Real Madrid is hoping to land Bayern Munich veteran defender David Alaba ahead of the next season transfer.
Alaba is in the final year of his contract with the Bundesliga outfit and no agreement has been reached with is current team, Real Madrid is plotting a potential swoop.
The report in Diario AS claimed that Alaba’s agent has opened negotiations with Los Blancos’ directors and he is keen on agreeing on a pre-agreement in January.
Alaba is a versatile player and can operate as a play centre back, left-back, or in his preferred position in central midfield would make him a real asset to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The Austrian defender has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with the German outfit, he won nine Bundesliga titles, six German Cups and two Champions League trophies – admitted that he found out the club had withdrawn their new contract offer ‘on the news’, he would be a good addition to Real Madrid but Real Madrid need to free up space to accommodate the Austrian star with Marcelo likely to leave at the end of the current campaign.
Would Real Madrid turn up for Alaba? or is this just a mere rumour linking the veteran defender to the Spanish capital?
