Real Madrid are looking to sign a new left-back in the summer transfer window, with their eyes firmly fixed on Bayern Munich speedster Alphonso Davies.

In fact, reports suggest that the Merengues even have a verbal agreement with the Canadian international and will soon begin negotiations with his club over a transfer.

While Davies seems to be the preferred target, it does not hurt to have a backup option in place, which Real Madrid seem to have found in Italy.

Real Madrid ‘like’ Andrea Cambiaso of Juventus

Indeed, during an interview with TuttoMercatoWeb, Giovanni Bia, the agent of Juventus left-back Andrea Cambiaso, has claimed that Real Madrid and several other clubs like the 24-year-old.

Cambiaso is a versatile player who can play on the right side even though his primary position is on the left. After returning to Juventus from a loan spell at Bologna, the Italian has impressed under Massimiliano Allegri, scoring two and assisting four goals in 25 games.

It was reported earlier this year that Real Madrid were interested in the Italian full-back and now his agent has seemingly corroborated those claims.

“If there have been contacts with Real Madrid? Difficult to answer at this time of the season, but I know they like him,” Cambiaso’s agent stated.

However, he went on to add that Juventus consider the defender ‘nontransferable’ saying: “There has also been interest from other teams, even during the January market window, but Juve consider him non-transferable.”

Even though the 24-year-old’s ability to play at right-back and left-back could make him a handy acquisition, there does not seem to be much weight to the claims of interest in Cambiaso.

As things stand, Real Madrid are advancing forward with their pursuit of Davies.

According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to promote Castilla player Mario Martin if Dani Ceballos leaves the team this summer.

Ceballos’ future at the club is currently a hot topic and If he does decide to leave, Ancelotti has already identified Martín as his replacement.

This news came amidst the announcement of Toni Kroos’s retirement that has sent shockwaves through Real Madrid. 

Now, it is suggested that Kroos’s retirement was expected to influence Ceballos’s future at the club. 

Initially, it seemed the former Arsenal midfielder would leave, and the club was even searching for a new team for him. However, with Kroos leaving, there could be a possibility that Ceballos could have a more significant role next season.

Despite this, Real Madrid are not ruling out any possibilities. They are already considering potential replacements for Ceballos and have focused on promoting Martin, who wants to fight for a place in the first team.

It is said that the club is very pleased with his performance and there is even a chance that he could receive a surprise promotion if both Kroos and Ceballos leave, though the club does not expect Ceballos to depart.

Promoting Martin, who has been a regular part of the first-team training sessions, would be a cost-effective solution, aligning with club president Florentino Perez’s goal of minimizing spending on the midfield this season. 

It is to be noted that Martin has even had some playing time with the first team in recent weeks, indicating the club’s growing trust in his abilities.

Despite Kroos’s retirement announcement, Real Madrid does not plan to enter the transfer market for a new midfielder. The club is confident in the abilities of their current six midfielders, including the continued presence of Ceballos.

However, if Ceballos decides to leave, Madrid will look to their Castilla team for a replacement, with Martin being the top candidate.
