Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies is one of the main targets for Real Madrid heading into the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old Canadian international is very much on the agenda of the Merengues, who are eager to upgrade their options in the left-back position.

While rumours of a move to the Santiago Bernabeu have been doing the rounds for months now, a concrete development is yet to take place.

Davies issues update

Currently on international duty with Canada for the Copa America 2024, Davies was asked about his future in a recent interview.

But the pacy left-back refused to give anything away, stating that he is fully focused on the upcoming tournament and his future will be clarified once that is out of the way.

“I’m sorry, but I’m focused on my national team to go far in this Cup. I have all my energy here and when this tournament is over, we’ll see what happens,” said Davies at a press conference, as quoted by MARCA.

Real Madrid, for their part, remain keen on signing Davies, but are unwilling to spend more than €25-30 million on the transfer as his contract expires next year.

Bayern Munich, though, are eager to retain him and are working on convincing him to renew while slapping a much higher price tag on the defender which Los Blancos do not intend to meet.

In fact, of late, it has been even suggested that the Bavarians would be willing to keep Davies at the club even if he does not renew despite the risk of losing him for free in 2025 in the hope of convincing him to ink a new deal during the season.

As such, it has been suggested that Real Madrid might decide to keep hold of both Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia as they believe Bayern will not sell Davies.

With the defender now saying that more clarity on his situation should emerge after the Copa America, it will be interesting to see how things progress.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
