Chelsea transfer blow as David Alaba's agent 'approaches' Real Madrid over free move from Bayern at end of season

DAVID ALABA'S agent has reportedly approached Real Madrid over a potential switch.

The 28-year-old is set to leave Bayern Munich after failing to agree terms on a new contract.

According to Marca, the Austrian is most likely to make a move to the Bernabeu.

His agent, Pini Zahavi, has made Madrid aware of Alaba's situation in Germany.

Zahavi is believed to have a 'good relationship' with Zinedine Zidane's side.

But Madrid are not the only club interested in signing the 28-year-old.

Chelsea are one of four teams that have been heavily linked to Alaba.

The 28-year-old's wage demands would make him the highest-paid player at Stamford Bridge.

German publication Bild report on the Austrian star wants £350,000-a-week.

As well as Madrid and Chelsea, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen.

Teams are free to begin negotiations with Alaba from January 1 as his Bayern contract expires in June. 

He will be available on a free transfer, meaning he could drive a hard bargain when it comes to personal terms.

Alaba, who has 75 caps for Austria, has been with Bayern since he joined from Austria Vienna in 2008.
