Arrived free at Real Madrid after thirteen years spent at Bayern Munich, David Alaba spoke about his new life in Spain and his first steps within the merengue club.

Present at Bayern Munich since 2008, David Alaba made a decision with far-reaching consequences. At the end of his contract with the German club, the Austrian international decided to leave the Bundesliga and turn an important page in his career. Obviously, many teams have approached David Alaba and his entourage during the summer. As announced by exclusively, PSG , FC Barcelona or even Chelsea had explored this track, but the player did not had only one desire: to join Real Madrid . It was good because the merengue club had lost Sergio Ramos and was looking for reinforcements in defense. In the end, the two sides quickly came to an understanding and reached a long-term agreement. Under contract until 2026 with Real Madrid, David Alaba quickly established himself as an indisputable holder under the orders of Carlo Ancelotti and has already managed to be decisive in its new colors. A defender by profession, the Austrian international scored an important goal in the last Clasico against FC Barcelona and allowed his side to pocket all three points. Blossoming in Spain, the player delivered his first months at Casa Blanca.

“At Real, everything is a little bigger”

Fully integrated into the Madrid locker room, David Alaba does not regret his choice to join La Liga. “I felt this special aura and atmosphere from day one. And you notice the history of this club when you walk around the training ground or around town. This club is something very special. Bayern Munich are one of the biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid too. It does not take anything away from the other. However, here at Real, everything is a little bigger, without disrespecting Bayern. Only positive thoughts remain after 13 years. I am incredibly grateful to this club for what it has given me “confided the Austrian international, who had to go through a period of adaptation in his new country of residence.

” I came here to write my own story ”

“My adaptation? Very well, both in sport and in my private life. We already have a house in Madrid and we feel very comfortable. I also feel comfortable in the team and found my way pretty quickly. But the boys also made it very easy for me. I can talk to and understand my classmates, I study a lot and have my language lessons regularly. One of my goals was to learn the language quickly. It's very important here, because of course Spanish is spoken a lot in the locker room and on the pitch. But you also have to know Spanish in the city, because people don't speak much English ”confided David Alaba. While it is unanimous at Real Madrid, the player evoked the comparison with Sergio Ramos, gone to PSG , and his objectives: “The number 4 of Sergio Ramos? I came here to write my own story and play my own game. I get the comparisons every now and then, but I don't care much about them. People accept that now that I'm here and playing my football, I want to write my story with Real. In addition, we are different types of players and it is difficult to compare us ”. Real Madrid may have found their new hero in the person of David Alaba.
