Recent reports coming from Saudi Arabia, specifically those linking David Alaba with a move to Al Ittihad, have sent shockwaves through the football community. However, it seems that these reports are, in fact, wide of the mark. The Austrian defender appears set to continue his career at Real Madrid, putting an end to any transfer speculations.
David Alaba’s arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2021 marked a significant acquisition for Los Blancos. The versatile defender, known for his ability to play multiple positions in the backline and his composure on the ball, was seen as a key addition to Real Madrid’s squad. Despite initial struggles adapting to a new league and team, Alaba has gradually settled into life in the Spanish capital.
Recent performances have shown that Alaba is an essential part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans for the upcoming season. The Austrian international’s adaptability in defense and his vision in distributing the ball from the back have proven invaluable for Real Madrid.
