It is no secret that Real Madrid are in the market for a left-back and in that regard, they have rejuvenated their interest in Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies.

Knowing Real Madrid’s intention, Bayern are on high alert as losing their first-team player would pose a big problem. 

In case the Canadian does end up leaving, the team from Germany would need a luxury purchase and TuttoMercatoWeb has reported that the German champions have identified Milan left-back Theo Hernandez as a potential replacement.

The only issue is that the price of Theo Hernandez is very high, potentially rising to €100 million. This is mostly because the 25-year-old is one of the finest players in his position and several top European teams are interested in his acquisition.

Hernandez’s tenure at Milan has been extremely fruitful. The former Real Madrid full-back joined the Serie A team in July 2019 and in his four seasons with the team, he has played more than 160 matches across all competitions.

A mainstay in Milan’s starting XI, the 25-year-old is a fan favourite. Furthermore, he only renewed his deal until 2026 in February last year post which he inherited the role of the team’s vice-captain. This means the probability of him leaving Milan in the summer is extremely low.

It could thus end up affecting Real Madrid’s pursuit of Davies. Even though Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Fran Garcia will be arriving at the club this summer, Los Blancos are eyeing another top left-back.

This is because of the unreliable nature of Ferland Mendy, who has struggled with form and fitness this season. As such, Davies has been identified as a key target.

It bodes well that Bayern are looking out for a possible replacement for him already, although any move for the Canadian left-back will be quite complicated to pull off for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
