Ahead of their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, Real Madrid have released the squad list that will be flying to England.

Real Madrid, the current champions of Europe, are looking to do a repeat of last season’s Champions League campaign by ousting Manchester City at the semi-finals before going on to lift the European title for a record 15th time.

The tie is nicely poised at this point as the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu ended in a 1-1 draw last week.

With everything on the line heading into the second leg, manager Carlo Ancelotti has announced the squad list that will be travelling to Manchester for the game.

The big news is that Eduardo Camavinga has been named on the list despite his injury during the game against Getafe. The Frenchman is understood to have trained by himself today and is expected to resume group training tomorrow.

Ferland Mendy is also on the list after having missed the first leg due to injury. The Frenchman returned to La Liga action against Getafe and is now in contention to feature against Manchester City.

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.
