Karim Benzema’s sudden departure left Real Madrid rattled. The Merengues were convinced that the Frenchman would continue for one more season before phasing out, but the move to Saudi Arabia came out of the blue.

Over the past few weeks, Los Blancos have thus been linked to strikers across the globe. From Chelsea’s Kai Havertz to Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, the list is endless.

However, Joselu has been the only player to arrive from the long list of names so far. The club’s attention and interest took a sudden shift towards Kylian Mbappe after the chance to sign him reappeared, and all efforts continue to be directed on that front.

According to reports from AS, Real Madrid have now informed Carlo Ancelotti that there will be no more striker signings this summer. Joselu is all the manager will have to work with come next season.

The Italian gaffer’s initial plan was to bring in Harry Kane and Kai Havertz this summer to reinforce the forward department. However, neither is possible now considering that the club are going all out for Kylian Mbappe in 2024 if not this summer.

Perez’s latest stance on the situation raises several doubts over Real Madrid’s preparedness for the 2023/24 campaign. After all, all eyes will now be on Joselu to perform week in and week out and fill the shoes of Benzema with no backup.

Moreover, it also forces one to ponder where on the field Mbappe will fit into the Galactico setup. After all, he is not a natural centre-forward, and his niche on the left wing is occupied by Vincius Jr.

There have been talks of Ancelotti changing formation to a 4-3-1-2 with new signing Jude Bellingham slotting in as the No. 10 while Vinicius and Rodrygo line up as the attackers, with Joselu the backup.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
