He has been linked with a host of clubs and has reportedly been close to accepting an offer from Real Madrid, but the saga continues.
According to the paper version of Sport Bild (as cited by Inside Futbol), Alaba is considering turning down the offer from Real Madrid in favour of a Premier League club, with Chelsea and Manchester City being mentioned as a potential destination.
There is no rush in this one though as I say, he is contracted until the summer so there is a good few months to decide his next move yet.
What is clear is that Chelsea remain in the hunt for the versatile defender.
