Real Madrid new signing convinced his numbers will improve under Ancelotti – report

Real Madrid’s luck in the centre-forward position has been anything but encouraging in recent transfer markets. After all, two of the club’s most recent signings in the department, Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz, were both colossal misfits in the white jersey.

There is a feeling, however, that the third time will be lucky. Los Blancos have signed Joselu from Espanyol ahead of the 2023/24 season and there is hope that he can fill in the shoes of Karim Benzema.

According to reports from MARCA, the Spanish International is up for the challenge. Joselu has arrived at Real Madrid with the firm intention to improve his numbers. The player is convinced that he can do so under Carlo Ancelotti.

Joselu is no stranger to La Liga, and in fact, has a stellar record in the competition. The 33-year-old was after all the third-highest goal-scorer in the league last season with 16 goals to his name. The fact that he was at the heart of a team that eventually was relegated makes his statistics even more impressive.

Joselu required just 34 La Liga games to get to the impressive goal tally. Further, he provided two assists and created two big chances whilst averaging close to three shots on goal per game.

Real Madrid are likely to not make any more moves in the forward department. Kylian Mbappe is Florentino Perez’s dream signing, and bringing in a more established No. 9 would complicate matters if the Frenchman’s arrival materialised.

Ancelotti could thus be forced to see out the season with Joselu as his only option at centre-forward. Yet, that may not be as bad a situation as it first appeared. After all, Joselu’s years of experience coupled with the team’s young Brazilian attack could strike a special partnership.

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.
