Jude Bellingham’s record-shattering start to life at Real Madrid was not something many saw coming. The Englishman has stood out as the team’s best player by far this season and is Carlo Ancelotti’s first-choice attacking midfielder beyond doubt.

While his form comes as music to the ears of the Real Madrid management, it does not leave some players in the squad in a pretty situation. One such youngster is Brahim Diaz, who has had limited minutes this term owing to the Englishman’s success.

On his way to England?

According to reports from Spain, as relayed by Chronicle Live, Newcastle United are amongst the clubs interested in the Real Madrid winger ahead of the winter transfer market.

Clubs will officially be permitted to begin business in the coming 48 hours, and Diaz is seen as one on the market by several clubs.

The Magpies are said to be willing to spend over £50 million (€57.6 million) for the Spanish playmaker and see his limited playing time to be a reason to convince the player of a move.

They are, however, not the only European giants interested in Diaz. Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan are amongst the top contenders to secure the player’s services should he decide to move, with Aston Villa and West Ham also having an outside chance.

Newcastle thus hope to beat their rivals to the move by negotiating early, starting in the coming hours when the transfer market officially opens.

Recent rise to prominence

While the 24-year-old’s term at Real Madrid did not begin with an optimal share of minutes, he has enjoyed a resurgence in December. Vinicius Jr’s injury, in particular, was the event that turned his situation around.

Starting regularly for Los Blancos over the past month, Diaz has excelled for the men in white with four goal involvements in his last six appearances across all competitions.

The former Manchester City star thus has a big decision to make. Leaving Real Madrid just as his name is rising to prominence will be a difficult decision to take, but the truth remains that Vinicius’ impending return will relegate him to the bench once more.

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.
