According to Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich defender David Alaba wants to join Real Madrid.

There has been a verbal agreement in place between Los Blancos and the 28-year-old since January and the two parties are reportedly close to signing a pre-contract agreement on a deal that would see the versatile player join the LaLiga outfit for €12m per season until 2025.

Other top European clubs are trying to convince Alaba to join but Madrid are currently leading the race to sign the Austrian international.
