Man Utd monitor David Alaba
Manchester United have been monitoring the performances of Bayern Munich star David Alaba with a view to a future move for his services. The Austrian international was a transfer target for Real Madrid in the summer.
According to The Mirror, manager Jose Mourinho had sent scouts to keep a close track on the left-back during the international break.
Alaba, who is also adept playing in the holding midfield position, is being lined up a possible replacement for Morgan Schneiderlin.
The 24-year-old has been a mainstay at Bayern Munich over the years, and it is believed that United would have to cough up a £60m plus fee, if they are to pursue his signature next summer.
European champions Real Madrid could also return for the versatile player, should their transfer ban be lifted.
