Alphonso Davies is one of the clearer transfer targets Real Madrid have in mind heading into the summer transfer window.

There may be uncertainty over the target for the forward line, but the Canadian international is the management’s top choice to reinforce the left-back position.

Over the past few months, the Merengues have been in constant contact with the defender’s entourage, prompting him to turn down Bayern Munich’s renewal proposals to force a move to Spain.

The German champions, however, have not backed off and are placing lucrative proposals on his table.

The agent factor

As revealed by the German kicker (h/t RM4Arab), Bayern Munich officials believe that Davies’ agent is playing a key role in the transfer saga. They feel he is the one managing his client’s ideas in light of Real Madrid’s interest in him.

The report furthers that Davies requested €13 million annually in addition to bonuses from Bayern Munich for a renewal, but the club are unwilling to meet his demands. They see it to be an uphill demand.

The report contradicts the update from last week which furthered that Davies was close to a renewal with Bayern Munich. It remains to be seen how the situation evolves in the coming week.

Davies agent as a vocal spokesperson

Davies’ agent, Nedal Huoseh, had a key role in igniting rumours of his client’s move to Real Madrid last year when he openly discussed the Canadian’s close bond with David Alaba.

More recently, however, he came out to refute talks of a transfer and stressed the fact that Davies was happy in Germany.

“That’s inaccurate. Right now, Phonzy is at Bayern Munich, that’s where his focus is,” he said in a recent interview.

It remains to be seen which direction the youngster’s future heads in, especially considering that Madrid do not wish to spoil relationships with the German giants in the process.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
