In a huge update, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic is reporting that Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies over a transfer, either in 2024 or 2025.

Real Madrid have been in direct contact with Davies’ camp through chief scout Juni Calafat and CEO Jose Angel Sanchez for some time now. And since the beginning of the negotiations they have asked the 23-year-old not to renew his contract with Bayern, that expires in 2025.

There have been multiple meetings between the two parties in recent times, one of which took place earlier this month, following which the process has sped up.

There are two possibilities on the table for Real Madrid as far as Davies’ transfer is concerned. Firstly, the Spanish capital club could sign the Canadian left-back for a ‘below-market price’ this summer. Or they can wait until 2025 to land him on a free transfer.

Even though there has been tentative interest from Barcelona and clubs in England, Davies’ preferred destination has always been Real Madrid. And a verbal agreement is now in place between the two parties.

Bayern, for their part, are still attempting to convince Davies to sign a contract renewal, but recent reports suggest that they believe the player will leave.

As such, they would be against losing him for free next year, meaning they will be open to negotiating a fee for the Canadian.

Just a while ago, we reported that Real Madrid are preparing to start negotiations with Bayern, who want €50 million for Davies, although Los Blancos could open with a smaller offer worth around €35 million.

Either way, with a verbal agreement secured with the player, Real Madrid appear set to land Davies, either this summer for a fee, or in 2025 for free.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
