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.

France set for major boost as Real Madrid midfielder closes in on a return

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
