Heading into the summer transfer window, Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich is a much sought-after player, with a number of top clubs interested.

Barcelona have been linked with the German international the strongest while recent reports have suggested that Real Madrid are also monitoring him as a possible Toni Kroos replacement.

Furthermore, reports claim that Los Blancos are one of the clubs that Kimmich can imagine himself playing for if he were to leave Bayern Munich, where his contract expires in 2025.

Real Madrid rule out Kimmich move

However, now, SPORT reports that Real Madrid have decided to rule out a move for Joshua Kimmich in the upcoming summer window.

The German international has still not committed himself to Bayern and has doubts over his continuity, although Thomas Tuchel’s exit increases his chances of continuing at the club.

Kimmich’s market value stands at €50 million but as per the report, if he were to leave, it would be at a price at least €10-20 million lower than that.

Real Madrid are looking for a guaranteed replacement for Kroos, although they are confident that the players they have can make up for his absence.

Kimmich is one of the options on their agenda, although at 29, he does not fit in with Florentino Perez’s new transfer policy, which leans towards signing young players with projection.

Kimmich is understood to have offered himself to Real Madrid, but they turned him down because they believed it would be impossible to sign two Bayern players in the same summer in one fell swoop.

After all, their main target for the summer is Kimmich’s club teammate Alphonso Davies, who also has a contract expiring in 2025.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
