It’s no secret that Real Madrid will plot a move for Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies next summer.

Adding to the report, AS has claimed that talks with his agent, Nedal Househ, have intensified over the last few weeks and everything indicates that he would be interested in the move as well.

Real Madrid are actively pursuing Davies to bolster an area of their team that has been identified as a weakness and the club is making significant progress towards achieving this goal.

For that matter, optimism is running high in Madrid as both the club and the player are showing positive signs of alignment and willingness to make this potential transfer a reality.

Bayern appear to have admitted defeat

Bayern Munich, in their repeated attempts to secure contract renewal of Davies, have safeguarded their roster with the acquisition of Borussia Dortmund left-back Raphael Guerreiro this past summer.

As a result, the reigning Bundesliga champions are open to discussions next summer regarding the potential departure of Davies to avoid losing him for free in 2025.

In Munich, they have already established a valuation of €50 million for his transfer.

Madrid not willing to match asking price

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they appear reluctant to meet that figure, but the Germans establishing a value serves as a promising starting point. 

It is reported that Jan-Christian Dreesen, the CEO of Bayern, will lead efforts to maximize the price for the departure of the Canadian. 

Having assumed the role of CEO in May this year after a decade at the club, Dreesen plays a pivotal role in the negotiations as he was instrumental in securing the signing of Harry Kane.

Right now, the interest in Davies is aplenty, with Manchester City and Chelsea said to be keeping an eye on him.

Both the player and his agent are aware that Real Madrid intend to invest significantly in him, but there is some caution towards not engaging in a bidding war that could leave them financially outmatched by the formidable financial resources of Premier League teams.

For now, manager Carlo Ancelotti has his reservations regarding Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia’s longevity and consistency which makes Davies the best bet for the team.

However, given the interest, it will be interesting to see how the story unfolds in the summer.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
