Jude Bellingham’s ankle injury against Girona ruled him out of action for the team’s clash against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League last night. In fact, the player is expected to be out of action for a few weeks at least as he was just millimetres away from suffering a gruesome injury.

The player’s week, however, could get tangibly worse according to reports from MARCA. After all, Bellingham’s name has been under scrutiny since Real Madrid’s clash against Getafe wherein the player was involved in an unnecessary altercation.

A serious claim

After tackling Mason Greenwood during the La Liga clash, Bellingham was caught calling his compatriot Mason Greenwood a ‘ra*ist’ on video. While the player’s audio was not clear, a top lip reader confirmed the same, putting pressure on the player.

Getafe filed an official request to look into the same despite it going under the referee’s radar, thus breaking one of La Liga’s unspoken rules.

Despite the clubs having an agreement that what happens on the pitch stays on the pitch if the referee doesn’t witness it, Getafe have gone on to request a deeper look into the same and the matter is expected to progress this week.

The next steps

Now that the document has been submitted, La Liga will appoint an investigating judge who collects information from all the parties involved and interrogates them. In a couple of weeks, a decision will be made about the outcome.

As revealed by the Spanish outlet, La Liga will make the decision over whether or not Bellingham will be punished or not. It thus remains to be seen how seriously La Liga considers Bellingham’s words of frustration and whether or not the player faces any suspension for the same.

Real Madrid send ultimatum offer for Alphonso Davies, comfortable with three existing players

A recent report from Defensa Central has revealed that Real Madrid are interested in signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich, hoping to secure the deal for a fee between €30 million and €35 million.

Currently, Real Madrid’s main focus is on their upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. 

As a result, they have not been concentrating much on their summer transfer plans. However, despite this distraction, their interest in Davies has been reignited, marking another step towards bringing him to Madrid.

It is said that Davies remains a key target for Real Madrid and the club is strategising to make a move for him, believing that the time and situation are on their side. 

It is to be noted that Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich ends in 2025, and there are no indications that he plans to renew it. Real Madrid are banking on this uncertainty to pressure Bayern into selling him.

Bayern ready to part ways with Davies

It is said that Bayern have made their stance clear regarding Davies: he must either extend his contract or be sold this summer. 

Davies has not yet made his decision known, although Bayern suspect he is leaning towards leaving. He hasn’t responded to their offer of a salary increase, which would pay him around €13 million gross per year.

Bayern are unwilling to raise their offer and are keen to resolve this situation quickly to plan for the next season.

Real Madrid are loving this drama

As days pass, Davies’ market value decreases slightly due to his inconsistent season, marked by injuries and patches of poor performance. 

Bayern are under pressure to sell him to avoid losing him for free later, which has led to a reduced asking price. 

Real Madrid are aware of this situation and remember Davies’ impressive performance in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Santiago Bernabeu, where he scored a spectacular goal.

Real Madrid are in no rush

For now, Real Madrid are aiming to sign Davies for as little as possible within the €30 million to €35 million range. 

They are in no rush since they already have two capable left-backs in their squad—Ferland Mendy and Fran García—and are considering buying back Miguel Gutierrez. Thus, securing a new left-back isn’t an urgent need for them.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid are committed to acquiring the Canadian star. Their scouting team has long recommended him, and negotiations have been ongoing since last summer. 

There is already a verbal agreement between Davies and Real Madrid, indicating that the club’s interest is serious and well-planned.
