The 25-year-old has developed into one of the world's finest left-backs, and his versatility has also seen him impress in midfield. As such, Alaba had been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena, with his father claiming Madrid were "really interested" in the defender in May.

However, Alaba has brought a swift end to transfer talk, adamant he will still be in Bavaria next term. "I'll stay at Bayern," Alaba told Bild. "I feel very comfortable in Munich, so there's nothing more to say about it."
