Chelsea, PSG and several La Liga clubs interested in 21-year-old Real Madrid youngster

Rafa Marin was one of the Real Madrid Castilla setup’s most important pillars last season. The young defender put in tremendous shifts week in and week out and was critical in the team’s run to the doorstep of promotion.

As fate had it, the youngsters fell short at the final step to Eldense and will play in the third division once again next season.

However, their effort was not futile. The performances of the Castilla stars have not gone unnoticed, with several prodigies receiving proposals from first-division sides. Marin, unsurprisingly, has no shortage of suitors.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, the young defender does not have a place in the Real Madrid first team for next season. He was initially seen as a replacement for the exit-bound Nacho Fernandez, but the veteran’s renewal closes the door.

Marin thus contemplates an exit from Madrid to take his next big step. Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are some of the overseas clubs interested in him, while Espanyol and Celta Vigo have also enquired about his situation.

It is clear that Los Blancos do not want to lose complete control of the centre-back’s future, for they see him as a player with a sky-high limit. Real Madrid will thus insist on a clause to repurchase the star, and the negotiations will not be simple.

Another option Florentino Perez can opt for is sending the youngster on loan with the idea of bringing him back in a few years.

For the time being, Real Madrid prioritise extending the player’s contract to maintain control over his future. His current deal with the club runs out next summer and does not give the club sufficient leverage in potential negotiations.

The 21-year-old made 39 appearances for the Castilla side last season, scoring two goals and providing one assist in that duration.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
