Real Madrid are gearing up for a busy summer ahead, with the club likely to bring in Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer.

But apart from Mbappe, Real Madrid are expected to strengthen a few other areas, including the left-back position.

Alphonso Davies has emerged as one of the targets for Los Blancos. However, the Canadian’s pursuit is getting more difficult with each passing day, which has led to Real Madrid considering alternatives.

A former player in contention

According to The Daily Briefing, Real Madrid have not entirely ruled out the option of bringing back Miguel Gutierrez.

A product of La Fabrica, Gutierrez left Real Madrid for Girona in the summer of 2022, for a fee of just €4 million.

Los Blancos were able to secure a 50% sell-on fee in his Girona contract, along with an affordable buyback option of €8 million. That means the club can bring him back effortlessly this summer.

What about Davies and the rest?

The report, though, does add that Miguel Gutierrez’s fate at Real Madrid could depend on the future of other stars in the team.

Indeed, the Spanish giants must decide on what they want from the existing options such as Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia.

Both players have been linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu, even though Mendy has been a consistent performer lately and was included in France’s Euro 2024 squad.

Not to mention, Real Madrid are still interested in the services of Davies. One would expect Los Blancos to give up on Gutierrez if they are able to sign the Canadian international this summer.

In any case, Real Madrid stand to gain from Gutierrez’s transfer this summer, thanks to the 50% sell-on fee clause. The player has no shortage of suitors either, with several Premier League clubs interested in his services.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

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.
