After having butted heads in the race for Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid and Manchester City could find themselves involved in another transfer battle for another Bundesliga star in the form of Alphonso Davies.

Indeed, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg, Real Madrid and Manchester City are both very much interested in the Canadian left-back but Bayern Munich have no intentions of selling him.

Davies has evolved into one of the topmost left-backs in Europe during his time at the Allianz Arena, standing out particularly because of his exceptional speed and ability to make contributions in attack.

In 38 matches this term, the 22-year-old has scored three goals and set up eight more, although he is out of action currently due to an injury.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid have had an eye on Davies for a while now and are said to be interested in signing the left-back.

Even though the Merengues are set to reinforce the left-back spot in the summer with the signing of Fran Garcia, there are serious question marks over the continuity of Ferland Mendy, who is being linked with Arsenal.

In case of the Frenchman’s departure, Carlo Ancelotti would be short on options at left-back even though he can count on David Alaba or Eduardo Camavinga as makeshift solutions.

It could explain Real Madrid’s interest in signing Davies, whose contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2025. But, Manchester City director Txiki Begiristain would ‘love’ to see the Canadian at the Etihad Stadium as per the report.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich consider Davies as non-transferable and are instead working towards extending his contract beyond 2025.

So, Real Madrid’s pursuit of the 22-year-old will not be easy by any means. And it remains to be seen if they will make a concrete push for him, although a move could depend on whether or not Mendy is sold in the summer.

Real Madrid winger has two future destinations on table for next season

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
