According to a report from BILD (via Mundo Deportivo), Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies is waiting to see if Real Madrid make an approach for him before holding contract talks with the Bavarian giants.

Davies is a player who has been on Real Madrid’s radar for a while now. The Canadian international is being looked at as a replacement for Ferland Mendy, who is facing an uncertain future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Since joining the German champions, the 22-year-old speedster has grown into one of the best left-backs in the game, with his attacking output and searing pace being standout aspects of his game.

As such, Real Madrid have fixed their sights on Davies despite having roped in Fran Garcia this summer.

But, Davies’ current contract with Bayern Munich runs until 2025 and they have no intention whatsoever to sell him in the summer.

However, the possibility of an exit next summer, when he will have just 12 months left on his deal, could be very much on the cards.

As such, Davies and his agent are holding off on contract negotiations with the Bundesliga champions. Another reason that the 22-year-old’s camp is reluctant to open talks over a new deal is because of the recent instability in the administrative structure at Bayern Munich.

With the player and his agent putting off talks, this stance is starting to frustrate the Bavarian giants as per the report.

As things stand, Real Madrid have an interest in Davies. But a move for him seems unlikely this summer unless Ferland Mendy is sold. Even then, it could take a big fee given Bayern Munich’s stance of not wanting to sell this summer.

Copa America 2024: Rating ever Real Madrid player’s performance at the tournament

Real Madrid had as many as five players representing them at the Copa America 2024 in the USA, with four of them being in the Brazil national team while another playing for Uruguay.

While Dani Carvajal enjoyed success with his national team at the Euro 2024, the story was much different for his Real Madrid teammates at the Copa America.

Indeed, it was a tournament to forget for the Brazilian contingent of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, and Endrick as they failed to go past the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, Federico Valverde’s Uruguay finished with the bronze medal in the tournament seeing off Canada in the third-place playoffs via penalties after failing to defeat Colombia in the semi-finals.

Here’s how the five Real Madrid stars fared for their respective nations at the Copa America in the USA.

Brazil

Vinicius Jr.: 6/10

After enjoying an excellent season with Real Madrid, Vinicius was handed the responsibility of leading Brazil at the Copa America, especially with Neymar unavailable.

Kicking off with a dull showing against Costa Rica but showed up against Paraguay, scoring a fine brace to help his team to their only win of the tournament. A booking in the game against Colombia meant he sat out of the quarterfinal loss to Uruguay due to suspension.

Rodrygo: 5/10

An underwhelming showing from the Real Madrid forward who was handed the No. 10 shirt for the Copa America. Deployed as a centre-forward for most of his appearances at the tournament, Rodrygo hardly appeared like a threat in attack.

Eder Militao: 5/10

It was a mixed bag for Eder Militao at the Copa America as there were some indications of him returning to his best while he was also caught out at times and his passing from the back was sloppy. Guilty of missing his penalty in the shootout loss to Uruguay in the quarterfinal.

Endrick: 4/10

Bestowed the No. 9 shirt at the biggest tournament of his career so far at the age of just 17, Endrick failed to step up for Brazil.

A late substitute in each of the three group games, Endrick started in the quarterfinal against Uruguay in Vinicius’ absence but looked overawed by the occasion and failed to make any sort of impact.

Federico Valverde: 7/10

One of the stars of the show for Uruguay in their third-place run at the Copa America, Valverde was a consistent performer in midfield for La Celeste, putting in all-round solid displays while also catching the eye with his set-piece delivery.

The Real Madrid midfielder even scored a goal in the group game against Bolivia and dispatched his penalty in the shootout win against Canada in the third-place playoff.
