For the past few months, Real Madrid has been closely monitoring the developments surrounding Alphonso Davies with a keen and opportunistic interest.

The Royal Whites’ performances this season have been nothing but exemplary, as their recent Spanish Super Cup triumph was a testament to the strength of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad.

However, Real Madrid have historically been renowned for continually raising the bar. And a position that could arguably make do with some world-class talent is the left-back spot.

As such, Real Madrid are licking their chops at the prospect of acquiring Davies, who is yet to find common ground with Bayern Munich over contract negotiations.

Real Madrid remains attentive

Indeed, as per Mundo Deportivo, the Bavarians have no intention of paying Davies twice as much as his current contract.

Davies wants to become one of the highest-paid players in the squad, demanding €13 million per season.

However, with the Canadian’s contract set to expire in June 2025, Bayern Munich also does not wish to lose him on a free transfer next year and are thus expected to place him on the market in the upcoming summer transfer window.

If talks continue to yield no outcome, with Bayern currently showcasing no desire to disrupt their wage structure for Davies, Real Madrid would be eager to pounce on the situation.

Although Carlo Ancelotti recently defended Ferland Mendy, heralding him as the best defensive full-back in the world, Davies would imply making a significant step up.

For now, Real Madrid are calm and patient; Florentino Perez does not intend to make any moves that could blow up the operation, which was planned for next season.

Unwilling to risk relationship

As per prior information, Real Madrid will spare no effort to acquire the marauding full-back, but, they will not jeopardize their standing with Bayern Munich in the process.

The 23-year-old has refused their offers of a contract extension thus far, and if this trend continues until June, Bayern will be forced to sell him.

At that point, Real Madrid will go the traditional route and work out a formal deal with the German club.
