Kai Havertz has endured a difficult spell at Chelsea since his €80 million move in September 2020. The former Bayer Leverkusen star is one of the brightest prospects in world football in his own right, yet his performances in London leave his future in a cloud of uncertainty.

Pressing the restart button at this stage in his career could do Havertz a world of good. A departure is not ruled out given Chelsea’s need to sell players and Real Madrid are said to be one of the many clubs pursuing his signature.

According to reports from SPORT1, Los Blancos are still interested in the German international. However, they do not wish to pay more than €50 million for his signature. Chelsea, on the other hand, demand a fee of €60 million without bonuses.

Havertz has multiple options on his table but is currently holding them off in anticipation of a move from Real Madrid. After all, It is his desire to don the white colours.

A player of his quality would fit into this Real Madrid team like a hand in a glove. However, the Merengues have their priorities set and the need of the hour is an out-and-out centre-forward. Any other position occupies second-tier importance.

Earlier today, reports stated that the Merengues were no longer interested in Havertz and that his signature was completely ruled out for a combination of sporting and economic reasons.

The U-turn could be down to Toni Kroos’ influence. The German star knows Havertz well and sees him as an ideal fit for Los Blancos’ attack. Given his close association with Carlo Ancelotti, Kroos’ words come with significant weightage.

In 35 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in the 2022/23 campaign, the 23-year-old scored seven goals and provided one assist. Further, he averaged 1.1 key passes per game and created five big chances.

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.
