It’s official. Real Madrid have confirmed their second signing of the 2023 summer window with the capture of former defender Fran Garcia from Rayo Vallecano.

A former academy product, the 23-year-old left-back had left Los Blancos in the summer of 2020 to join Rayo, initially on loan, before the transfer was made permanent a year later.

Having enjoyed a solid three-year spell with the Madrilenian outfit, Garcia seemingly did enough to convince Real Madrid to re-sign him heading into the 2023/24 season.

“Real Madrid C. F. and Rayo Vallecano have agreed to the transfer of player Fran García, who is linked to the club for the next four seasons,” the official statement reads.

“On Monday, June 12, at 12:00 p.m. in Ciudad Real Madrid, the presentation of Fran García as the new Real Madrid player will take place.”

As mentioned in the statement, Garcia will be signing a four-year contract with Real Madrid that will keep him tied down at the club until 2027. The Spanish capital outfit are believed to have spent €5 million on his capture.

It is the start of what promises to be a busy transfer window for the Merengues.

Garcia becomes the second signing of the summer for Real Madrid after Jude Bellingham’s transfer was confirmed by his former club, Borussia Dortmund, even though the Merengues have not yet officially announced it.

Report: Real Madrid reactivate interest to sign €50 million-rated defender

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.
