Real Madrid Unveils New Signing David Alaba
Real Madrid have unveiled new signing David Alaba after the defender passed his medical, with the Austrian handed Sergio Ramos’ old number four (4) jersey.
Real Madrid announced they had signed Alaba on a free transfer in May with his Bayern Munich contract set to expire. After losing their legendary Spanish captain Sergio Ramos to PSG, Alaba’s arrival will come as a welcome boost.
Alaba, 29, was called to a presentation at the Bernabeu alongside president Florentino Perez — as tradition with all major signings at the club — and admitted his pride to wear the white shirt of Madrid.
“Hello everyone, thank you very much for the warm welcome. It’s a great day in my career,” Alaba said. “I’m very excited for it.”
“I’m very proud and honoured to wear this white jersey of Real Madrid. For sure I will give everything [so] we can be very successful together. Vamos! Hala Madrid!”
Alaba will bring with him a winning mentality having inspired Bayern Munich to 10 Bundesliga triumphs and two Champions League victories.
He will go down as a Bayern icon having played 431 games for the Bavarian outfit since joining from Austria Wien in 2008.
