Spanish League News: After a long wait, Real Madrid have finally introduced their first signing. He is the all-rounder of David Alaba.
Los Blancos announced that Alaba had successfully carried out medical tests at the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Moraleja, prior to the introduction.
“I am very proud and honored and grateful to be able to wear this white Real Madrid jersey. I will give everything for us to be successful together. Hala Madrid!” he said.
Number 4 was vacant after Sergio Ramos left the Santiago Bernabeu. Therefore, Alaba will be the player to wear Sergio Ramos’ jersey number for the last 16 years.
Rules in Spanish football force clubs to register their players with numbers 1 through 25 unless they are also registered with Castilla, so one just has to take number 4 and become Ramos’ successor.
Alaba’s experience and resume make her a good candidate for the number, even though in the end it’s just a number. The 29-year-old defender showed his character and personality by accepting this challenge.
It is unclear whether Alaba will play most of his minutes at centre-back. Real Madrid are expected to sell Raphael Varane to Manchester United in the next few days and Alaba could be his replacement in the lineup, although he could also play at left-back and even as a midfielder if needed.
As previously reported, Los Blancos managed to sign Alaba on a free transfer after his contract with Bayern Munich ended.
