Real Madrid have parted ways with an abundance of players this summer. Owing to ample room on the wage bill and renewed motivation to rebuild the squad, Los Blancos continue to search for viable opportunities in the transfer market.

While Real Madrid have set their sights on many top-quality prospects and already sealed the signing of Fran Garcia, Jude Bellingham and Joselu, the club are looking to reinforce the depth of the squad as well.

Linked heavily with Getafe’s David Soria, Real Madrid yearned to pick up an adequate backup for Courtois as Andriy Lunin is reportedly set to hit the exit door, aiming for more minutes.

However, despite reportedly engaging in discussions with Getafe president Angel Torres regarding a potential summer move for Soria, according to SER Deportivos, the 30-year-old Spanish goalkeeper has opted not to join Real Madrid.

Soria, whose market value stands at €8 million, started playing football in Spain, and he spent a sizable chunk of his formative years with Real Madrid. The presence of Iker Casillas made it difficult for the Spaniard to break into the first team, in spite of rising through La Fabrica ranks.

Soria then spent five years in Sevilla after a brief stint at Leicester City, before moving to Getafe in 2018. The 30-year-old has been a regular presence in goal for the Azulones and played an important role in their survival from the threat of relegation this season.

Talks over a move back to Real Madrid were understood to be progressing, but the aforementioned report states that Soria will not be leaving the Coliseum Alfonso Perez for the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

With Madrid’s intention of bolstering the squad with well-rounded profiles, they will certainly have to bring in someone once Lunin’s imminent exit materializes.

Soria would have proven to be a solid understudy to Courtois, but now the Merengues are obliged to look elsewhere.

Rayo Vallecano’s Stole Dimitrievski and RCD Espanyol ace Fernando Pacheco have been linked with the club and may now be considered options. The summer is long and Perez will surely evaluate the best possible solution for his squad.

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.
