Rummenigge: Alaba's departure from Bayern Munich shouldn't have happened

Former Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge believes that David Alaba should have stayed at the Bavarians last summer, when the Austria international's contract expired and the player joined Real Madrid on a free transfer.

Alaba has hit the ground running in Spain, as he has managed to instantly adapt to his new surroundings and become the leader of Los Blancos' defence.

"Basically, I think everyone agrees that this exit shouldn't have happened," Rummenigge told Sky90.

"Don't forget, the boy grew up at Bayern Munich. He played there for 13 years and has always been an important part of the Bayern DNA.

"Unfortunately, everything got a bit stuck at some point. Either economically or ambient-wise.

"That is difficult to assess now. The main thing is that, unfortunately, he is no longer there. I think that this departure at least has not been duly compensated.

"I think in Alaba's case we all did everything. Unfortunately, the whole thing got stuck somewhere and he came to the conclusion that he wanted to leave the club because he obviously had a very interesting offer from Real Madrid."

Alaba has become an undisputed starter at Real Madrid, for whom he has scored one goal and registered three assists so far this season.
