Bayern Munich are currently in talks with AC Milan defender Theo Hernandez, and according to Mundo Deportivo, the left-back has given his consent to the potential move. 

The report also mentions that once Bayern finalize an agreement for Hernandez, they plan to allow Alphonso Davies to transfer to Real Madrid. 

This series of deals suggests a strategic reshuffling in Bayern’s defence line, as the club seems prepared to trade Davies’ departure for Hernandez’s arrival.

Davies has decided to sign for Real Madrid

Real Madrid are reportedly gearing up to sign Davies, significantly strengthening its negotiating position despite Bayern Munich’s initial reluctance to part ways with the player. 

Bayern had hoped to renew Davies’s contract, but with Real Madrid taking a keen interest, their stance is shifting. 

A few days back, Bayern’s sports director, Max Eberl, mentioned there hasn’t been any offer from Real Madrid yet, but that might change soon.

How much is Real Madrid willing to pay for Davies?

As quoted by the outlet, Real Madrid aim to cap the transfer fee at €50 million, while Bayern are likely to demand a higher amount for the player. 

As for Carlo Ancelotti, he continues to value Ferland Mendy highly. The 28-year-old Frenchman is considered a key player in Ancelotti’s lineup, and the coach would prefer to keep him on the team. 

It is to be noted that Mendy’s contract expires in 2025, and Ancelotti supports a potential renewal.

However, Real Madrid management views Mendy as a potentially expendable player. Given the interest from Premier League, Serie A, and Ligue 1 teams, including PSG, the club might consider selling him to generate funds. 

Ultimately, Real Madrid’s focus remains on acquiring Davies and making strategic changes to strengthen the squad. However, this is something that Ancelotti is not favouring since he places his trust in Mendy.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
