Arriving free of any contract at Real Madrid from Bayern Munich, David Alaba opened up about his choice to sign for Merengue while sending a message to the Bavarian side.
The Real Madrid has not been particularly active in the transfer market in the offseason and has only paid out € 30M for the Eduardo Camavinga operation while getting his hands on David Alaba who had free agent status after the expiration of his contract at Bayern Munich . After 11 years at the Bavarian club, Alaba spoke of his departure while explaining the reason for coming to Real Madrid.
“I came here to write my own story”
“Sergio Ramos' number 4? 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 ”. confided David Alaba before indulging in the atmosphere at Real Madrid and on club merengue. “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 ”. the former Bayern Munich defender said in an interview with Kicker.
