According to AS, Real Madrid have set their sights on Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze and have made enquiries about his situation heading into the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old Nigerian international is set to enter the final year of his contract with Villarreal which expires in 2024. As such, it has piqued the interest of Real Madrid, who were left dazzled by the winger’s performance against them at the Santiago Bernabeu this season.

With Real Madrid bidding goodbye to Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz, they now have just two senior attackers left on their books in Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes.

So, it goes without saying that there is a serious need to replenish the attacking department in the summer transfer window.

Moves for Premier League duo Harry Kane and Kai Havertz are already taking place, but now Chukwueze has also emerged as an option to further strengthen the wide areas.

The Nigerian speedster is coming on the back of a solid season during which he managed a tally of 13 goals and 11 assists from 50 matches across all competitions.

The 24-year-old is understood to have a release clause worth €80 million in his contract, but the report states that a sale could take place at a lower value.

Last year, Villarreal were considering an offer of just €20 million from Everton for Chukwueze before eventually deciding to keep hold of him. And given his performances this term, they will want a higher sum than that, with the report suggesting that the transfer could take place for €40 million.

Chukwueze’s potential arrival would bolster Real Madrid’s options on the right flank and add competition to Rodrygo and possibly Brahim Diaz, provided he remains at the club and does not join AC Milan permanently.

It remains to be seen whether the Merengues’ initial enquiry for Chukwueze leads to something substantial in the coming weeks.

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.
