Real Madrid are in talks with minders for Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.
Off contract in June, Alaba could be sold by Bayern in January after they withdrew their new contract offer to the Austria international.
Alaba is taken care of by agent Pini Zahavi and he is in contact with Real Madrid. The defender is keen to make Real aware of his interest in moving to Madrid.
Real are interested, but do not wish to upset Bayern with a hostile move in January, says Marca.
Instead, Real are happy to wait until June before taking on Alaba - unless Bayern agree that he can leave over the New Year.
