David Alaba's new advisor has caused a stir at Bayern. Pini Zahavi immediately planned a crazy swap with Leroy Sané. The FCB star did not want that at all.
- Despite the corona crisis *, the personnel carousel at Bayern is slowly picking up speed
- Apparently, David Alaba's new advisor was planning a spectacular exchange with Leroy Sané *
- It is questionable whether Pini Zahavi always represents the interests of his clients
Munich - Pinha's "Pini" Zahavi is often referred to as a star consultant in the football industry. He started his first business as a player agent in the late 1970s. In the recent past, Zahavi caused a sensation with Neymar's € 222 million change from Barcelona to Paris.
The fact that the 76-year-old boxed through the most spectacular deal in football history still plays a key role in the search for suitable clients. As with Bayern kicker David Alaba .
