Bayern Munich defender David Alaba has announced that he will be leaving the German club at the end of the season. The Austrian player has been rumored to be on Real Madrid’s short list for some time and some reports even suggest that the two sides have reached a verbal agreement.
Still, Alaba said that he has not made a decision about his future.
“I decided to try new things next season and say good-bye to Bayern Munich. It was a difficult decision. I am not going to say anything about my next club, my agents are talking to them and everything will be decided in the future,” said Alaba.
Other clubs like Chelsea or Liverpool are trying to sign Alaba and therefore competing with Real Madrid for the soon-to-be free agent, but it seems that Los Blancos have the edge but are waiting on Ramos’ potential contract extension to announce anything.
