According to recent reports from German media, Alaba once again rejected Bayern’s offer to renew the contract, and negotiations between the two sides were once again shelved. In fact, Bayern has stopped sending offers. Bayern star Effenberg called on players to remain rational and humble, and to keep their feet on the ground during the epidemic.
Speaking of Alaba’s contract renewal, Effenberg said: “What I call on the players is to remain rational and humble. Some top club players are talking about contract renewals, but they still expect or demand some that cannot be satisfied today. We are not talking about 500,000 Euros, 1 million Euros or 3 million Euros. That is a very large sum of money. We must discard this situation. There are still some people who are suffering because of short working hours or being unemployed. They don’t know where the future lies."
Effenberg hopes that the epidemic will make football transfers rational. The legend said: "I hope that the new crown epidemic we are currently caught in will bring a football cleansing and let us stop discussing 80, 100 or 120 million euros A blockbuster transfer."
