Real Madrid are getting closer to signing Bayern Munich’s David Alaba, according to Marca.
The versatile defender is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.
Even though Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are also keeping close tabs on the 28-year-old, the Whites are said to be the favourites for his signature.
One of the main advantages Madrid hold over their rivals for Alaba is Florentino Perez’s perfect relationship with Bayern’s top brass.
Real Madrid view Alaba are a successor to ageing Sergio Ramos as Eder Militao has failed to justify his €50m price tag.
