Real Madrid have boasted of one of the best midfields in the world over the last decade or so, with Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Casemiro at the helm. Further, they learnt from the mistakes of their arch-rivals Barcelona, and have already started to revamp the centre of the park with the young reinforcements.

Los Blancos already have the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde on their roster, but do not want to stop anytime soon. They have been eyeing a move for English wonderkid Jude Bellingham.

They have, however, received a blow in their pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that Liverpool have already begun talks with the player.

Further, the reliable journalist also claims that Chelsea and Manchester City are also in race for the player, and nothing has been finalised yet.

The player is expected to stay at Dortmund through the winter, with his price tag reaching nearly €120 million in the summer.

Real Madrid have been planning for this transfer for months, now, alongside Liverpool, and will not give up easily.

That said, they realise the competition for his signature will be extremely tough, and as such, they have prepared a four-man backup shortlist.

These four players on their radar are Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio, Enzo Fernandez of SL Benfica and Lovro Majer of Rennes.

Bellingham will likely not contemplate his future before the World Cup, and the way he has started the tournament, his stocks will only increase from here on.

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.
