Some of Real Madrid’s foreign players have had a difficult time in Spain in the recent past, often becoming a victim of racial slurs.

Vinicius Junior, in particular, became the main target for racists across various stadiums in Spain this past season. The forward received widespread support from the sports fraternity, but the matter is yet to be resolved.

Now, in another big revelation, it appears Eder Militao was the subject of racial insults as well, during the game against Valencia at Mestalla, where Vinicius himself was heavily targeted by the opposition fans.

This has been confirmed by La Liga (h/t COPE), which has also released a special investigative report after consulting a lip-reading specialist.

The investigative report regarding alleged racism taking place at Mestalla was ordered by the Valencia court on May 26. The report concluded that in addition to Vinicius, Militao, too, was a subject of racial insults.

The investigation found three perpetrators – all Valencia fans, who had either said or implied racial abuses at the defender. La Liga have made some strides in taking action against such perpetrators in the past, but Real Madrid, along with some of its star players, insist it is not enough.

Apart from Militao and Vinicius, La Liga has also asked legal entities to offer proper services to Samuel Chukuwheze, the Villarreal attacker, for the racial abuses he received on his last visit to the Mallorca Stadium.

The growing cases of racial abuse being hurled towards players in Spanish football is indeed a concerning sign. The authorities must take stronger action to prevent such outcomes, especially as they prepare for the season ahead.

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.
