The future of Fran Garcia at Real Madrid is getting complicated with each passing day.

Coming on the back of a muted 2023/24 campaign, Garcia has not been able to establish himself as a first-team regular at Santiago Bernabeu.

With Real Madrid in talks to sign Alphonso Davies this summer, Garcia’s future has come under the microscope, with reports linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu.

Garcia’s future depends on Davies pursuit

A recent report from AS has offered an update on the future of Fran Garcia, suggesting that the defender’s continuity at Real Madrid would depend on the club’s pursuit of Davies.

The European champions are determined to sign Davies this summer, especially with Bayern Munich seemingly losing hope in retaining his services.

Should Davies join Real Madrid this summer, Carlo Ancelotti will continue with Ferland Mendy as the club’s number-one left-back while Fran Garcia’s role could dwindle further.

That could eventually lead to the Spaniard’s departure. The player has no shortage of suitors either, with Bournemouth among the clubs reportedly interested in his services.

However, if Real Madrid fail to sign Alphonso Davies this summer, Garcia could continue serving as the alternative to Ferland Mendy in the left-back position.

Latest on Alphonso Davies

For the time being, Real Madrid’s negotiations with Bayern Munich for Alphonso Davies have been put on hold until the end of Copa America.

Davies’ Canada has recently lost to Argentina in the semifinals, but the North American giants are slated to play a third-placed game against the loser of the second semifinal between Uruguay and Colombia.

As Real Madrid wait for Copa America to conclude, the club are focusing on the deal to sign another top defensive target in the form of Leny Yoro.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
