In his press conference leading into Real Madrid’s clash against Girona, Carlo Ancelotti firmly ruled out the possibility of the club making any signings in January and stated that his squad was a well-rounded unit.

Yet, it has always been clear that Los Blancos will go big in the upcoming summer transfer window as they try and upgrade the centre-forward position and midfield in specific. Further, there are worries over the right-back position as well.

According to reports from A BOLA, Ancelotti’s side are watching Pedro Porro closely and could go all out to sign him in the coming summer window.

The right-back has been on Real Madrid’s watch list for over a year, owing to his positive displays at Sporting CP. With Dani Carvajal well over the 30-year mark and Lucas Vazquez not a natural solution at right-back, the youngster is seen as the ideal candidate.

In eight league appearances for the Portuguese side so far this season, the 23-year-old has provided three assists and averages 1.5 key passes per game. At close to seven defensive actions per game, his contribution in defence has been solid too.

Porro’s contract with Sporting ends in 2025, and just over two years remain on his deal. The youngster is no stranger to La Liga, having played for both Girona and Real Valladolid in the past. Moreover, his contractual situation gives Real Madrid a good chance of securing his signing in the coming transfer window.

Come June, Jude Bellingham will be the top priority signing for Real Madrid, followed by possibly a new striker. Needless to say, the case of Pedro Porro depends on the finances after Los Blancos finalise the two transfers mentioned above.

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.
