Man City, Barcelona keen as Hoeness slams Alaba agent: Greedy piranha

Former Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness has slammed the agent of David Alaba.

With Manchester City and Barcelona watching developments, talks over a new deal for the versatile star have reportedly broken down at various stages.

But Hoeness is pinning the whole ordeal solely on his representative, Pini Zahavi, telling Sport1: "He has a greedy piranha for an agent.

"He lets himself be influenced by him very much. This is really all about the money. He is already at the best club in the world.

"Where else would he go? We had a coffee several times over the past weeks, but because of Zahavi there has not been a result yet."
