David Alaba looks set to join Real Madrid in the coming summer transfer window after reports of contract talk emerges.
The Austrian had joined Bayern Munich in 2010 and since then the 28-year-old has scored 21 goals in 261 appearances for the Bavarians in all competitions.
He played a vital role for them and helped them win many accolades ranging from the Champions League to the Bundesliga.
However, he started to come down the pecking up the order as Alphonso Davies started to impress individuals with his unique performances which made him a favorite to start in the left-back position.
Alaba’s current contract runs till June 2021 and with there being no talks between the club regarding his contract extension it seems like he will be set on leaving as soon as his contract expires.
Real Madrid favorites to grab Alaba’ signature?
Real Madrid have been monitoring the situation closely and they look all set to sign the Austrian left-back.
The Spanish giants are eager to sign another left-back as they need to find a replacement for the aging Marcelo whose contract expires by June 2022 with no contract extensions possible.
Alaba has been on their radar since last summer and they were keen on acquiring him as they would have more options on the left side of the defence.
His versatility helps him adapt to whichever defensive position he is put at which makes him an all-round defender and by Madrid signing him they would have another versatile defender among their ranks.
Madrid who are 1st in La Liga would want to revamp their defense so that they concede fewer goals and signing Alaba would be ideal for them then.
Therefore a move to Madrid can finally be on the cards as he always dreamt of playing for Madrid and Madrid was his favorite team at one time therefore a transfer can take place in the upcoming months.
