According to journalist Jose Felix Diaz on MARCA, Real Madrid are closely monitoring the progress of Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies.

The 21-year-old joined the Bavarian giants from Vancouver Whitecaps in January 2019 and has quickly become one of the most exciting young left-backs in Europe, due to his searing pace, athleticism and attacking contributions.

Even though the Canadian international has had to deal with injury issues in his career, he remains very highly rated in the footballing community and Real Madrid, in particular, are keeping a close watch on the Bayern Munich speedster.

Real Madrid have several options for the left-back position currently in the form of Ferland Mendy, David Alaba as well as Nacho Fernandez, while manager Carlo Ancelotti has also hinted at the possibility of using Antonio Rudiger in the role if required.

But, it must be noted that Alaba is largely seen as a centre-back while Nacho’s contract is on the verge of expiry and renewal talks have stalled.

Meanwhile, talks over a contract extension with Mendy have also halted due to his excessive wage demands. It has opened up the possibility of signing a new left-back in the future if the Frenchman is sold by the Merengues.

And, as per the report, Davies is being tracked closely by the current Spanish and European champions. The 21-year-old is contracted with Bayern Munich until the summer of 2025, so luring him away from the Allianz Arena will not be straightforward.

For now, though, there is no indication that Real Madrid will try to sign him in the summer of next year. Jude Bellingham remains the top priority for Los Blancos for 2023, while they are also working to resolve the contract situations of veteran stars like Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Davies, at this point, is being tracked. And it remains to be seen if a future move is on the cards.

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
