For a club to sign new players is always sweet news to the ears of fans. A new signing comes with a world of opportunity and brings an energy that is often lacking in the regular squad.

However, departures are as important as arrivals in the world of football. For every player signed, the club must usually part ways with players to maintain equilibrium.

One year ago, one might not have thought of Marco Asensio as an expendable asset. Now, the Spanish forward seems surplus in Ancelotti’s setup and could well leave Real Madrid this month.

According to reports from Diario AS, Liverpool are interested in signing Asensio and have already informed the player’s entourage. Further, AC Milan too have the player on their agenda.

Asensio has one more year left on his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu. Though the club have formally submitted an offer to extend his contract, the forward feels he deserves a better salary and has turned it down.

The difference between the two parties seems large and unbridgeable at the moment and an exit seems likely.

The 26-year-old made only 19 league starts for Real Madrid last season despite appearing in over 30 games. In that duration, he found the back of the net ten times.

Liverpool are set to lose Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich in the coming days and view Asensio as a possible replacement. Los Blancos ask €40 million for their winger, but the Reds are willing to shell out around €30 million for his services.

It remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp’s side pursues his signing seriously. However, the transfer seems to be a difficult one given how far the parties are at the moment.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
