With not much time left for the summer transfer window to end, Real Madrid are still working on a few player exits.

The reigning champions of Spain and Europe released the likes of Isco, Gareth Bale and Marcelo this summer while also getting rid of Borja Mayoral, Luka Jovic, Miguel Gutierrez and Takefusa Kubo, among several others.

The most high-profile departure came this past weekend as Casemiro was allowed to leave for Manchester United in a deal worth €85 million, including add-ons. However, that might not be the end of the exits at the Bernabeu.

Mariano Diaz is likely to be on his way out, with the striker now ready to leave Real Madrid.

And, according to journalist Alberto Pereiro, forgotten defender Alvaro Odriozola will also be sold, with Real Madrid still working on finding a club for the Spaniard.

Signed from Real Sociedad in 2018, the 26-year-old never really settled down at the Spanish capital club and found himself struggling for game-time. A loan move to Bayern Munich in 2020 did little to spark a turnaround of fortunes for him.

Odriozola did see moderate success last season when he was loaned out to Fiorentina. However, a permanent move to the Serie A club does not appear to be on the radar.

At Real Madrid, the right-back finds himself behind Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and even Vinicius Tobias in the pecking order. So, an exit seems the best possible solution for him and the club at the moment.

The report from Alberto Pereiro claims that the Premier League could be a serious option for Odriozola this summer. There had been links with newly-promoted club Nottingham Forest, but those rumours have gone quiet.

Inter Milan in Serie A were another club to have been linked with the ex-Real Sociedad ace and could rekindle their interest if they lose Denzel Dumfries.

As things stand, a summer departure looks the likeliest move for Odriozola. But his next destination remains unclear at this point.

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.
