Real Madrid have upped the ante in their pursuit of Alphonso Davies in recent days. What initially emerged as a slim possibility is now one of the club’s primary objectives, and the offices at Santiago Bernabeu are committed to making it a reality.

According to reports from Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich are not interested in selling the full-back this summer and have not placed him on the market.

However, Los Blancos are keen on his signing. In fact, David Alaba is one of the players pushing for the transfer to unfold.

The centre-back knows Davies well from his time at Bayern Munich and sees him as an optimal solution for Real Madrid’s troubles at left-back. While he indeed has a large role to play in pushing Carlo Ancelotti in favour of the move, he is also exploiting his good relations with the full-back to trigger movement from the other end.

The Canadian international produced three goals and eight assists in his 38 matches last season despite facing repeated stints on the sidelines through injury. His fitness may be a concern, but he is one of the world’s best in terms of quality.

Los Blancos have suffered in the left-back department for years now. They never really recovered from the departure of Marcelo, and Davies could just be the man who fits the bill in terms of attacking output.

Heading into the new season, Ancelotti will have the newly arrived Fran Garcia under his command as a novel option to deploy at left-back. The coming pre-season, thus, will be critical for the manager to understand the profile he recently acquired.

Ferland Mendy too appears set to continue for the 2023-24 campaign. However, the Frenchman’s departure will not come as a surprise, especially if talks with Bayern Munich over Davies progress.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
