Marca has confirmed that Real Madrid and David Alaba have found an agreement.
Both parties have been discussing pre-contractual terms for a while now and it seems a switch to Madrid is waiting.
Alaba’s contract with Bayern Munich is up in six months, which means he can agree terms with outside parties. The Austrian wanted newer opportunities after spending over a decade with the Bavarians. His dream destination was Real but there were plenty of opportunities coming in from England and Spain.
Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted the task to keep Alaba at the club had failed at the end of November. He was quoted saying, “We had many conversations with his agent. There was a final meeting and a proposal with an October deadline. Our offer was not accepted and our president withdrew it.”
The report states that Alaba will sign a four-year deal which is ideal in the current scenario. He is 28 years old and at the peak of his powers. If he jots down an important spot at Real over the new few years, he could even extend his stay at the Spanish capital beyond 2025.
