Bayern Munich Austrian defender David Alaba has announced he will leave the club at the end of the season 

Though Alaba (28) has not revealed his next destination, several clubs have already been linked with him including Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, reports suggest Alaba is interested in joining Real Madrid in Spain, and has agreed on a four-year deal, according to Marca.

"I have made the decision to leave Bayern at the end of this season and try something new. It obviously wasn't an easy decision - I've been here for 13 years and the club means a lot to me. "I haven't decided where I'm going next. Everyone, absolutely everyone. I'm really thankful for that and that's why it made this such a hard decision. I can call Bayern my family," said Alaba on Tuesday. 

The Austria international has been a first-teamer with Bayern for almost a decade, boasting 9 Bundesliga titles, two Champions League trophies, a FIFA Club World Cup, and the UEFA Super Cup among his huge trophy cabinet.
