According to a report from AS, Real Madrid are considering a strategy similar to the one used for Kylian Mbappe to secure Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2025.

Real Madrid’s ideal scenario involves Davies staying for the remaining year of his contract, not renewing, and leaving for free in 2025. 

However, Bayern Munich are eager to avoid this outcome, insisting that the left-back either renew his contract or be sold this summer. 

Thus, negotiations are at a standstill since Davies is demanding a higher salary than Bayern is offering, while Bayern’s asking price exceeds what Real Madrid is willing to pay. It promises to be a protracted summer of negotiations.

Bayern want a solution fast

Ultimately, Davies holds the cards in this situation, a fact known to both Real Madrid and Bayern. Real Madrid hope Davies will follow the path they envision: seeing out his contract and joining them in 2025 without a transfer fee. 

Bayern, on the other hand, are adamant about resolving the situation rather quickly.

Over the past few weeks, Davies has softened his stance, reducing his salary demands from €20 million to €16 million per season. In response, Bayern have increased their offer from €10 million to €13 million per season. 

While this narrows the gap, €3 million still separates the parties, a significant sum in negotiations. Talks also include performance bonuses, which have been reduced but not to the extent desired by the club.

Real Madrid are still favourite

The alternative to an agreement is Davies leaving Bayern, with Real Madrid emerging as the likely destination

Here, however, the sticking point is the transfer fee. Bayern value Davies at €50 million, while Real Madrid is reluctant to exceed €30 million. 

The player has shown flexibility on the transfer fee, but Bayern have not budged significantly, leading Real Madrid to contemplate the Mbappe strategy: encouraging Davies to wait out his contract and join them in 2025 as a free agent. 

This tactic aims to exert pressure on Bayern during negotiations this summer. Despite the deadlock in negotiations, though, Davies remains pivotal. 

Ultimately, his decision will determine the outcome. As sources close to the situation suggest, “If he wants to play for Real Madrid, he will.”

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
