With the 2023/24 season almost over and the summer of international tournaments coming up on the horizon, Spain manager Luis de la Fuente has announced the preliminary squad list for the UEFA Euro 2024.

And, three Real Madrid stars have been included on the 29-man squad list by the La Roja head coach, with the roster set to be cut to 26 in the coming days.

Dani Carvajal and Joselu have been permanent fixtures in the Spain squad under De la Fuente and their inclusion in the Euro squad was always a given.

Surprisingly, Real Madrid captain Nacho Fernandez has been called up by the manager. Despite the veteran defender enjoying a solid campaign, there were some doubts about his inclusion.

However, he has now made it to the pre-list, although it remains to be seen if the versatile defender is retained in the final list that will fly to Germany.

There is no place in the squad for Lucas Vazquez, Dani Ceballos, Fran Garcia, and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

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.
