Alaba will likely join the squad in training this Wednesday also. The defender will be expected to be a crucial player for coach Carlo Ancelotti this season, even more so if Raphael Varane leaves the club and joins Manchester United this summer.

Alaba’s ability to play multiple positions is valuable, but Ancelotti’s plans with him are not clear at the moment. However, if Varane does leave, Alaba will almost certainly be the team’s left center-back alongside Eder Militao, with Nacho and either Vallejo or Chust behind them in the rotation.
