DONE DEAL: Bayern Munich ace Alaba agrees Real Madrid pre-contract; passes medical

Real Madrid have clinched the signing of Bayern Munich defender David Alaba to a pre-contract.

Alaba will join the Spanish giants when his contract with the Bavarian club comes to an end on June 30.

He has agreed a four-year deal with a salary close to 11 million euros per year in an offer made at the club's offices in Valdebebas, as MARCA reported on January 2.

The Austrian has been free to negotiate since January 1 and Real Madrid haven't wasted a second in bringing in the European champion to seal a deal as quickly as possible. The player has even already undergone a medical for his future club, reports Marca.

With 408 games, 32 goals and 49 assists helping Bayern to win 25 titles, including two Champions League wins and nine Bundesligas, Alaba is rated as one of the best defenders in Europe.
