Real Madrid, Man City ready to make a move for Bayern Munich star this summer

There is no doubt that Real Madrid are bracing themselves for a crucial summer ahead, with the reigning European champions likely to target multiple stars in an attempt to strengthen the squad.

One of the problem areas is the fullback department, with the club lacking proper depth on either side of the field. Real Madrid have already been strongly linked with a move for Chelsea star Reece James, who could be available for just €50 million.

But a report from Florian Plettenberg (h/t iMiaSanMia) now suggests Real Madrid could also make a move for Alphonso Davies. Recent reports have hailed the Bayern Munich man as one of the club’s priorities in their bid to strengthen the left-back position.

Davies, as Plettenberg mentions, is a target for both Real Madrid and Manchester City. The two European giants may approach the Canadian international in the coming summer, instead of waiting out another year.

The former Vancouver starlet, who is known for his speed and agility out wide, has been linked with a move away from Allianz Arena lately and is facing an uncertain future in Bavaria.

A Real Madrid move for Davies would come in the back of reports linking Ferland Mendy with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu. The Frenchman has done well since arriving at the club, but he has faced criticism for his lack of consistency and potential.

It has led to Real Madrid entering the market for other left-backs in the market, with Davies emerging as the ideal option. At 22, the Canadian could be a smart long-term investment for the club and a potential fix in the left-back department, considering Real Madrid have yet to find a proper replacement for Marcelo.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
