In a huge development, journalist Ramon Alvarez de Mon of MARCA is reporting that Real Madrid legend Luka Modric is considering leaving the club this summer after receiving a lucrative contract offer from Saudi Arabia.

Real Madrid have already lost Karim Benzema to Saudi Arabia, with the striker signing for Al-Ittihad earlier this week. Now, Modric too could follow in his footsteps after receiving a lucrative contract proposal from the Middle East.

Like Benzema, Modric’s current contract with Real Madrid also expires on June 30. However, according to widespread reports, the 37-year-old midfielder had agreed a renewal for one more season with the Merengues and looked all set to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

In fact, it has been previously suggested that Modric had rejected offers from Saudi Arabia and Qatar in order to prolong his stay at the Spanish capital outfit.

However, that could now be set to change as the Croatian international is understood to be considering the possibility of accepting the two-year offer from Saudi Arabia.

Modric’s former Real Madrid teammate and club legend Sergio Ramos is bound for Al-Ahli in Saudi and teased a potential reunion with the midfielder, as he liked a fan post on social media that suggested he and Modric could move to the Middle East.

Some reports are suggesting that the 37-year-old midfielder would be offered as much as €110 million over a two-year period if he were to move to Saudi Arabia.

Given that he has achieved everything there is in Europe and is entering the final phase of his career, one would not hold it against Modric if he were to accept such an attractive proposal, especially considering he will have to face added competition from Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid next season.

It remains to be seen whether Modric does indeed follow in the footsteps of former teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema and ends up in Saudi Arabia or decides to continue at Real Madrid for one more year.

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.
