Real Madrid have had a busy week as they announced the signings of Fran Garcia and Jude Bellingham while also confirming the return and contract renewal of Brahim Diaz.

However, the business is far from done at the Santiago Bernabeu as more recruits are expected to arrive in the coming weeks. At least two new forwards, Joselu and one of Harry Kane or Kylian Mbappe, could end up at Real Madrid in the near future.

At the same time, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic reports that the Merengues continue to be on the lookout for full-backs despite the arrival of Garcia.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti would ideally prefer a player who can play both at right-back and left-back, which has led to two profiles in Joao Cancelo and Achraf Hakimi.

However, the former is not an option the club are considering, having ruled out his signing in January while Hakimi is unlikely to arrive from PSG.

As such, Real Madrid are looking at other options, and for the left-back position, the report states that the Merengues really admire Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich. However, a move for the Canadian international will only be considered if the club can offload Ferland Mendy.

Davies, whose market value stands at €70 million, has been on Real Madrid’s radars for a while now. The 22-year-old has developed into one of the most dangerous left-backs in Europe during his time in Bavaria.

Despite battling with some injury problems, the left-back finished with a tally of three goals and eight assists from 38 games in all competitions in 2022/23.

With Mendy struggling with form and fitness for the majority of the last season, Real Madrid are open to selling the Frenchman this summer. Should they be successful in those efforts, the Spanish capital outfit plan on moving for Davies.

However, despite their strong interest in him, Real Madrid will find it hard to sign him as Bayern Munich do not have intentions to sell him this summer. But with his contract expiring in 2025, Los Blancos could have an opportunity to move for him next year.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
