With the FIFA World Cup 2022 underway in Qatar, Real Madrid are planning to track the performances of several players during the tournament, reports SPORT.

And one of the stars who will be closely monitored by the reigning champions of Spain and Europe is Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies.

The 22-year-old will be representing the Canadian national team at the World Cup and will come face-to-face against Real Madrid’s Belgian duo Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard in Group F in the competition, post which he will also place Luka Modric’s Croatia.

And, Real Madrid are planning to keep an eye out on Davies’ performances over the course of the tournament.

One of the most devastating attack-minded left-backs in Europe, Davies has grown a lot in stature in recent years at Bayern Munich. In 19 matches this season, the Canadian has scored one goal and set up four more in all competitions.

Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of Davies and could look to recruit in the left-back slot as there are some within the club who are still unconvinced by Ferland Mendy.

Indeed, reports indicate that Los Blancos are undecided whether to renew the French defender or sell him.

While David Alaba is also available to operate as a left-back, the Austrian is seen as a centre-back by manager Carlo Ancelotti. So, a new left-sided full-back could be on the agenda of the Spanish capital outfit in the near future, making Davies a viable target.

However, the report claims that Davies’ market value stands at a whopping €70 million. Given his contract with Bayern runs until 2025, signing him will be a major challenge for Real Madrid.

    All clubs are scouting. Davies stays at bayern full term. Real will break players as their fans are unappreciative.

In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.

But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.

It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.

Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.

And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.

Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
