Real Madrid were going all guns blazing in their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane as a replacement for former captain Karim Benzema.

With the Frenchman leaving the club to join Al-Ittihad, the Merengues had identified Kane as a priority target and were prepared to make a move for the centre-forward, for whom Spurs are demanding a fee of €115 million.

However, according to a fresh report from El Mundo, Real Madrid have put their pursuit of Kane on ‘standby’ after learning about the situation of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.

The 24-year-old French superstar confirmed to his club via a letter earlier this week that he does not intend to renew his contract beyond 2024.

It has led to speculations over his future, given as PSG are reluctant to lose their prized asset for free twelve months later. As such, the possibility of selling him this summer has become very real and Florentino Perez & co. are at the front of the queue to sign him.

It is no secret that Mbappe is a long-term target for Real Madrid. And having missed out on his capture last summer on a free transfer, Los Blancos are desperate to add him to their ranks this summer.

So much so that, they are willing to spend around €200 million on Mbappe’s signing while the Spanish capital giants are also planning on handing him a contract worth €25 million per year (net).

Naturally, the development surrounding the Mbappe situation has meant that Kane has taken a backseat in Real Madrid’s transfer plans as of now.

There would be not enough place to accommodate both Kane and Mbappe in the squad and as such, Los Blancos have decided to press pause on the England captain’s pursuit until the situation with the French ace becomes clear.

Only time will tell if Real Madrid are indeed successful in snaring Mbappe away from PSG or if they are forced to reignite their pursuit of Kane this summer.

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.
