David Alaba is reportedly still deliberating over whether to stay at Bayern Munich or join Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The Austria international is out of contract at the Allianz Arena in five months' time and is now able to discuss a transfer with foreign clubs.
Bayern are keen to keep hold of the versatile defender, but he is rumoured to have knocked back a number of offers and talks have now come to a halt.
Madrid are waiting to pounce and have made a lucrative offer of their own, but Sky Sports News claims that Alaba has yet to decide whether to accept it.
The same report suggests that the 28-year-old, who is also believed to be on Pep Guardiola's radar at Manchester City, will wait until April at the earliest before making an announcement on his future.
