Real Madrid may face a setback in their efforts to sign Alphonso Davies, as according to SPORT BILD, Bayern Munich are ready to significantly increase their contract offer of €13 million per year to keep the talented left-back.

For several weeks, it seemed like Davies might be leaving Bayern Munich to join Real Madrid. With his contract set to expire in 2025, he must decide whether to extend his stay or move on. 

The deadline for the initial contract offer had already passed, and Davies appeared to be considering a move to Real Madrid.

Vincent Kompany is the key

The turning point in the negotiations between Davies and Bayer appears to be the arrival of Vincent Kompany. 

According to the outlet, Kompany made it clear from the beginning of his tenure that he wants to keep Davies as he sees him as a key player for the team.

At Kompany’s urging, Bayern’s leadership, including sports director Max Eberl, reopened negotiations with Davies’ representatives.

The two sides have already had a meeting in Munich to discuss the new terms. While they have not yet reached an agreement, both parties are keen to find a resolution to this contract situation.

Tensed situation between Bayern and Davies

Initially, talks between Bayern and Davies’ camp stalled because Davies reportedly asked for a salary of up to €20 million per year. 

This demand led to a breakdown in discussions that sporting director Christoph Freund had started when he took office in September 2023.

However, Bayern Munich are now prepared to increase their offer significantly, going beyond the initial €13 million per year. This move is seen as an effort to secure Davies’ commitment to the club for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid appeared to cool their pursuit after the semi-final second leg of the Champions League, however, it now seems that they have re-established contact with the left-back. 

The Spanish club is reportedly reluctant to pay the €50 million transfer fee that Bayern Munich might demand. Instead, Real Madrid are hoping that Davies might see out his contract with Bayern and join them as a free agent in 2025.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
