Spanish club Real Madrid have reached an agreement to sign Bayern Munich David Alaba in the transfer window.
Alaba agreed a four-year deal with a salary close to 11 million euros per year in an offer made at the club’s offices in Valdebebas, as MARCA reported on January 2.
He will join Los Blancos at the end of his contract with Bayern Munich on June 30.
The Austria international has already undergone a medical, having been free to negotiate with the La Liga champions since January 1.
The 28-year-old was chased by some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea all registering an interest with agent Pini Zahavi.
Alaba had already shown his interest in playing in LaLiga Santander and after 10 seasons with Bayern, was not afraid to run down his contract in Germany.
Bayern made three offers to Alaba in the past few months, but club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted in November that talks were over.
“We had a lot of conversations with his agent, there was a final meeting and a proposal with a deadline in October, our offer wasn’t accepted and our president withdrew it,” Rummenigge explained.
“We did all we could to reach an agreement, he just had to accept, but it didn’t work out.”
Since a new deal was not agreed at Bayern, Alaba was free to negotiate with other clubs.
