Barça is interested in Alaba, Bayern Munich

A week ago, dazzled at the Santiago Bernabeu being instrumental in the classification of Bayern Munich in the final of the Champions League at the expense of Real Madrid.

The performance marked his consecration David Alaba international but ninún case was a surprise to FC Barcelona sports dome, following the Bávaro club's young player in a while. The Austrian international, 19, is one of the names that are underlined in red on the agenda in the face azulgrana next season.

Alaba like much at Barça for their ability to adapt to various positions and status of physical marvel. In recent months there has been uncovered at left back with an extraordinary talent to join the attack with speed and overflow, conditions that agree with what he usually require a FC Barcelona winger in the system.

Previously, he drew high marks as a defensive midfielder thanks to its ideal physical (1.80 high), which makes it ideal for use even as center-back.

This multifunctionality to be several boundaries in which Barça of Titus Vilanova wants strengthened for the coming year Alaba puts in a position to be one of the new faces in the draft 2012-13.

In parallel with discussions with Jordi Alba and its environment to bring back to Valencia to Barça seven years later and the dream of signing Gareth Bale, who is not waiver on the other hand being aware of the difficulty of undertaking a long transfer more expensive, option Alaba emerges strongly because they would simply fill a vacancy.

Several factors also play in favor of Alaba may end up calling in the Camp Nou but also from Munich arrived Alba or Bale. First, the difficulty of Eric Abidal defending Barca again after liver transplantation known he was subjected on 10 April.

Today, Tito Vilanova has only at left back Adriano Correia and Maxwell left in January to Paris Saint Germain. The shortcomings in the core, where only are Carles Puyol, Gerard Piqué and Javier Mascherano recycling, also open the door to Alaba eventually could play there as he has done on occasion at Bayern.

Moreover, the fact that 'Masche' has become a fixed center-back and Sergio Busquets has been without an alter ego to rest him reinforces the candidacy of Alabama. Do not forget that 'Busi' could link Championships and Olympic Games and arrive at the beginning of the season with a lot of wear.

Alaba, however, not played any tournaments because they are not classified Austria. His left-handed performance in midfield also erects a wildcard to play in midfield (at Bayern was the double pivot) or inside-half left position in which Barça may lose Seydou Keita. Alaba is coming like Mali, which, besides the offer of Milan, has a couple of years on the agenda of Bayern.

The price would be adjusted to Austrian reasonable parameters, rarely exceeding 12 to the Munich club has paid for Xherdan Shaquiri, Swiss star Basilea.

In addition, relations between Barça and Bayern heavyweights European Clubs Association, are very good and smooth. The next meeting between Tito Vilanova will be decisive and Andoni Zubizarreta around a final offensive to sign Alaba. (via MD)
