Sport Bild claims Bayern München don't want to cash in on David Alaba in January even though they risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Bayern München have no intentions of letting David Alaba go in January, according to Sport Bild.

The Austrian international doesn't seem too keen on leaving Bayern in the middle of the season either.

"David is not considering other clubs at this time. He is concentrating 100 percent on Bayern," a source close to Alaba told Sky Germany a few days ago.

Alaba is out of contract next summer and has been stalling on a contract extension with the Bavarians.

At the beginning of November, FC Bayern president Herbert Hainer announced that the German champions have withdrawn their contract offer for Alaba after failing to reach an agreement with the 28-year-old before the end of October.

FC Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has since said the door is still 'open a crack' for Alaba to remain at Allianz Arena, but should the parties ultimately fail to reach an agreement, it seems he will leave on a free transfer.

According to Sport Bild, RB Leipzig's Lukas Klostermann is seen as a possible replacement for the 28-year-old.

Klostermann, who is under contract with RB Leipzig until 2024, would cost at least €40 million, as per the German media outlet.
