David Alaba 'makes position demand amid Chelsea, Real Madrid links'

Bayern Munich's David Alaba makes it clear to interested clubs that he wants to operate in central midfield next season, according to a report.

David Alaba has reportedly made it clear to interested clubs that he wants to operate in central midfield.

The Austria international will leave Bayern Munich on a free transfer this summer, and a number of clubs, including Chelsea and Real Madrid, have been strongly linked with his services.

Alaba has largely operated as a left-back during his professional career but has mainly featured as a central defender over the last couple of seasons.

The 28-year-old is also capable of playing in central midfield, and according to Le Parisien, Alaba has set his sights on joining a team that intend to use him in the middle of the park.

The report claims that the Austrian will not rule out playing in defence for a proposed new team but would prioritise joining a club that want him to operate as a midfielder.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also both said to be in the hunt for the nine-time Bundesliga winner, who has scored twice and registered two assists in 31 outings for Bayern this season.
