Bayern Munich defender David Alaba was heavily linked to FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in the January transfer window but due to financial crisis at Camp Nou, Barcelona backed out of the deal. Real Madrid also refuse to make contact due to the player's wage demand.
Reports reaching Sportidia indicates the player is ready to lower his demands to seal a move to Stamford Bridge. Alaba is looking forward to be handed €400,000 a week wages at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea are not willing match that wages. The deal has stalled due to some minor issues.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking to extend the contract of veteran defender Thiago Silva. Manager Thomas Tuchel is convinced about the defender and wants the club to extend his contract as soon as possible.
Chelsea are planning to offer Atletico Madrid player plus cash deal for goalkeeper Jan Oblak. It is believed that Atletico will only accept a deal in the region of€180 million and Chelsea are looking to reduce that amount by adding out of favor Kepa to the deal.
