Gearing up for what has been rumoured to be a revolutionary summer tranfser window, it is no surprise seeing Real Madrid linked with the cream of the crop of European talents.

Los Blancos have emphasized on strengthening their attack, with many vacancies to fill in the front-line, but absences up front have not overshadowed Madrid’s desire to plug holes at the back.

Alphonso Davies, linked thoroughly with Real Madrid, has been a recurring name in the newspapers. As Ferland Mendy is no longer a guaranteed starter for next season, an exit is being looked for him.

In such a context, handing over the reins to Davies as Madrid’s left-back for the future is what Perez hopes to accomplish.

However, a recent quote by the Canadian international has clouded the Merengues‘ pursuit of the Bayern Munich sensation.

Davies, when asked if he would represent the Bayern shirt for the rest of his career, claimed, “Yeah, if it comes down to it, I don’t see why not. Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have great players. We saw many legends come and go.”

The 22-year-old has already elevated to exceptional heights with the Bavarians. At a young age, he has morphed into a fan favourite in Germany. With the trophy cabinet he boasts, Davies’ desire to continue writing history at Bayern is by no means a bolt from the blue.

However, it is worth mentioning that quotes taken in public do not always correlate with the player’s true intentions. Reports have emerged claiming the player is looking for a new challenge, and there is no better place to fight for titles than a club with 14 champions leagues.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
