Real Madrid are now close to finalizing a deal for David Alaba to leave Bayern Munich according to Marca.
Los Blancos want to get this done as soon as possible to avoid competition for the 28-year-old’s signature later on.
They have reportedly offered him a four-year contract worth a little over €10m (net) per season.
Zinedine Zidane has also apparently given his blessing for the move, with Alaba’s versatility no doubt making him an enticing player for any coach.
Fabrizio Romano is reporting on similar lines as well, albeit with a more cautious tone, as he explains that while Alaba would love to join, a deal hasn’t been completed yet — though Real Madrid are set to push for doing so in the next few days.
Despite the advantageous situation brought on by his impending contract expiry, Chelsea’s interest in Alaba never appeared to be that concrete in the first place, with the Blues looking elsewhere in all likelihood in order to reinforce the backline.
