Real Madrid full-back will ‘definitely’ leave the club this summer – report

Even though there have already been four exits from the club this summer, Real Madrid are expected to part ways with a few more players before the transfer window slams shut.

And one candidate that is certain to depart before the new season kicks off is out-of-favour right-back Alvaro Odriozola.

Indeed, according to MARCA, everything indicates that Odriozola will ‘definitely’ leave Real Madrid in the ongoing summer transfer window.

The right-back arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu from boyhood club Real Sociedad in the summer of 2018 in a deal worth around €30 million.

However, he never really got going at the club and was shipped out on loan to Bayern Munich in January 2020. After failing to do much of note in Germany, the 27-year-old found himself in Italy, joining Fiorentina on a season-long loan deal in the summer of 2021.

Odriozola played fairly regularly for the Serie A outfit and appeared to have gotten his career back on track. But having returned to Real Madrid last year, the Spaniard was retained by Carlo Ancelotti even though he had Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez as options at right-back.

As such, the 27-year-old hardly saw any minutes on the pitch in 2022/23, playing just six games (92 minutes) across all competitions.

With just a year left on his contract, Real Madrid are keen on offloading him and recouping some cash even if it would be a small percentage of the fee that they spent on him.

Odriozola, thus, is definitely on his way out of the club with reports suggesting that he has many offers on the table.

But, as things stand, the 27-year-old’s next destination could likely be Real Sociedad, with the Basque outfit understood to be in negotiations with Real Madrid over a transfer.

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.
