According to reports, Manchester United transfer target David Alaba prefers a free transfer to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in January rather than move to Old Trafford.

The Austrian’s contract runs out at the end of this season and talks over a move to the Santiago Bernabeu are expected to commence in January.

The player is also said to be attracting interests from the likes of Juventus, Manchester City and Barcelona who are all prepared to offer him big money move.

Report from Marca claim that Real Madrid are firm favourites and are ready to sign the player a pre-contract with him.
