Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund has affirmed that they would like Alphonso Davies to continue at the club and for that, they will get in talks with the player and his representatives.

“Phonzy has a contract with us until 2025,” said Freud as quoted by journalist Fabrizio Romano.

“I am convinced that he really enjoys playing for FC Bayern. We would really like him to stay at Bayern longer. We will have talks,” he added.

Davies happens to be a top candidate to become Real Madrid’s first-choice left-back from next season, but the Los Blancos, despite public interest, have not made any inquiry about the availability of the Candian.

What’s stopping Real Madrid?

As reported before, Real Madrid plan to open talks with the young left-back soon, but as of today, no formal approach has been initiated.

On the other hand, there have been reports that Real Madrid have been keeping in touch with the player through his representative, expressing their decision to initiate official negotiations in the upcoming summer.

Currently, Davies remains open to discussing contractual terms with Bayern as well, although the club has struggled to meet his wage expectations, as he is reportedly seeking a salary of €13 million per season, a figure that they are unwilling to meet.

The closest they have gotten to matching his expectations is €10 million per season.

As of today, not even the player is in any hurry to make a rash decision. He would be more than happy to continue at Bayern Munich as well and for that, he is waiting for his agent to get in touch with the Bavarians to initiate talks.

Interestingly, after Freud’s recent comments, it seems the German champions will, in fact, enter into a discussion to resolve the issue before Real Madrid come up with an official offer.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
