BILD says Barca are monitoring the Austrian's new contract talks with Bayern.
Currently on a salary of €3 million, Alaba is seeking €8 million-a-year to re-sign. But Bayern are refusing to go higher than €6 million-a-season.
If an agreement cannot be reached, Barca are expected to step in with a bid for the exciting left-back.
