Elite clubs in Europe are linked to Alaba's signature.
Defender David Alaba says he won't be distracted by reports linking him with a move away from Bayern Munich ahead of their Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona.
The versatile Austrian player Alaba has not put pen to paper on a new deal at the Allianz Arena and his current contract with the Bundesliga champions is set to expire in 2021.
Various tabloids continue to link him with several heavyweight clubs in Europe including Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Barcelona, and Real Madrid, but Die Roten believes the -year-old will remain at the club.
"My focus is on the next few weeks and that's why I don't let anything else distract me," Alaba said when asked about his future.
Alaba also acknowledges the UEFA Champions League competition will get more intense.
"I think it will be even more intense in the next few weeks and that's why we want to prepare well in Portugal so that we're ready," he added.
"The anticipation is huge, of course. Barcelona have a good team, we are aware of that, with very good, individual players, but we want to counter that and go to Portugal with confidence. We need each other, [we cannot] hide."
Bayern Munich travel to Lisbon for their Champions League quarter-final against LaLiga giants Barcelona on Friday [August 14th].
