With the Kylian Mbappe operation all but wrapped up, Real Madrid have turned their focus on signing another of their top targets for the summer – Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies.

The 23-year-old Canadian international has been identified as a key target to upgrade the team’s options in the left-back position.

Only a few days ago, reports emerged claiming that Davies had already reached a verbal agreement to join Real Madrid, with the player’s heart set on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The only thing left would be to reach an agreement with Bayern Munich over a fee. After all, with Davies’ contract expiring in 2025, the Bavarians would sell him this summer rather than lose him for free next year.

Deal close to completion

Now, Cadena SER has come up with a major update on the situation of Davies, claiming that Real Madrid are closing in on the capture of the Bayern Munich speedster.

As per the report, the deal is in the ‘final stretch’ with Los Blancos now inching closer to landing another of their top targets for the summer.

Bayern Munich value Davies at €50 million and even though Real Madrid were initially planning to pay only €35 million (fixed fee), the Spanish capital club are now willing to increase their offer and add in some variables to match the Bavarians’ demands.

As was reported previously, money was never an issue for Real Madrid when it came to the Davies deal and they would not mind paying €50 million for him.

As such, it is claimed that Los Blancos are willing to up their offer and reach the €50 million-mark, although there will be some add-ons involved.

Davies to sign a four-year contract

Furthermore, the report states that Davies will be signing a four-year contract with Real Madrid once his move is finalised.

Even though there has been interest in him from other clubs, the 23-year-old has made it known that he only wants to play for Los Blancos.

And, even though an agreement to seal the operation is yet to be finalised, things seem to be headed in the right direction for Davies and Real Madrid.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
