Bayern Munich 'optimistic' about new deal for Man City target Alaba

Bayern Munich are eager to conclude a new contract for Manchester City target David Alaba.

The Austrian has been a mainstay in the German champions' team for the past several seasons.

But he has less than a year left on his deal, and so far negotiations have not gone smoothly.

Bayern would loathe to lose Alaba for a cheap fee this summer or on a free next summer.

However, chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is optimistic at finding a positive end to talks.

"With Alaba, I am cautiously optimistic we will find a solution," Rummenigge told the media on Tuesday.
