The Real Madrid Castilla side is set for a change of guard. After recording one of the team’s most successful runs in recent years, Raul Gonzalez and the administration are set to see multiple stars leave and look for new pastures.

Sergio Arribas, Carlos Dotor, Marvin Park, Antonio Blanco, and Alvaro Martin are some of the young stars actively seeking moves out of the club. However, the club have a different stance on one Castilla star – Rafa Marin.

Los Blancos outright refuse to sell the young star this summer, even with the inclusion of a buyback clause.

Their firm stance on sending him only on loan made many believe that they had him in their plans for the future.

Marin will have a place in the first team in 2024/25

AS confirms the same in a recent report. According to the Spanish publication, Marin has an assured place in the first-team squad for 2024/25.

The management have high hopes for the defender and see him as a valuable asset for the coming decade.

In Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, and David Alaba, the Merengues have one of the world’s most experienced and resilient defensive lineups, but barring the Brazilian, the other stars are in their thirties.

The first-choice replacement and club captain, Nacho Fernandez, could well be in his final year at the club.

Marin will presumably replace the veteran in the 2024/25 season and look to take over from Alaba or Rudiger in the long term.

The 21-year-old centre-back has signed a contract renewal with Real Madrid that will see him contracted to the club until 2026.

Deportivo Alaves are currently in advanced talks with Real Madrid over a one-year loan deal for Marin.

A year with the newly-promoted La Liga side would do wonders for Marin’s development if he finds enough minutes under his belt. Needless to say, it is a win-win for all parties involved.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
