Alphonso Davies was not part of the Bayern Munich starting eleven when the Bavarians took on Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

Davies was one of the key players in focus heading into last night’s encounter, especially in the wake of countless speculation linking him to a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

While Real Madrid played out a 2-2 draw with Bayern, the club are likely to pursue a deal for the Canadian international at the end of the season.

Many reports have even claimed that Real Madrid have approached Davies and the player is even closing in on an agreement with Los Blancos.

Bayern sporting director squashes rumour

However, Bayern Munich sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed that the club have not received any offers for Alphonso Davies.

When asked about the interest from Real Madrid, Eberl reiterated that the Spanish giants have yet to approach the left-back.

“We have not received any offer for Alphonso Davies,” Eberl said (h/t Fabrizio Romano). “Real Madrid offer? Absolutely nothing.”

Eberl’s comments come against the backdrop of Real Madrid facing a precarious situation in the centre-back department, especially with Nacho Fernandez likely to leave at the end of the season.

What is Real Madrid’s play here?

Nacho’s potential exit has brought in a bit of anxiety in the Real Madrid camp, which is why the club are reportedly prioritising a move for the centre-back Leny Yoro, ahead of Alphonso Davies.

As far as Davies himself is concerned, it must be noted that Real Madrid always have the option of waiting for another year.

Davies’ current contract, after all, expires in 2025, meaning he could be available on a free transfer in 2025.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not Bayern manages to convince Davies to prolong his stay at Allianz Arena. In such a case, Real Madrid must step up their efforts to sign the young left-back, if they are to sign him in the coming summer.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
