Spanish giants Real Madrid are set to win another race for one of the best players in the world in David Alaba from Bayern Munich.
As widely covered worldwide this season, Alaba had a dramatic fallout with Bayern over a new contract, so disastrous that the 28-year-old Austrian central defender is now reportedly on his way to the Santiago Bernabéu as a free agent.
According to Marca, as reported by Fabrizio Romano, the deal will be completed in due course.
