Sky Sports has reported that his new deal will earn him around £10.5 million (R209 million) a year. 

The new signing revealed during the unveiling that he was honoured to wear the famous white shirt.

"I'm very proud and honoured and grateful to wear this white jersey of Real Madrid. I will give everything for us to be successful together. Hala Madrid!"

"I had a lot of offers but the only one i was interested in was Real Madrid. This is the biggest club in the world" He said.  

Los Blancos' new manager Carlo Ancelotti told Real Madrid TV a few days ago how highly he rates the versatile player.

"Alaba is a complete player, with a lot of quality and tactically intelligent in defence," the Italian tactician said.  

"I put him at centre-back in my last games at Bayern Munich, but sometimes he plays in midfield for Austria and can also play on the left. He is a complete player who is going to do very well this season."
