Bayern Munich defender David Alaba is about to move to Real Madrid

, according to Marca reports

The two-time Champions League winning contract in the Allianz Arena expires at the end of the season, which means that since 2021 he has been able to officially discuss the contractual terms with foreign clubs

Getting one of the best defenders in the world on a Bosman deal is obviously pretty good business, and it’s not surprising that several clubs have been attributed an interest in Alaba – Marca previously had Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea called as potential suitor

In fact, Alaba has an impressive mix of defensive anticipation, natural athleticism and quality of possession that has enabled him to assert himself in a variety of different positions throughout his Bayern career – from right midfielder to central defender

He works either as a left-back or a center-back these days and that seems to be one of the key factors in Real Madrid’s interests Marca notes that he can compete with Raphael Varane and eventually replace Sergio Ramos. The 34-year-old’s contract also expires at the end of the season

Real Madrid have reportedly been on a € 10m per season offer for four years and Alaba are reportedly incredibly keen to join the Bernabeu team and start their trade in Spain

Los Blancos made its intention to sign Alaba clear after the 28-year-old’s talks about extending his contract with Bayern Munich in late 2020 collapsed

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had told reporters: “We had a lot of talks, but we wanted answers from him by the end of October. This did not happen and I do not know whether we will return to the negotiations

“I want to make it clear that our offer showed exactly how much we appreciate it, but he didn’t take it”

Your offer should be 200Worth € 000 a week but without making any progress, Real Madrid should now benefit from Alaba’s services instead

Simple enough, Alaba is one of the most classic defensive players, and Real Madrid are ready to bring him on for a free transfer at the age of 28, just as he is at his peak in football

It’s great business on the Bernabeu side, if not exactly inspired or wise – any big club with enough financial resources to offer them a handsome salary certainly had an interest in doing so before the watershed to do the contract

Real Madrid appear to have won the race and Alaba will be a tremendous asset to them. It has long been debated how exactly Los Blancos can replace Ramos but Alaba is capable of using that cloak as an extremely talented defender enormous experience to take over

While Ramos stays in the meantime, the fact that Alaba can also act as a left-back should ensure that Zinedine Zidane always has the option to poke him in the side
