The Austrian international is expected to earn €12 million per year from a four-year contract with Los Blancos, according to reports.
According to a recent Sky Sport report, the player had rejected the possibility of joining either PSG or Chelsea because he wanted to play in La Liga.
The Austrian international’s contract with Bayern expires this summer, and the only question was where he would play at the end of the season.
Alaba is prized for his versatility, as he can play centrally, on the left side of defense, or in midfield.
