The upcoming summer transfer window might pave the way for a massive three-way deal involving Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and AC Milan.

Real Madrid’s interest in Alphonso Davies is well documented and knowing that the Canadian might leave Bayern Munich, the Bavarians are on the lookout for a replacement, and reports have it that a certain Theo Hernandez has been identified as one.

As a result, the Serie A team is now forced to look for potential replacements if these two deals do go through.

Mundo Deportivo has reported in that sense, Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy is being looked upon as a target by the Italians.

Real Madrid in dispute over his continuity

It is no secret that Mendy continues to divide opinions at Real Madrid. As reported before, the 28-year-old is trusted by the coaching staff but the team management does not hold him in high regards.

It is to be noted that Mendy has a contract with Real Madrid until 2025. In the past, Madrid did approach the player with a fresh deal but the terms did not satisfy the Frenchman.

And now, the 28-year-old is facing an uncertain future as Madrid have really upped the ante in their pursuit of Davies despite the fact that Bayern Munich will not give up on him easily.

Mendy has suitors

As of today, Milan are only waiting for Bayern to make a move and if this materializes, Mendy’s name will start appearing on the front pages of Italian media. 

But for what it is worth, this three-way operation can have a fourth player in the scene as the aforementioned outlet quotes that Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain are actively seeking a left-back, with the frontrunner being Milan’s Hernandez. 

As it turns out, though, they also have Mendy’s name on the agenda, adding depth to the discussion. Apart from that, a few Premier League teams have asked for his availability as well in the past.

    As a life-long Madrid fan, I was initially excited by the recruitment of Mendy, but my man has not been able to live up to expectations or even come close to the level of legendary Madrid left winger, Marcello. I will therefore not miss him in any Madrid line-up next summer.

Real Madrid are eager to enhance their options in central defense after deciding to not sign any defenders in the recent January transfer window.

Several players are on the club’s radar, with Lille’s promising center-back Leny Yoro most notably high on the club’s wishlist.

However, the Merengues are not turning a blind eye to their homegrown academy gems, as Rafa Marin is making a strong case for himself to join the first team dynamics next summer.

Rafa Marin strengthens his case

The 21-year-old is presently on loan at Alaves and is showcasing solid performances in the heart of defense, with Real Madrid reported to count on him next season.

Now, AS have reported that the reason for the club’s trust in Marin is his upsurge in performances at Alaves. And if Nacho Fernandez leaves, Marin will serve as the fourth central defender in the squad.

A testament to his worth to Alaves is the fact that Marin has not been benched since mid-November, demonstrating his importance in coach Luis Garcia Plaza’s defense.

With 2,282 total minutes played, he ranks as the fourth-highest on the team with the most minutes.

Against Atletico Madrid recently, Rafa Marin enjoyed a stellar outing. In addition to making 15 recoveries and 9 interceptions, he took part in 24 defensive actions. Along with winning two ground and four air duels, he only committed one foul.

An important summer for Marin

Not only is Rafa Marín returning to Real Madrid, but he is also going to represent Spain in the Olympics in Paris.

Marin was included in five of the six matches during the Euro Under-21 qualifiers because coach Santi Denia of Spain’s under-21 team greatly values his presence and height (1.91 meters).

Marin has a bright future ahead of him if all goes according to plan. His season with Alaves is sure to serve as a stepping stone for his integration into the Real Madrid first team.
