Real Madrid have announced the signing of David Alaba from German champions Bayern Munich.

The versatile Austria international had been available on a free transfer after deciding not to pen a new contract at the Allianz Arena.

“Real Madrid CF has reached an agreement with the player David Alaba, who will remain linked to the club for the next five seasons,” read a statement released by the club on Friday.

“David Alaba will be presented as a new Real Madrid player after the completion of Euro 2021.”

And Los Blancos have won the race for his signature, with Alaba signing a five-year deal at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

The news comes at the end of a busy week for Real, who earlier parted company with coach Zinedine Zidane for the second time in three years.

Alaba, 28, spent 13 years at Bayern and won every major honour available to him there, finishing up with 27 major honours.

He is capable of playing at left-back, centre-back and in midfield.
