Real Madrid and Barcelona target is set to shun a move to Camp Nou and embrace a move to Santiago Bernabeu to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo in the next season.

Bayern Munich defender David Alaba claims to team up with Ronaldo outweighs that of joining the Catalan outfit to join Lionel Messi.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are in need of defenders with high quality and Alaba has been identified as a possible target.

Barcelona is struggling for quality depth and needs a high standard player who can always step in to replace Samuel Umtiti or Gerard Pique in the heart of defence when called upon.

Real Madrid want to embark on a major clear out and aside the Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane other options available to Zinedine Zidane are not world class.

Real Madrid had a poor domestic campaign but remains one of the strongest contenders to win the Champions League this season as the Los Blancos seek to retain the title for the third time in a row.

Other reasons why Alaba favoured a move to Real Madrid is the fact that the Bernabeu outfit has the ability to challenge for trophy year in year out and his versatility could earn him more prominent roles in the Spanish capital.

The 25-year-old player has made 189 appearances for the Bavarian outfit and he has scored 15 goals in the process and he has won six Bundesliga titles and a Champions League title.

He would be a great addition to any squad in Europe.
