Bayern München president Herbert Hainer has confirmed that the German champions have withdrawn their contract offer for David Alaba, whose current deal expires next year.
"A new situation has arisen over the weekend. We made David and his agent a very, very good offer some time ago, we negotiated for months and we find the offer very fair and competitive - especially in today's world," Hainer told BR and added:
"We told David's representatives at the last meeting that we wanted to have clarity by the end of October and an answer, because for such an important position and personnel we want to have planning security.
"We heard nothing until yesterday. Our sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, asked the agent again actively, and the answer was that the offer is still unsatisfying and that we should think about it again. As a result, we decided to take the offer completely off the table. That means there is no longer an offer."
According to 'Sport Bild', the Bavarians offered a five-year contract worth up to 16 million euros per year.
The 28-year-old has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester City and Juventus.
