Amid all the chaos today of the proposed (and completely and utterly failed) Super League, a report from Sky broke that David Alaba has agreed to a five-year contract with Real Madrid that would see him join Los Blancos this summer, and remain with the club until 2026.

The same report also stated that the versatile Austrian defender is no longer interested in joining FC Barcelona.

Real Madrid have a history of leaking or announcing deals right after a bad situation, in order to provide fans with a distraction to other problems. This may or may not be that. Either way, it’s not much of a distraction from the real embarrassment the club suffered publicly as the Super League fell apart.

Should Alaba sign, it will be interesting to see what happens with the Sergio Ramos contract negotiations as a domino of this move. Will Ramos and Nacho both stay with the club?
