Barcelona is prepared to enter the race to sign Real Madrid target David Alaba as the two Spanish giants set to go toe to toe for his signature.
The Bayern Munich defender will be out of contract next summer and the Bundesliga Champions would be forced to sell him this summer.
The report in German tabloid Bild says there is a real chance that the Austrian could leave the Bundesliga champions this summer, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City the favourites to sign him.
Bayern would be prepared to let the 27-year-old go sooner rather than later given they already have a capable replacement in his position in Alphonso Davies.
Alba wants a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona he has ruled out a move to Manchester City, but Real Madrid has three left-backs at the moment, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy and Sergio Reguilon whois on loan at Sevilla.
While Barcelona has the likes of Jordi Alba and Junior Firpo.
Manchester City only has Benjamin Mendy but Alaba fancies a chance to the La Liga giants at the end of the current campaign.
