At 22 years of age, Alphonso Davies is already one of the best left-backs in world football. The young Canadian international is one of the pioneers of the new generation of footballers and oozes class in both defence and the final third.

Since his move to Bayern Munich in January 2019, he has already recorded over 100 games for the Bundesliga side and is one of the undisputed starters under Julian Nagelsmann. However, AS report that his stint in Germany could be cut short soon.

According to the Spanish outlet, Real Madrid want Davies for 2024, with the Canadian emerging as the management’s first-choice left-back for the future.

The defender’s current deal with Bayern Munich runs until the summer of 2025. Come June, he will have just two years left on his deal and no talks of a potential renewal have begun at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern will undoubtedly try and renew their star defender in the summer, but the final decision lies with the player. Needless to say, Real Madrid will fancy their chances of landing the Canadian.

In 12 Bundesliga starts for Nagelsmann’s side this season, Davies has recorded one assist and averages two key passes per game. Further, he has overseen four clean sheets with close to ten defensive actions per game.

At Real Madrid, he will have to compete with only Ferland Mendy for a starting spot. Given that the French star has struggled to live up to the expectations built around him, it is safe to say that Davies will be an undisputed starter in the current Real Madrid team.

Recent reports suggested that Los Blancos wish to re-sign former academy ace Fran Garcia next summer. Whether they intend to go after Davies in 2024 despite that remains unclear. But in that scenario, Mendy could be shown the doors especially with there being no talks of a renewal for the French ace.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
