It is quite obvious that David Alaba cannot replace Sergio Ramos or even replicate the same presence that Ramos had in the team. In fact, there is no defender in the world that could fill in the shoes of Sergio Ramos at Real Madrid, and finding the exact same replica is not what the club is after. Having said that, the addition of David Alaba could prove to be fruitful to the club given his versatility and the fact that Real can sign him on a free transfer.

The Austrian’s contract with Bayern Munich is set to expire next June and the European champions will not be renewing terms with the star player after a dispute over proposed wages. The Bavarian giants will try to cash in on Alaba this winter, however, most clubs are not in the best financial position as of now to compete in a bidding war for David Alaba.

In fact, many rumours point towards the Bernabeu as a possible destination for Alaba. The 28-year-old will be entering the prime years of his career and would certainly be massive addition alongside Raphael Varane.
