Ex-Bayern Munich chief slams David Alaba agent a ‘money-grabbing piranha’

David Alaba’s agent has been labelled a “money-grabbing piranha” by former Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness.

The Austrian is in the midst of negotiating a new contract with the European Champions.

Alaba, who has been at the Allianz Arena for the entirety of his career, earns up to €16m a year at Bayern.

But the player’s entourage, led by agent Pini Zahavi, are seeking a five-year deal worth €125m, according to Kicker.

Hoeness, who has now left his post in Munich, is less than impressed with the player’s team influencing proceedings.



David Alaba and his team have been criticised for their handling of negotiations

“Alaba is a very good player and [head coach] Hansi Flick wants him to stay by all means,” he said

“Everyone wants him to stay, but he has a money-grabbing piranha as his agent. And Alaba’s father, who I rate very much, lets himself be influenced by him. I hope that David will come out on top at the end.

“It’s only about the money. He’s already at the best club in the world, where else should he go? It’s his decision, in the end.

“He’s 28 and should not let himself be influenced from the outside.”



Thiago is tipped to join a Premier League side

Alaba has less than 12 months remaining on his deal, which is a similar situation to Thiago.

The Spaniard is poised to leave the club with Liverpool and Manchester United both linked with the Champions League winner.

But Hoeness has accused the Premier League duo of trying to force the German giants into a corner.

He said they are “trying to blackmail us, in the sense that they’re waiting until the last week of the window and then will throw in a cheap offer.”

Before claiming the player “has clearly made an agreement with Liverpool, or Manchester United or both, and both clubs are now bluffing.

“Neither has approached Bayern. That’s not the way to do things as I see it.”
