Real Madrid will be aiming to consolidate their place atop the La Liga standings when they lock horns with neighbours Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in a couple of hours.

With Girona dropping points against Real Sociedad earlier this weekend, Real Madrid have an excellent chance to open up a four-point lead at the top with a win over Diego Simeone’s men.

With kickoff in two hours, Los Blancos have unveiled their starting lineup that will tackle their arch-rivals at the Bernabeu.

Andriy Lunin continues in goal after his impressive performance against Getafe earlier in the week, with Kepa Arrizabalaga on the bench.

With Antonio Rudiger not fit to feature in the side, Dani Carvajal moves into the centre-back position alongside Nacho Fernandez. Lucas Vazquez and Ferland Mendy slot in as the full-backs on the right and left sides, respectively.

Eduardo Camavinga features as the defensive midfielder as Aurelien Tchouameni misses out through suspension for Real Madrid. Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde occupy the remaining two midfield positions. Luka Modric drops back to the bench.

Jude Bellingham will continue in his free role behind the two forwards in Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo Goes, who comes back into the side replacing Joselu.

As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.

It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.

Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.

Real Madrid will not pay crazy money

Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.

The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.

So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.

Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.

But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.

In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
