Real Madrid defender David Alaba is not interested in leaving the club this month for the Saudi Pro League.
The versatile 31-year-old, who can play either as a left-back, center back or in central midfield, was linked with a move to Saudi side Al Ittihad before the Pro League transfer window slams shut later this month.

The Austrian’s current deal in the Spanish capital lasts another three years. Alaba won La Liga and the Champions League in his first season for Los Blancos but the club failed to retain either title in their second term at the club.
According to Romano, Alaba has fallen in love with the club and with life under head coach Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian manager has converted the nine-time Austrian Footballer of the Year into a first-choice central defender forming a formidable partnership with Brazilian Eder Militao.
