Spanish giants Real Madrid are favorites to sign wantaway Bayern Munich star David Alaba according to AS.

For several weeks, Alaba has been linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid, however, Alaba is said to see his future playing for Zinedine Zidane’s side.

The report from AS clarifies Alaba’s salary, which has not been public knowledge until now. The Spanish giants are willing to give Alaba 11 million Euros a year on a four-year deal. Although the 11 million is two less than what the defender wanted, it is believed to be enough to secure his signature.

Premier League clubs in Manchester City and Liverpool have made offers however the wages Alaba is demanding could prove a major stumbling block.

If we take the report at face value, then Alaba’s wage would make him the fourth-highest earner for Madrid behind Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos, and Karim Benzema.

The 11 million euro offer is more than what Bayern Munich have offered for the defender, but it is lower than what some Premier League clubs could pay (like Manchester City) however with the pandemic hitting clubs hard, Alaba might find it difficult to find a better offer out there. Real Madrid does not come calling every day, so Alaba would be inclined to take their offer if he really wants to join the Spanish giants.

After a report like this, if it turns out to be true, then David Alaba’s days at Bayern Munich appeared to be numbered and any potential discussions that could take place, surely will not happen now.
