And Alaba, 28, is reportedly one of Pep Guardiola’s top targets as part of a defensive overhaul.
Following up on reports from England, Sky Sport confirm City’s interest in Alaba, who is out of contract next year.
Despite his situation, Alaba won’t be cheap and that makes City one of the few clubs able to afford him.
Chelsea are also still in the race, but a move to Stamford Bridge ‘seems much less likely’.
As a result, Alaba reuniting with Guardiola in Manchester is possible with the two enjoying a good relationship.
Bayern are trying hard to extend the Austrian’s contract, eager to hold on to Alaba who has spent eleven seasons in their first team.
According to Sky Sport, a move to City ‘is not out of the question’ but a lot must happen to make it a reality.
