It is safe to say that Real Madrid have made a solid start to the summer transfer window. The Merengues endured a shaky start to the summer, losing four forwards on free transfers in a span of days. Yet, their recovery has been remarkable.

Los Blancos have brought in serious quality to the midfield in the form of Jude Bellingham and Arda Güler. Moreover, Joselu also promises to be a solid option for the number nine role after a stellar run last season.

With preseason set to begin today, there is a lot on the plates of the Real Madrid administration.

And, according to reports from Jose Felix Diaz, Florentino Perez, Carlo Ancelotti and the club CEO Jose Angel Sanchez will meet in the coming days to discuss the various agendas on the table.

The topics slated for discussion include the planning of pre-season work and the current status of the squad. Further, there will be discussions over any possible departures from the squad and the need for new signings in certain positions.

On the departure front, one can expect Ferland Mendy, Jesus Vallejo, and Alvaro Odriozola to be the names discussed. The trio are seen as surplus to requirements and could be offloaded, although Mendy’s future would depend on whether another left-back can be signed or not.

Moving to arrivals, it is difficult to see any topic other than Kylian Mbappe being the elephant in the room. The Frenchman’s transfer saga has taken turns in all possible directions in recent days and does not appear to be moving satisfactorily.

It thus remains to be seen as to what comes out of the meeting, particularly over the forward situation. Will Los Blancos put all their eggs in the basket called Mbappe or look for other options this summer? Only time will tell.

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.
