Real Madrid’s triple Champions League winning team was composed of several vital components. However, the heart and soul of that team was the hardworking, yet technically astounding midfield that put in stupendous shifts. 

Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Casemiro will go down as one of the best midfield trios of all time. The three continue to play at a high level despite being on the other side of 30 and are still indispensable to Real Madrid’s setup.

Now, the club must look for reinforcements for their veterans. According to reports from MARCA, Los Blancos have identified Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni as their future midfield. 

Of the three players, two are already a part of Ancelotti’s dynamics. However, the operation to bring the Tchouameni to the Bernabeu is complicated. 

Monaco demand a fee of €60 million for their midfielder, a fee that is considered steep by the Real Madrid offices. The 22-year-old is seen as the ideal successor to Casemiro but whether he is worth the fee commanded remains to be seen.

In 25 league starts this season, the Frenchman has scored one goal and provided an assist. He averages close to three tackes and three interceptions per game in addition to eight duels won and a clearance. 

Given the hefty fee demanded by Monaco, the operation involving the defensive midfielder will be dependant on Erling Haaland’s arrival.

If Los Blancos decide to invest their money on the Norwegian, the arrival of Tchouameni is complicated. However, it is clear that the midfield is in more urgent need for reinforcement when compared to the forward line.

Real Madrid do not want to pay ‘crazy money’ for top defensive target – Romano

As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.

It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.

Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.

Real Madrid will not pay crazy money

Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.

The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.

So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.

Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.

But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.

In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
