The summer transfer window is now officially open for business, and Real Madrid are expected to be busy in the coming weeks.

Even though Kylian Mbappe has arrived, the reigning Spanish and European champions are targeting at least two more signings this summer with Leny Yoro and Alphonso Davies being the main targets.

Both players are in the final year of their contracts with their respective clubs and as such the Merengues do not intend to spend heavily on either of them.

Bayern Munich ready to take a risk

Just a while back, we reported that Leny Yoro would be willing to see out his contract at Lille and join Real Madrid for free in the summer of 2025.

Now, as far as Alphonso Davies’ situation is concerned, his club, Bayern Munich, are prepared to take the risk of losing him for free next year as they are still attempting to renew his contract, reports The Athletic.

Real Madrid have been informed of the Bavarian giants’ stance, although both parties remain in contact with the player’s agent to discuss the operation.

Los Blancos want Davies to upgrade their options in the left-back position, but will not pay over the odds, especially with Bayern demanding around €60 million.

Considering Ferland Mendy’s improved form, Real Madrid do not see the signing of Davies as a major priority.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are not prepared to give up on their efforts to renew the Canadian international’s contract either and would be ready to risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Signing Davies for free in 2025 could end up suiting Real Madrid as well, considering that Mendy’s contract expires then as well.

Nothing is guaranteed at this point though and there could be movements once Davies returns from international duty at Copa America.

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.
