Bayern want ‘new Beckenbauer’ Alaba to stay for rest of career - Rummenigge

The 28-year-old excelled in the centre of defence towards the end of the season, prompting the chairman to compare him to the Germany legend

Bayern Munich are optimistic they will reach an agreement over a contract extension for David Alaba and that he will ultimately stay with the club for the rest of his career, according to chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Alaba, 28, joined Bayern's academy in 2008 and has since gone on to enjoy a glorious association with Die Roten's senior side, winning a total of nine Bundesliga titles.

Ever since his breakthrough campaign in 2011-12, when he made 30 league appearances, Alaba has rarely struggled to hold down a place in the side.
