Real Madrid head into the 2023-24 campaign with two left-backs in their ranks. Fran Garcia will likely begin the season as the regular starter in defence, while Ferland Mendy’s role could be largely restricted to the bench.

The French international has been far from his best in recent seasons, giving the club enough reason to believe that he lacks what it takes to play for Real Madrid. With the future of their left-back department relatively insecure, Alphonso Davies has emerged as a serious candidate to arrive in the coming transfer windows.

The Canadian international is one of the world’s best young left-back talents. He has lit Bayern Munich’s left flank in recent seasons and possesses a good blend of defensive resilience and attacking flair.

According to reports from Tobi Altschaffll and Christian Falk of BILD, talks between Bayern Munich and Davies over a renewal remain at a standstill. The Canadian International wants to stay this summer and decide his future based on how the coming season goes for him.

If the defender fails to reach an agreement with the Bavarians, a departure in June 2024 is a real possibility. Real Madrid are interested, and alert, to the opportunity.

The 22-year-old is currently on a contract with the Germans that expires in the summer of 2025. This will place Real Madrid in a strong position during any negotiations next year.

In 26 league appearances for Bayern Munich last season, Davies scored one goal and provided four assists. Further, he averaged 1.7 key passes and over five defensive actions per game.

All eyes will be on Fran Garcia for now and how the new signing fares at left-back this season. The management have high hopes for the Castilla graduate.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
