In a positive update, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Real Madrid are finally set to announce the contract extension of veteran midfielder Toni Kroos.

The former German international’s current contract with the Merengues was set to expire on June 30. But talks between both parties over a renewal had been taking place for a while now and an agreement had been reached some time ago.

However, an official announcement is yet to be made. This sparked interest in Kroos from Saudi Arabia, who tabled a lucrative contract offer for the 33-year-old midfield legend.

The former Bayern Munich star, though, was quick to turn down the proposal as he wishes to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more season.

And, now, Romano is reporting that Real Madrid will make an official announcement regarding Kroos’ new contract imminently. The Los Blancos legend will be renewing his contract by one year until 2024.

Despite his advancing years, Kroos continues to remain a crucial part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans at Real Madrid.

During the 2022/23 campaign, the 33-year-old featured in 52 matches across all competitions, scoring two goals and setting up six more.

A number of his appearances came in the defensive midfield role, a trend that might continue in the upcoming season as well, considering that Real Madrid have signed Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million.

Once Kroos’ renewal is officially confirmed, the Merengues will hope to announce the contract extension of fellow veteran midfielder Luka Modric, who is also attracting serious interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

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.
