Bayern Munich find themselves locked in contract talks with a number of key players whose current deals run out in 2025.

Joshua Kimmich, Alphonso Davies, and Leroy Sane are three prominent names who will enter the final year of their respective contracts with the Bavarian giants in the summer.

It is well-established by now that Real Madrid have their sights firmly set on a move for Davies in the summer, while Barcelona are keeping tabs on Kimmich in their search for a new pivot.

Now, it appears that both clubs could end up rivalling each other for the signing of another Bayern Munich star.

Real Madrid, Barcelona monitoring Sane

Indeed, as per BILD (via SPORT), Real Madrid and Barcelona are both keeping close tabs on the situation of Leroy Sane as contract talks with Bayern Munich have stalled.

Sane, 27, is one of the most important players in the Bayern setup under Thomas Tuchel. The German winger has produced a return of nine goals and nine assists apiece already this term from 24 games in all competitions.

As mentioned earlier, his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs out at the end of the next season.

Bayern Munich had opened talks over a renewal with the former Manchester City forward, but negotiations have stalled, creating a big problem for the Bavarians.

As per the report, Sane is not keen on signing a new contract with Bayern Munich until after the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 27-year-old is hopeful of holding out for a bigger pay packet in the summer which would be very much possible if he performs well at the European Championships that will be held in Germany this year.

A good end to the season and a solid run in the Euros would mean an increase in his value and thus he can leverage that for a larger contract.

And, in case an agreement is not reached, Bayern Munich would be forced to sell Sane, opening the door for the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona to make a move.

It must, however, be noted that Real Madrid have Kylian Mbappe as their main target for 2024. So, whether they have a serious interest in Sane or they are just keeping tabs on the situation remains to be seen.

Real Madrid send ultimatum offer for Alphonso Davies, comfortable with three existing players

A recent report from Defensa Central has revealed that Real Madrid are interested in signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich, hoping to secure the deal for a fee between €30 million and €35 million.

Currently, Real Madrid’s main focus is on their upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. 

As a result, they have not been concentrating much on their summer transfer plans. However, despite this distraction, their interest in Davies has been reignited, marking another step towards bringing him to Madrid.

It is said that Davies remains a key target for Real Madrid and the club is strategising to make a move for him, believing that the time and situation are on their side. 

It is to be noted that Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich ends in 2025, and there are no indications that he plans to renew it. Real Madrid are banking on this uncertainty to pressure Bayern into selling him.

Bayern ready to part ways with Davies

It is said that Bayern have made their stance clear regarding Davies: he must either extend his contract or be sold this summer. 

Davies has not yet made his decision known, although Bayern suspect he is leaning towards leaving. He hasn’t responded to their offer of a salary increase, which would pay him around €13 million gross per year.

Bayern are unwilling to raise their offer and are keen to resolve this situation quickly to plan for the next season.

Real Madrid are loving this drama

As days pass, Davies’ market value decreases slightly due to his inconsistent season, marked by injuries and patches of poor performance. 

Bayern are under pressure to sell him to avoid losing him for free later, which has led to a reduced asking price. 

Real Madrid are aware of this situation and remember Davies’ impressive performance in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Santiago Bernabeu, where he scored a spectacular goal.

Real Madrid are in no rush

For now, Real Madrid are aiming to sign Davies for as little as possible within the €30 million to €35 million range. 

They are in no rush since they already have two capable left-backs in their squad—Ferland Mendy and Fran García—and are considering buying back Miguel Gutierrez. Thus, securing a new left-back isn’t an urgent need for them.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid are committed to acquiring the Canadian star. Their scouting team has long recommended him, and negotiations have been ongoing since last summer. 

There is already a verbal agreement between Davies and Real Madrid, indicating that the club’s interest is serious and well-planned.
