According to journalist Matteo Moretto, Real Madrid have not lost sight of Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies, adding that even the player is aware of the fact that the record European champions hold him in high regard.

It is not secret that Real Madrid are keen on strengthening the left-back spot next summer and for that matter, they are keenly observing what is going on with Davies.

At Bayern, it is understood that while they are desperate to extend the player’s contract, which has a validity until 2025, talks are currently on hold especially after ex-director Hasan Salihamidzic was sacked at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Bayern keen on retaining his services

As of today, Real Madrid continue to be vigilant about the status of the player. At the same time, Bayern are not willing to let him lose that easily.

For that matter, although the prospects of renewing this contract have hit a deadlock, the Bavarians are expected to rekindle negotiations soon enough, as they are intent on retaining him at all costs.

Nonetheless, the Canadian speedster is aware of Real Madrid’s deep admiration for his talent. He knows that given favourable economic conditions, the Spanish powerhouse could potentially make a decisive move to secure his services.

Meanwhile, as the narrative of this contractual tug-of-war unfolds, Davies finds himself at the epicentre of a fascinating story where he is the protagonist in the eyes of both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Why are Madrid interested in Davies?

As such, judging by the look of things, it is safe to assume that the coming months will bring out concrete news that could reshape the future of the left-back.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they are beginning to have reservations over Ferland Mendy’s fitness. This has forced them to consider the possibility of parting ways with him at the end of the season.

In that scenario, they would be left with just Fran Garcia to cover the position and this is why Davies is been looked upon as a worthy candidate.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
