Moussa Diaby has broken the headlines numerous times this season for his game-changing performances in the Bayer Leverkusen outfit. The German club are close to securing a Champions League spot for the coming season, and the French talent is one of the protagonists leading the charge on that front.

The 19-year-old has 15 goals and nine assists across all competitions, with a conversion rate of over 25% of the shots taken. His eye for goal, coupled with his speed dribbling down the wing, has got several European clubs interested in his signing.

Real Madrid are on the top of the list as they seek to replenish their squad in the coming summer transfer window. However, the large economic demands of Bayer Leverkusen pose a hurdle in their pursuit.

According to reports from Fichajes, Bayern Munich have now joined the race to sign Diaby. The Bavarians are on the constant lookout for Bundesliga standouts, and the teenager is the latest to catch their eye.

Bayern’s interest in Diaby is further cemented since they are at crossroads with Serge Gnabry over a new contract. The winger’s current deal clocks up in 2023, and he could potentially leave the club this summer itself.

Leverkusen ask for €100 million for their star player, a fee that is considered overexaggerated by many.

Los Blancos too consider the fee to be a figure they cannot reach, especially given that the club need to reinforce other positions too. It remains to be seen if Bayern Munich shell out the price asked. As it stands, the chances of the youngster finding a move away from his club seem slim.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
