Even though the transfer market is over, Real Madrid are very constructive on building the core of the team for next season, which is going to be a crucial one for the club.

The Spanish giants are already expected to go big on a new striker. But in addition to that, Real Madrid also want to bring in a new left-back ahead of the next season.

Alphonso Davies: an ideal target for Real Madrid

According to Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA Real Madrid consider it absolutely essential to sign a new left-back in the near future.

With that in mind, the club are extremely keen on signing Alphonso Davies, who has emerged as the ‘most desired’ and ‘most necessary’ option for Los Blancos.

At just 22, Davies is regarded as one of the best full-backs on the planet, having enjoyed immense success during his time at Bayern Munich.

The youngster has featured in over 150 competitive matches for the Bavarians, establishing himself as a fast and dynamic left-back, who can offer a lot of quality going forward.

But with his contract expiring in 2025, Davies is facing an uncertain future at Bayern Munich, having reportedly rejected new proposals from the Bundesliga champions. And as such, Real Madrid are keen on snapping him up ahead of next season.

Mendy out, Davies in?

The Spanish giants consider it necessary to approach the Canadian international, as they brace themselves for the exit of Ferland Mendy at the end of the season.

The Frenchman’s injury and fitness troubles have created a lot of doubt and as such, he has not been offered a new contract, and a departure is also being considered.

Someone like Davies, therefore, could prove to be a valuable addition to the club.

However, signing the Canadian will not be an easy task. Bayern Munich are already trying to tie the defender down to a new contract while the player is also expected to cost a fortune.

This has forced Real Madrid to identify alternatives in the market, with Chelsea’s Ian Maatsen emerging as one such option.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
