The Saudi Arabian football league is once again targeting Real Madrid. David Alaba is not having his best season and mistakes like the one he made last Tuesday against Union Berlin have put him in the spotlight. In addition, the Austrian has an offer from Al-Ittihad worth €20 million that he can accept at any time.
The Real Madrid No. 4 is happy in Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti still considers him the leader of the defense. This is according to Relevo, who also point out that the defender is very popular in the Middle East.
The defender has a tempting offer on the table. It is true that his salary at Real Madrid is not low, but it does not reach the €20 million per season that he would earn at Al-Ittihad. In this way, the central defender could reconsider signing a new contract away from the Santiago Bernabéu.
He is 31 years old and has won absolutely everything. Both at Bayern Munich and at the White team, he has been up to the task and has performed quite well, with the exception of the current season. Whether as a full-back or as a center-back. In fact, at the Allianz Arena he even played as a defensive midfielder.
Ancelotti is still betting on him Despite the fact that he is not at his best at the moment, Carlo Ancelotti is still confident in him. As Relevo points out, the Reggiolo coach considers him the leader of the defense, despite the great level that Antonio Rüdiger is showing.
It will be interesting to see who goes to the bench when Eder Militao returns. The Brazilian, who was injured in the first round, could return to the team dynamic from February. It will be then when Carletto will have to make changes in his defensive line, as long as the former Porto player is available to play.
