Less than a month after the conclusion of the 2022/23 season, Real Madrid’s midfield bears a new look. With some new arrivals, renewed roles, and a stark change in the team’s balance on the field, a lot is set to change in the middle of the park for the 2023/24 campaign.

Jude Bellingham’s arrival is one of the biggest factors contributing to the changing landscape. Given the Englishman’s price tag, he will be one of Carlo Ancelotti’s regular players in midfield next season alongside Eduardo Camavinga. With two slots more or less settled, the competition for the third vacancy is high.

Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni, Dani Ceballos, and Federico Valverde are the five stars locking horns to secure the final available berth.

Given the bloated midfield department at Real Madrid, according to reports from SPORT, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City have all enquired about Valverde’s situation and are interested in his acquisition. After all, the Uruguayan possesses a unique profile in terms of his physicality and ability on the ball.

The update further adds that the midfielder is not looking for a change in scenery at the moment. Furthermore, Los Blancos are also not interested in selling one of their mainstays.

While there are offers on his table that promise guaranteed playing time, Valverde wishes to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu and fight for a place on the team. His contract with Los Blancos runs until the summer of 2027.

He made it very clear in a recent interview when he said: “No, No, I’m at Madrid, trying to enjoy every moment and leave my mark on the best club in the world. I want to keep winning titles for Real Madrid fans.” 

Valverde’s primary position over the years has been as a midfielder, but the youngster has also shown promise as a right-winger over the past season. Given the situation of the team’s forward line, Ancelotti may see the Uruguayan as a winger rather than a midfielder for next season.

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.
