Real Madrid are working on reinforcing their team on multiple fronts this summer transfer window, and have prepared a revolutionary sum for their endeavours. 

Reports claim that Madrid are ready to sell €300-400 million this summer as they know the team will be unable to compete without a ton more depth. 

Four of their forwards have already left the club this summer, a list that starts with Marco Asensio, but also includes Eden Hazard, Mariano Diaz, and most importantly, Karim Benzema. 

While it is clear that they will be spending a fortune to bring in multiple attackers, Madrid also need to spare money for other positions, such as the left-back spot. 

Ferland Mendy has been placed on the exit list, and even if he is to continue, Madrid have already chosen Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies as their next star fullback. 

According to Spanish outlet MARCA, Real Madrid have already contacted Bayern Munich over a transfer for Davies this summer. Their approaches have not been rejected by the Bavarian giants.

The report also stated that Madrid have travelled to Munich twice already to speak to Davies’ entourage as they prepare the move. The Canadian has a contract until 2025, and reportedly does not want to extend his deal.

Davies’ attacking prowess could work brilliantly for Vinicius Jr, too, who has been carrying the burden of the left-wing alone for the last two years.

Further, Madrid are very worried about the left-back role, especially given the sheer number of injuries this season. Mendy, David Alaba, Nacho, Antonio Rudiger, and even Eduardo Camavinga have put in shifts in that position.

Davies will not come cheap, though, with the price tag expected to exceed €60-70 million. However, at 22, the Canadian would be a very long-term solution for a problem that’s been worrying Madrid for a few years.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
