Despite Real Madrid’s incredible start to the season, the club is aware that reinforcements are further required to bolster the team and plug holes in positions that are not as well reinforced as others.

The left-back spot in particular has been an area of concern. With a shortage of world-class quality present and oftentimes Eduardo Camavinga availed as a makeshift full-back, the Merengues are eyeing an upgrade in Bayern Munich talisman Alphonso Davies.

Davies resisting Bayern’s offers

As per MARCA, Alphonso Davies continues to resist Bayern Munich’s tempting contract offers. As such, Real Madrid are attentive to the situation.

The 23-year-old left-back’s current contract expires in 2025, which means he will be entering the final year of his deal next summer.

Given the complexity of the talks between Davies and Bayern, the Canadian may end up being placed on the market, opening the door for Real Madrid to take advantage.

The report further argues that the relationship between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich is excellent, which could prove to be useful in the event the two clubs end up holding talks over the 23-year-old Champions League winner.

The €70 million-rated speedster couples offensive output with immaculate recoveries in defense, explaining Real Madrid’s interest in arguably one of the best left-backs around.

Bayern not willing to let Davies go for free

While Los Blancos are attentive to the Alphonso Davies situation, Bayern wants to avoid another David Alaba case of losing him for free.

At this point, Bayern’s approach is clear and is not to renew the contract before June 30. The idea is to put the full-back on the market if he does not end up complying, as the Germans do not wish to see their pride being dented by letting him hit the exit door for free.

With prior reports stating the Real Madrid hierarchy will look to offload Ferland Mendy, a move for Davies will end up becoming a lot more likely.

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.
