Of all of Real Madrid Castilla’s outbound stars, the saga of Sergio Arribas has taken the most twists. The youngster has been on the market for over a month now but is yet to choose from the plethora of options on his table.

According to reports from AS, Real Madrid want to close Arribas’ file in the next 72 hours. The required negotiations and discussions are thus expected to rapidly progress in the coming days.

No shortage of suitors in Spain

While the player has attracted interest from overseas too, it is clear that the clubs best placed to sign him are the local institutes.

RCD Mallorca and UD Almeria currently lead the race to sign Arribas. The former club sees him as a suitable replacement for Kang-in Lee while the latter hope to persuade him with regular playing time.

Another name in the mix is Sevilla who are looking to strengthen their squad and make a push for a top-four finish next season after their horrendous La Liga run last term.

If there is one department where Carlo Ancelotti has a gold mine of talented players at his disposal, it is the attacking midfield.

Eduardo Camavinga and Jude Bellingham are reportedly untouchable in the Italian’s setup. Moreover, Luka Modric and Federico Valverde make a strong case for the remaining spot in midfield.

Adding Dani Ceballos and Brahim Diaz, it is clear that Arribas will have little to no prominence if he was to push for a place in the first team.

Only 50% of his rights are up for sale

Real Madrid are aware of Arribas’ high ceiling and view his departure as a big blow to the team.

Los Blancos thus refuse to sell the player’s complete rights and hope to recoup some more monetary benefit in the years to come.

As it stands, they demand €10 million for 50% of the player’s rights. It remains to be seen which suitor is willing to meet those terms.

Report: Real Madrid reactivate interest to sign €50 million-rated defender

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.
