Real had had Alaba in their sights for some time, but still had to fear last minute attempts from other clubs. Liverpool, among others, would like to hijack the deal, but it does not come to that: Alaba is round with Real Madrid and will sign soon. According to MARCA there is a four-year contract ready for him. He is reportedly going to earn eleven million euros per season.
Alaba’s contract with Bayern Munich will run until the end of the season. Players are allowed to talk to other clubs six months before the end of their contract. Real has made good use of it. Besides Liverpool, according to BRAND Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are also interested in Alaba.
Bayern wanted to go far to renew Alaba’s contract, but never managed to reach an agreement with the player.
