In a major update, journalist Alfredo Matilla (h/t RM4Arab) is reporting that Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies over a potential transfer in the summer.

Now, all that remains for the deal to be closed is for the Merengues to finalise an agreement with Bayern over a transfer fee for the 23-year-old.

Davies a top target for Real Madrid

As has been well-established by this point, Davies is one of Real Madrid’s top targets heading into the summer transfer window, along with Kylian Mbappe and Leny Yoro.

The 23-year-old Canadian left-back is held in high regard within the club and is seen as a big upgrade on the current options in the squad – Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia.

It has been previously reported that Real Madrid defender David Alaba has been speaking with Davies to try and convince him about a possible move.

With his contract expiring in 2025, Los Blancos are eager to strike and despite Bayern Munich’s efforts to try and convince Davies to renew, it appears that the left-back is bound for the Spanish capital in the summer.

Agreement with Bayern Munich still pending

While there may be an agreement with Davies, Real Madrid still need to sit down and negotiate terms with Bayern Munich over a transfer.

So, even though there is some degree of optimism about the 23-year-old’s signing, there are some concerns as well, as the Merengues are aware that the Bundesliga champions will not make it easy.

It all depends on how negotiations with Bayern Munich proceed, but the left-back could very well be on his way to Real Madrid in the summer.

How that impacts the futures of the current left-backs – Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia – remains to be seen.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
