David Alaba

Sky claim the 28-year-old David Alaba, who has won the Champions League twice with Bayern, will sign a five-year deal with Real after spending 13 years in Munich.

Alaba played in Tuesday’s 2-0 home win against Leverkusen which leaves Bayern 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Bayern can be crowned Bundesliga champions for the ninth consecutive season at Mainz on Saturday.

Having made 428 appearances for Bayern, Alaba is on the verge of his 10th Bundesliga title with the club world champions.

David Alaba reached an agreement to join Real Madrid this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Alaba will put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the LaLiga side, that will keep him in Spain until the summer of 2026.

The defender refused to sign a contract extension with the Bundesliga champions and is now set to depart after almost 11 years.

The 28-year-old will now leave as a free agent at the end of this season.

Barcelona were also in the running to sign Alaba, but the Austrian has decided to sign for their eternal rivals instead.
