Barcelona are also rumoured to be interested in signing Alaba, as new recently re-appointed club president Joan Laporta looks to re-build the club which he oversaw win the treble under Pep Guardiola in 2009.
Signing Alaba would be helpful for Barca who are struggling financially at present due to the economic climate, meaning that they would save themselves on a big transfer fee. It would also give them more pace down the spine of their team, which is essentially what they are lacking, as it is something which PSG took advantage of when they beat Barca 4-1 in the Champions League at the Nou Camp last month.
Alaba’s versatility is a very useful trait, as he can play at left-back, a position which Barca have very little cover for behind Jordi Alba, as well as defensive midfield, which would give the Catalan club a different option.
Barcelona are priced at 4/1 to sign Alaba from Bayern this summer.
