Real Madrid ready to offer €50 million to sign Bayern Munich speedster in 2024 – report
Ferland Mendy’s repeated injuries have left Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti stranded for too long. The French left-back is the only natural player in his position and only David Alaba can argue to be a direct replacement. However, the Austrian is on a struggle with fitness himself.
With the sheer understaffing at left-back, Real Madrid’s manager has been forced to play Eduardo Camavinga or Nacho Fernandez in Mendy’s place. Not only is this a waste of the aforementioned players’ abilities but a direct compromise in the attacking output from the full-back position.
The problem extends far deeper, as many in the administration are not convinced even with Mendy’s contributions in the final third. Florentino Perez contemplates selling the player in the summer if an offer worth over €40 million arrives. There is, thus, an urgent need for a quality left-back.
According to reports from Tomas Gonzalez Martin (via Blanca Remontada Twitch), Real Madrid could go after and win Alphonso Davies’ signature in the summer of 2024, having already secured Fran Garcia’s for the next season.
Bayern Munich are reportedly looking to fill their coffers and given the Merengues’ interest in the full-back, they could be tempted to part ways with him.
Los Blancos are willing to shell out €50 million for the player. Since Davies has just over two years left on his contract in Germany, it would appear to be a fair offer as he would be entering the final twelve months of his deal in 2024.
The Canadian International has started 22 Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists in the process. He averages 1.7 key passes and over ten defensive actions per game.
Ancelotti’s side re-signed Garcia from Rayo Vallecano earlier this season, and the Spaniard will arrive at Santiago Bernabeu in June.
With a huge outlay being planned for Jude Bellingham for this summer, they could decide to go after Davies in 2024, when he enters the final year of his contract.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report
Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.
According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.
The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.
The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.
There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.
Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.
Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.
Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.

Don’t do it Alphonso. Players joining Real Madrid too often get marginalized.
