We are in the conclusive phase of the 2022 FIFA World Cup as Argentina take on France in the final on Sunday. With the tournament set to wrap up by the end of the weekend, the club football should soon return after a mid-season hiatus.

Many clubs have already begun their preparation with the players that they have and Real Madrid are no exception when it comes to that.

The Whites have recently fared in a friendly against Leganes, which was thought to be one of three friendlies the club will face before they take on Real Valladolid by the end of the month.

Los Blancos were unable to seal a win against Leganes, drawing 1-1. But the participation of Karim Benzema raised many eyebrows, as the Ballon d’Or winner is still a part of the French squad in the World Cup. He is, in fact, eligible to play in the final, provided he is fully fit.

Nevertheless, Real Madrid are going to continue their preparation by taking on Getafe in their second friendly, reports Sergio Santos.

The Spanish journalist suggests that the Whites are set to face the Spanish top-flight outfit at the Valdebebas on Friday. This game is expected to feature a few of the stars from the World Cup, including the return of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard, among others.

Even after the Getafe game, Real Madrid are expected to play one more friendly, which will likely involve most of the superstars in the first-team, including the likes of Luka Modric, whose team’s hopes were ended by an Argentina side led by Lionel Messi.

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.
