Real Madrid failed in summer attempt to sign wonderkid who joined Bayern Munich

Mathys Tel was one of Bayern Munich’s biggest investments during the summer transfer window, as they paid €28 million to secure the services of the attacker from Stade Rennais.

Aged just 16 then, it was a calculated risk by the Bavarians, who were determined to add more youthful exuberance to their attacking department, especially after the departure of Robert Lewandowski, coupled with Thomas Muller’s lack of form.

However, as revealed by German news outlet TZ (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Tel might not have landed at Bayern Munich in the summer, as Real Madrid were interested in his services.

The report suggests the Whites had been keeping close track of the Frenchman from his time at Rennes. The teenage prospect, after all, made quite an impression with his explosive performances in the French youth leagues and had even racked up ten competitive appearances for the Ligue 1 team by the end of last season.

Real Madrid, therefore, had considered Tel as an excellent long-term investment option. But the player did not join the Merengues as he had already committed to joining Bayern Munich. He was, in fact, delighted at the opportunity to join the Bundesliga outfit.

The move has paid off well, too, it seems, as Tel has recently produced some excellent performances in the Bundesliga. He has already netted three goals in seven league appearances and looks set to become a trusted option for coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Real Madrid, though, have made their investments elsewhere. They notably secured the signing of Endrick from Palmeiras, although the Brazilian is not eligible to move to Europe until he turns 18 in 2024.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
