It is no secret that Bayern Munich star David Alaba will be spending the next portion of his career in La Liga with Real Madrid.

Rumors have floated for months that have closely linked the Austria international with Los Blancos. Now it appears that the final stages of a deal are being completed as Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the “first part of the contracts” with Madrid have been signed by Alaba:

As Romano stated, Real Madrid will not make the signing official under the season ends. Alaba’s final game as a member of Bayern Munich will occur on Saturday against FC Augsburg.

It will be fascinating to see how Alaba integrates into the Real Madrid squad. Assuming Zinedine Zidane is still the manager, Alaba could slot in at center-back, left-back, or as a defensive midfielder.

Alaba, who has had a not-so-secret desire to play as a midfielder, has been getting the opportunity of late under Hansi Flick.
