Real Madrid have not held any talks to sign Bayern Munich defender – Romano

Carlo Ancelotti openly discussed his left-back crisis in his press conference earlier this week. The manager called for patience around Ferland Mendy and added that Fran Garcia’s arrival in the summer could ease matters.

“We have had a problem with Mendy’s injury. Trust in his return. Fran García, who has done well, is coming in. We have a good defence.”

Yet, one knows that Real Madrid is not a club that waits for anybody. Los Blancos barely have any margin for error year after year. Even a minor slip-up at the club is seen as a failure, and it is clear that Ancelotti does not have the time to hope for Mendy’s return to form.

The Merengues thus do not object to the French defender’s sale come June. However, the manager maintains that he needs a new signing if Mendy is sold, bringing Alphonso Davies into the scene.

Davies has been a pillar for Bayern Munich in recent years. The young left-back has all the qualities of an ideal full-back – pace, defensive awareness and skill to navigate the final third. Needless to say, the Canadian is one of Real Madrid’s targets who can be rightly called a ‘Galactico.’

Fabrizio Romano, however, reports that the deal is far from materialising. While Los Blancos have closely scouted the defender for a long time now, there have been no talks held.

Davies’ priority now is said to be to clarify the position of the Bayern Munich directors over his future. The 22-year-old has a contract until 2025 with the German club and will take a decision on his next step only after learning the club’s stance.

In 26 Bundesliga appearances this season, the youngster has scored one goal and provided four assists. Further, he averages 1.7 key passes per game and has created two big chances.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
