David Alaba Perfect For Real Madrid

David Alaba Perfect For Real Madrid


Real Madrid’s interest in David Alaba seems fairly obvious but dig a little deeper and it’s clear that the Bayern Munich star could be a big hit at the Bernabeu. The Swiss sensation can play in a multitude of positions and is equally proficient in each of them. He has athleticism, physical presence and good technique on the ball. In short, he’s a ‘Real Madrid’ player.

Born in Vienna, he began his career with SV Aspern and was quickly drafted into the youth setup at FK Austria Wien. Despite never making a first team appearance, he was spotted by Bayern Munich’s talent scouts and moved to the German side in 2008. A year later he became the youngest ever player to represent the Austrian national team at just 17. In 2010 he made his first team debut for Bayern, setting up Franck Ribery within a minute of coming off the bench. After a loan spell at TSG Hoffenheim in 2011, he was ever-present in the first team squad at the Allianz Arena.

Despite being just 24 years of age, Alaba has already collected 10 major honours in his career. He has helped Bayern to win 5 BundesLiga titles, 4 German Cups and the Champions League. His winning mentality would undoubtedly be an asset to Real Madrid and there are no signs that he has reached the ceiling of his potential.

Alaba is ostensibly a defender but can be utilised in a number of roles. He can be deployed in central midfield, central defence, right and left wing, or even at left-back. He is comfortable at defending but has the ability to charge forward into space and cause opposing teams real problems. His passing is also brilliant both at short and long range and he has a penchant for switching the play to make chances for his teammates. As if all this wasn’t enough, he is also a good free-kick taker and has deputised for Arjen Robben on numerous occasions.

Alaba combines technique, intelligence and power in a way that only a handful of other players are capable of. He is energetic, enthusiastic and a proven winner, so the prospect of seeing him in a Real Madrid shirt is mouth watering to say the least.


  1. Comment:it will be a crazy addition when we have marcelo in that position,,we should have just sign a back up for marcelo,,,in term of transfer,,perez doesn’t know where real madrid really need addition unlike Barcelona that always buy what suit their pattern of play…Zidane and perez should wake up before it’s too late for them…instead of them to give PSG an option on verrati in Jesse transfer,,but they were busy monitoring Pogba transfer..
