The report details that though an official contract has not yet been signed, Alaba is expected to move to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The Austria international is on the cusp of a ninth straight Bundesliga title before he leaves though.
Bayern are currently 10 points clear of RB Leipzig with just four games left this season – a win against Mainz this weekend will confirm the title.
Alaba has been integral to Bayern’s success over the last decade, racking up 427 appearances since his debut in 2010.

He has won nine Bundesliga titles and six German Cups, as well as the two titles in Europe, during his time at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern have already bought a ready-made replacement at centre back in Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, whose move to Bavaria was confirmed in February.
It will be a summer of upheaval at Bayern, with coach Hansi Flick leaving and Jerome Boateng also departing the club, with his contract not being renewed.
