It is a summer of international tournaments as the UEFA Euro 2024 and Copa America are set to kick off in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid have a number of players away on national team duty participating in the aforementioned tournaments.

As many as four Real Madrid stars are in the Brazil squad for the Copa America, with Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, and Endrick all featuring in Dorival Jr.’s final list.

Now, the four players have learnt the jersey numbers that they will be wearing for the Selecao at the prestigious tournament in the coming weeks.

Vinicius, who will be Brazil’s leading man in attack in Neymar’s absence, takes the No. 7 shirt that he also wears at Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Rodrygo has been handed the iconic No. 10 jersey by Brazil for the tournament, whereas Endrick, very much in the nascent stages of his career, gets the No. 9 shirt.

Eder Militao will wear the #3 jersey.

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.
