While it has been as good as confirmed for a few months now, Real Madrid have been officially crowned champions of La Liga for the 2021/22 season win their incredible 4-0 win over Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu.

An in-form Rodrygo opened the scoring for Madrid tonight with a brace in the first half. Marco Asensio added fuel to the fire in the 55th minute. The fourth goal came from Karim Benzema, assisted by Vinicius Jr, as has been customary this season.

The duo have been the protagonists of Madrid’s season alongside Luka Modric and Thibaut Courtois. Benzema has contributed with 26 goals and 11 assists, while Vinicius has registered a superb 14 goals and nine assists.

With the win, they have reached 81 points, and could potentially finish on 93 points for the season, the joint-highest since 2017/18 when Barcelona won the league with a 14 point gap.

More importantly, Carlo Ancelotti has become the first-ever coach to win the league in all top five leagues in Europe — Premier League, Serie A, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, and now La Liga.

That said, Los Blancos might have more in their season treasure chest as they take on Manchester City in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

The aggregate score stands at 4-3 in favour of the Premier League outfit, but the return leg is at Santiago Bernabeu. A lot changes in the heart of Madrid.

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.
