Real Madrid will take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup Final on 10th August. Los Blancos represent the Champions League as winners, while the German outfit beat the likes of Barcelona en route to their Europe League win.

Frankfurt were, in no way, shape or form the favourites to win Europe League heading into the competition. In fact, they were not even expected to make it past Real Betis, who they faced in the Round of 16.

As is turned out, they beat Barcelona, West Ham, and then Rangers in the finals as they lifted the trophy. This was largely because of their astute attacking system, pressing regime, and of course, none other than superstar Filip Kostic.

The Serbian scored three goals and assisted four, including one in the final, through the campaign. Unfortunately, he is a huge doubt for Frankfurt heading into the Super Cup final.

Fabrizio Romano has reported that Kostic is closing in on the move to Juventus. The 29-year-old has already agreed personal terms with the Italian giants, and the negotiations with Frankfurt are in advanced stages.

With just one day to go before the game, there is a huge chance that Kostic could be unavailable for the final. And without the winger, Frankfurt’s attack will definitely be handicapped.

He is, by far and large, their best player. Real Madrid will be hoping that the move goes through before the big game, while the Bundesliga outfit will try to delay it for as long as possible.

Report: Real Madrid reactivate interest to sign €50 million-rated defender

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
