Basically, Spanish law provides that employees must be able to withdraw from an employment relationship at any time. As a result, clubs usually set extremely high transfer fees to deter the competition. It’s no different with David Alaba either. According to the Spanish newspaper “ABC”, a potential buyer would have to put a whopping 850 million euros on the table for the ÖFB team player. Alaba has a contract with the “royal” until June 30, 2026.
But that doesn’t make him the most expensive player at Real. A transfer fee of one billion euros has been set for Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. Incidentally, this transfer fee also applies to Ansu Fati from FC Barcelona. In any case, David Alaba seems to have arrived at Real Madrid. First, he contributed a goal to Real’s 2-1 win in El Clasico against FC Barcelona. In the 2-1 home win against Rayo Vallecano, Alaba once again shone as an assistant.
