David Alaba has completed his move to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich on a five-year contract after his contract expired at the German club
Real Madrid have agreed to a five-year contract with Bayern Munich's David Alaba.
Following the expiration of his Bayern Munich contract, Sky in Germany says that he has agreed to a deal with Real that will pay him roughly £10.5 million per year.
On Friday evening, Real Madrid confirmed the signing, stating that Alaba would be introduced after Euro 2020.
Alaba had been at Bayern since 2008 but had turned down three contract extensions, including one worth €15 million per year before talks broke down in November.
He won 10 Bundesliga titles, two Champions Leagues, and six German Cups during his 13 years in Bavaria.
Premier League clubs such as Liverpool and Manchester City were also interested in the Austrian international.
Last summer, City attempted to entice Alaba to Manchester and hoped to include him in the deal that saw Leroy Sane transfer to Bayern Munich.
Inter Milan, PSG, and Juventus are all rumoured to be interested in signing the 28-year-old.
After the announcement, David Alaba said he can't wait to play his first match for Real Madrid.
I can't wait to play my first match in the iconic white jerseys in front of all you fans in Madrid. I'm sure that this journey will be a successful one. Together with all madridistas. VAMOS!— David Alaba (@David_Alaba) May 28, 2021
