David Alaba remains one of Real Madrid’s key defensive components. He has been a regular fixture in the starting eleven ever since joining the club in 2021.

The Austrian has featured in over 100 competitive matches for Real Madrid, playing a key role in the club’s success over the past two years.

However, even though Alaba has a contract at Real Madrid until 2026, the defender has become a subject of interest for a Saudi Arabian club.

Alaba receives an offer from Al-Ittihad

According to Rodra P (h/t Madrid Zone), David Alaba has become a subject of interest for Saudi Arabian giants Al Ittihad.

Al Ittihad were the same club that signed Karim Benzema in the summer. They are now interested in acquiring the services of Alaba.

The Saud Arabian giants even have a bumper €20 million offer for the Austrian international, as they look to shore up their defensive line.

David Alaba keen on Real Madrid stay

The report, though, suggests that David Alaba has no desire to leave Real Madrid, despite having an offer from Al Ittihad.

This comes in the midst of worries in the Real Madrid camp over Alaba’s recent performances. The defender has made a series of mistakes in recent games, which has cost Real Madrid badly.

This is a worrying sign for Real Madrid, especially given that Alaba is one of the team’s most important defenders, especially in the absence of Eder Militao.

Nevertheless, the Spanish giants would prefer to keep hold of Alaba amid interest from Al Ittihad. The Austrian, after all, is a bonafide leader while his experience and versatility could be vital as Real Madrid look to end the campaign with silverware.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
