Real Madrid veering closer to signing their long-term left back target Alphonso Davies as the Canadian seems keen on moving to Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid has been concerned about the performance of their left-back position this season. Fran Garcia, who joined from Rayo Vallecano, has not met expectations, and Ferland Mendy has been dealing with injuries throughout the campaign. As a result, Eduardo Camavinga has occasionally filled in, including during the second half of the recent Clasico victory.
The club’s management is optimistic about resolving this issue in the upcoming summer transfer window by signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich. Real Madrid has been monitoring the 23-year-old for some time and plans to pursue him at the end of the season.
Davies’ contract with Bayern is set to expire in 2025, potentially making him available at a reduced price. Reports suggest that Real Madrid could secure his services for just €50m, as contract negotiations between Davies and Bayern have hit a standstill in recent weeks.
According to Bild (via Diario AS), tensions have risen between Davies’ representatives and Bayern, with the player’s agent making remarks in the media about his client’s future, specifically regarding Real Madrid. This strained relationship makes it increasingly unlikely for Davies to renew his contract with Bayern.
If no agreement is reached before next summer, it is expected that Real Madrid will make a move to sign Davies. But the player’s desire to become one of the highest earners at Bayern adds to the uncertainty surrounding his future.
