As we enter the final few weeks of the 2022/23 campaign, Real Madrid are ramping up efforts to tie down players whose contracts expire next month to new deals.

Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Karim Benzema are all set to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more season while Nacho Fernandez seems to be leaning that way as well.

Mariano Diaz, on the other hand, will leave as a free agent, while Dani Ceballos could also be on his way out despite having been presented with an offer.

As for Marco Asensio, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the Spanish winger is prioritising a contract renewal at Real Madrid even though he has interest from clubs in England and Italy.

Asensio has had a topsy-turvy season at the Bernabeu this time out. The winger had become an afterthought in the early parts of the campaign but has forced his way back into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans by making valuable contributions.

Across all competitions, Asensio has been directly involved in 20 goals (12G, 10A), showing that he remains a quality option to have in the ranks.

And, talks over a renewal are ongoing with Real Madrid. The European champions are said to have sent in a second contract offer after the first one did not satisfy the forward. And it is said that there is optimism about his extension.

Romano also is reporting that Asensio is hopeful of continuing at the Spanish capital club despite interest from the Premier League and Serie A. And while an agreement is yet to be reached, negotiations over a new deal are progressing.

Asensio has been at Real Madrid since 2015, when he joined from RCD Mallorca. At 27, he is in his peak years and it would bode well for the Merengues to tie him down to a new contract.

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.
