 As reported by Spanish sport outlet Marca, Real Madrid presented David Alaba to the press today.

Accompanied by his family, Alaba spoke about this new adventure at Real Madrid: "I didn't come to Real to be compared to others. I am Alaba and want to keep being Alaba. What I will bring to this club is my capabilities as a footballer and my mental strength. Just being myself....(Coming to Madrid) is a dream come true, they are the greatest team in the World and being here fills me with pride. I just want to put the jersey on and play." 

When asked about where he would play, he answered: "I am very versatile, I can play multiple positions on the pitch and I'll go wherever the manager needs me." He added, on why he chose Real over others: "I decided to take this step in my career. Of course there were other offers, but Madrid was the only option for me. This is a drema come true, the best club in the World and the challenge I was looking for".

Alaba signed a 5-year contract worth around 10.5M GBP per season, joining on a free transfer from Bayern Munchen.
