Premier League side Bournemouth are closely watching the situation with Real Madrid’s left-back, Fran Garcia, claims a report from Mundo Deportivo.

It has been suggested that the left-back position at Real Madrid is currently a bit tricky. Although it is understood that Madrid have always had Ferland Mendy and Garcia in plans, the club is still looking to strengthen this position. 

One name that has come up is Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich. Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich is set to end in 2025, and he seems uninterested in renewing it

While there is not any solid evidence that Davies will join Real Madrid this summer, the latest update suggests that Bayern Munich might risk losing him for free in 2025 instead of selling him to Real Madrid this summer.

Everything would change for Garcia if Davies joins

If Davies does join Real Madrid, it would make little sense to keep Garcia. This could create a ‘domino effect,’ where Garcia, currently Mendy’s backup, would look for opportunities to get more playing time elsewhere.

Interestingly, other clubs are aware of this potential scenario, particularly Bournemouth. The English club, managed by Andoni Iraola, is reportedly keeping an eye on Garcia’s situation.

Iraola, who previously coached Garcia at Rayo Vallecano, trusts his abilities on the left flank. Garcia performed well under Iraola’s guidance, making him an attractive option for Bournemouth. 

Garcia’s market value is around €15 million, however, Real Madrid are not eager to let him go just yet. They see him as an important player from their youth academy, alongside Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez, who are also from the academy and part of the first team.

In summary, while Real Madrid is considering their options for the left-back position, Garcia might find a new opportunity with Bournemouth if Davies joins the Spanish giants. 

For now, Garcia remains an important part of Real Madrid’s squad, but this situation could change depending on upcoming transfers.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
