Real Madrid in pole position to sign soon-to-become free agent David Alaba


Alaba’s contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of this season.

David Alaba‘s next destination is one of the widely spoken topics and it appears Real Madrid looks the likely one.

According to reports, Real Madrid are the frontrunners to sign Alaba, whose contract at Bayern Munich expires this summer.

Alaba was given the permission to negotiate with other clubs after rejecting a new deal, even confirmed by Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

It is also added that Madrid have made a lucrative offer worth 10 million euros a year for the Austrian defender, who is also reportedly interested in representing the Spanish capital club.

Alaba was placed on the radar of a host of Europe’s top clubs once it was revealed that he would be on the transfer exchange. Despite knowing that there will be heavy competition for the reason he can be signed for free, Madrid looks to have edged out in the race.

Manchester United are also one of the clubs credited with an interest in the Bavarians star but said to have complications with his wage demands.

Alaba has established himself as one of the best left-backs over the course while recently showcasing his versatility to play as a ball-playing centre-back, which has happened ever since Hansi Flick took charge as Bayern manager.

Madrid are also dealing with the contract situation of veteran defender Sergio Ramos, who is also free to hold talks with other clubs like Alaba after entering the final six months of his contract. It has also been cited that Alaba can replace the Spanish defender full time if he leaves Bernabeu in the summer.
