The year is ending and the transfer rumours emerge. Real Madrid has been interested in this defender for a long time and the thought running inside the club is that this is the perfect moment to make a move for him. Zinedine Zidane is aware of this and according to AS, he already asked the board to start talks as soon as possible.
The reason this is the best moment to sign him is because his contract will expire next summer. That means he will be available to negotiate with another club since January 1st. That is why Zidane is so urged, he wants the board to move as fast as possible to convince him of going to Spain before another option comes along.
This player is David Alaba. This bonding that this world class defender has with Bayern Munich will end on June 30th and there is a big opportunity of signing him at no cost. The Austrian has played his whole career as a left back, but in the last years he was moved to play as a center back and was equally great.
Alaba is 28 years old and has been very important in both UEFA Champions Leagues won by Bayern Munich in this decade (2013 and 2020). Having spent 12 years at Munich and seeing he has not renewed so far, Alaba might think this is a good moment for a change and start a new chapter of his career..
