With the deal for Kylian Mbappe already closed, Real Madrid are working on signing other targets, one of whom happens to be Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies.

The 23-year-old Canadian international has been on the radars of the La Liga champions for a long time now and the club saw this summer as the best opportunity to snare him away from Bayern as he entered the final year of his contract.

Despite there being a willingness from both the player and the Merengues, the deal has not seen much concrete progress as Bayern intend to retain the left-back.

In fact, it appears that the possibility of Davies now staying at Bayern Munich can no longer be ruled out.

Indeed, as per Florian Plettenberg, it is now very much possible that Alphonso Davies signs a new contract and continues at Bayern Munich.

This change has been brought about due to the appointment of Vincent Kompany as new manager, with the Belgian tactician extremely eager to retain the left-back’s services.

A major bone of contention in negotiations over a new deal between Davies and Bayern had been his wage demands, which the club seemed excessive.

After all, the Canadian left-back was holding out for a package worth around €20 million per year whereas the Bavarians were only offering around €13-14 million per season.

But it appears that the two parties could be willing to work out a middle ground to continue their partnership.

What about Real Madrid?

As mentioned previously, Real Madrid hold a strong interest in signing Davies in the summer, but there has been no concrete offer made yet.

What is clear is that Los Blancos do not intend on paying over the odds for the left-back, considering that he only has a year left on his contract.

Furthermore, with Ferland Mendy recapturing his best form, the Merengues are no longer pushing to sign a left-back unless it is for a reasonable price.

So, the possibility of Davies signing a new deal at Bayern Munich can no longer be taken off the table.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
