Bayern Munich full-back David Alaba admits he will look for a new challenge in the future.

Major clubs across Europe may have been placed on high alert after David Alaba suggested he would be open to a move away from Bayern Munich.

Reports from Spain have claimed that Barcelona are long-term admirers of the 25-year-old Austrian and the La Liga leaders have been handed a huge boost after he revealed that he has not committed his long-term future to Bayern. But the Catalans have to fight off Premier League big boys Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City

Alaba said: “I am aware that one day I will have to make a decision. I feel good here, but also it’s true that I imagine myself taking a different path, taking a step forward or looking for a new challenge.

“It’s an exit that I leave open now. At the moment, I will focus on the goals that I have set for this season. I have goals and I am going to fight for them.

“What am I going to do in the future? It’s something that I ask myself, since I do not see myself here for another five years. In football everything happens very quickly and I know that there will come a time to make a decision. However, for now I only set myself short-term goals.”

Alaba is under contract at Bayern until 2021.
