Chelsea to seal £350,000-a-week for a world-class player from Bundesliga

If the deal goes through, it will be most expensive player to join Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge well ahead of other players of the Blues.

David Alaba is set to become Chelsea’s best-paid player if he completes a reported £350,000-a-week switch from Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga giants have ended contract negotiations with the 28-year-old, ahead of his deal expiring in June.

Any club will be able to make their own offer and pre-agree a summer switch when the January transfer window opens.

And Chelsea are one of four clubs reportedly keen on such a deal.

German publication Bild report on the Austrian’s demands of £350,000-a-week.

Such a high pay packet would comfortably make him Chelsea’s highest earner.

Kai Havertz currently holds the title with a £310,000-a-week deal signed in the summer, ahead of Timo Werner’s £270,000-a-week salary.

N’Golo Kante and Kepa Arrizabalaga earn £150,000 with Christian Pulisic back on £145,000.

Should Chelsea want to see through their reported interest in Alaba, they will have to discuss the matter with agent Pini Zahavi.

The veteran negotiator is said to have a good relationship with the Blues.
