After passing his physical, Real Madrid officially revealed David Alaba on Wednesday.
Sergio Ramos’ previous number 4 jersey was given to the Nigerian-born Austrian.
After his contract with Bayern Munich expired in May, Alaba joined Los Blancos on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old was called to the Bernabeu for a presentation with president Florentino Perez, as is customary for all important acquisitions at the club, and expressed his joy in wearing the white shirt of Madrid.
‘Hello everyone, thank you very much for the warm welcome. It’s a great day in my career, I’m very excited for it.
‘I’m very proud and honoured to wear this white jersey of Real Madrid. For sure I will give everything [so] we can be very successful together. Vamos! Hala Madrid!’
