On Wednesday night, PSG suffered yet another Round of 16 exit from the UEFA Champions League as Bayern Munich secured a 3-0 aggregate win over the French champions to send them packing from the tournament.

This comes as yet another blow to the expensively-assembled PSG side who could now face a battle to keep hold of their top stars after yet another failure in Europe.

Neymar seems to be set for an exit while Lionel Messi’s contract expires in the summer. And Kylian Mbappe continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid even though he signed a new contract only last year.

Indeed, after flirting with Real Madrid over a possible free transfer, the French superstar ended up signing a new two-year contract with Les Parisiens which expires in 2024.

While the deal has the option to extend by another twelve months, the player needs to green-light the activation. In case Mbappe does not, he could be available this summer as he would be in the final year of his contract or could depart as a free agent in 2024.

Following the defeat to Bayern last night, Mbappe was asked about his future in Paris and whether the UCL exit changes things for him. In response, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner appeared coy, as he said (h/t RMC Sport):

“Am I thinking about my future? No, no, I’m calm, said Mbappé. The only thing that matters to me this season is winning the championship. Afterwards, we’ll see.”

Despite being burnt by the Frenchman once already, Real Madrid remain interested in securing his services and will be involved in his pursuit this summer as he enters the final year of his contract.

It will certainly be interesting to see whether Mbappe angles for a move away from Parc des Princes this summer after yet another failure in Europe or decides to hang around for another year at which point he could be able to leave as a free agent.

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.
