According to Sky Germany, David Alaba has agreed to join Real Madrid on a five year deal. Whilst there is no official contract yet signed, the move is set to take place when the current season ends.
He has been expected to leave for some time and numerous clubs have made moves to sign him, but it looks as if Real Madrid have won that race and he will join up with Zinedine Zidane’s team.

Alaba has been an integral part of Bayern Munich for over a decade and made over 400 appearances for the Bavarian giants. He has won 26 honours including two Champions Leagues, 2013 and 2020 and nine Bundesliga titles. He has also made over 70 appearances for Austria.
He will join Jerome Boateng and Hansi Flick in leaving the club this summer, but Bayern already have a replacement lined up as Dayot Upamecano is joining from RB Leipzig as confirmed in February.

With Hansi Flick set to leave at the end of the season and likely to take the National team job, all eyes will be on who is going to replace him.
One name strongly linked is RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann and he is likely to be in demand, if available, with Tottenham also said to be interested.
He does have two years left on his contract, but the lure of Bayern Munich may be too strong, but he will have to persuade his club to let him go. He is playing the game so far and has distanced himself from the role.
“There are and were no discussions and no offer. That’s why I don’t know what Bayern’s wish is. I have said I don’t want to start a war with my employers – that’s still the case.”
