A report from Sky Sport and followed by Diario AS claims the Austrian international has rejected a contract offer from Paris Saint-Germain and also will not be joining Chelsea, while he is only interested in a move to Spain.
Update Alaba: He has decided to decline the huge offer from Paris Saint-Germain, according to Sky sources. He also said no to Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea, who tried to convince him recently. His priority remains Spain: @realmadrid or @FCBarcelona #TransferUpdate @Sky_Marc pic.twitter.com/3cxS5B21rf

Alaba is out of contract at Bayern this summer and will be leaving as a free agent, and Barcelona are another potential destination.
However, both of the Spanish giants may struggle to make room on their wage bill for the arrival of the versatile star.
Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed in February that there is a verbal agreement in place for him to join Madrid in the summer, but no contract has yet been signed.
The Austrian is highly sought after due to his versatility in between defence and midfield, with Bayern deploying him at left back and central midfield in recent times.
