One of the destinations Real Madrid’s desperate search for a new striker took them was the city of Milan. As Karim Benzema prepares to announce his departure from the club, many saw Lautaro Martinez as the ideal replacement considering his consistency and form at the club level.

Inter Milan vice-President Javier Zanetti spoke to TyC Sports about the situation of the World Cup-winning striker and revealed that the player was happy in the blue-and-black colour.

“I’m so calm as Lautaro’s really happy here at Inter.”

Zanetti did not beat around the bush and directly got to the point of Real Madrid’s interest, denying the existence of any such occurrence.

“I haven’t heard anything about Real Madrid rumours, we know nothing about that.”

The 25-year-old has been one of the driving forces behind the Nerazzuri’s stunning run this season across all competitions. He has scored 21 goals and provided six assists in 37 Serie A appearances and has also created nine big chances.

The Argentine scored both goals on the night last week when Inter Milan downed Fiorentina to take the Coppa Italia title. In fact, he has eleven goal contributions in his last nine games for the club.

Benzema’s sudden decision to leave Real Madrid has shaken up the administration, who have less than a month to finalise the arrival of a new striker.

Reports state that the club do not plan to spend big on a number nine this summer, and a long-term signing will be the priority next year.

Roberto Firmino has also emerged as one of the top contenders to replace the Ballon d’Or winner. Nevertheless, it is safe to say that the Merengues’ transfer plans are now in jeopardy.

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.
