising English left back was bought by the club from Southampton back in 2014 but has failed to make an impact for the 13 time Premier League champions.

Issues started soon as Mourinho arrived, with him singling Shaw out and calling him unfit. This did not serve the teenager well in his development at the club. When Shaw was bought by United, he was the most expensive teenager in world football. This would mark a sharp decline for a player who showed so much promise in his early career.

Alaba on the United radar

Alaba has been seen for a long time as one of the best left backs out there. He has represented Austria on 61 occasions already and he’s only 26. If United managed to pull this transfer off it would serve the club well for years to come. Alaba is an attacking left back who has been integral in Bayern’s many Bundesliga victories. David Alaba would be a great addition to a United side which has struggled in recent years to keep up with City’s financial dominance in the league.

If Alex Sandro moves to Bayern Munich, it could serve Manchester United very well as they would have access to one of the best left backs in modern football. Alaba has the ability to perform well both in attack and defence, having scored 16 goals for the German champions.

Alaba’s contract expires in 2021 and with three years left on his contract, could command a hefty fee if he is to move to Mourinho’s United. United will have to move fast if they want the talented Austrian left back as they will have to secure the deal before the August 9th transfer deadline.
