Real Madrid hold talks with La Liga club president, two players discussed

Real Madrid and Getafe could be involved in a couple of transfer deals this summer, with David Soria and Juanmi Latasa potentially trading clubs.

Soria has emerged as one of the potential targets for Real Madrid as they look to find a replacement for exit-bound Andriy Lunin. The Ukrainian international has found game-time hard to come by this past season, as he continues to play second-fiddle to Thibaut Courtois.

With Lunin potentially leaving the Santiago Bernabeu this coming summer, Real Madrid are considering the possibility of signing Soria.

Latasa, meanwhile, could go the other way, with Getafe reportedly ready to sign him on a permanent deal this summer after having him at the club on loan for the 2022/23 campaign.

With that in mind, a recent report from MARCA has photographed Real Madrid’s CEO, Jose Angel Sanchez and Getafe’s President Angel Torres having a chat at Valdebebas.

The report suggests the two were talking about the future of Soria and Latasa. It is also claimed that Juanma López, the agent of Latasa, was also present at the meeting.

Formerly of the Real Madrid youth academy, Soria is an experienced goalkeeper, who has almost 200 appearances to his name in La Liga. At the age of 30, he could fancy returning to his old club and serve as the main alternative for Courtois next season.

Latasa, on the other hand, was on loan at Getafe this past season. The forward did not make a great splash, racking up only 18 league appearances. Although he scored just one goal, the youngster has impressed onlookers with his qualities in the final third.

Latasa’s performances have convinced Getafe to activate the player’s purchase option, though Real Madrid could still retain 50% of Latasa’s transfer rights. A similar strategy was involved in the sale of Fran Garcia to Rayo Vallecano, with the youngster now returning to the Bernabeu this summer.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
