With the signing of Kylian Mbappe all but sealed, MARCA is reporting that Real Madrid are all set to start negotiations with Bayern Munich for the signing of Alphonso Davies.

The 23-year-old is one of the top targets for Los Blancos heading into the summer transfer window, along with Mbappe, and with the Frenchman all set to arrive, the focus will now shift to the Canadian left-back.

Negotiations to start, player wants to join

Following a meeting in Munich a few days ago between Davies’ agent, Nedal Huoseh, and Bayern’s sporting director Christoph Freund, the Bavarian club have already assumed that Davies does not want to renew his contract, which expires on 30 June 2025.

That is because he has long ago decided to join Real Madrid. For more than a year now, Los Merengues has kept the Canadian as one of their strategic targets. For that, of course, he cannot renew his contract with Bayern.

Davies’ case follows a very similar pattern to that of Jude Bellingham last season when he had one more season left on his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Bellingham made it clear to the Dortmund board that he would accept no other destination club than Real Madrid, and Davies is expected to do the same with Bayern Munich.

Bayern want €50 million

Bayern Munich are resigned to try to get the maximum possible for Davies’ transfer. The German champions are already looking at Milan’s Theo Hernandez as a possible replacement. And they will ask for around €50 million for the Real Madrid target.

The Valdebebas offices are preparing to enter the transfer phase that directly affects the negotiation between the two clubs, once Florentino Perez gives the go-ahead.

It is very likely that Real Madrid will start with a lower offer, around €35 million, given that Davies has just one year left on his contract. But Madrid are usually very tactful in negotiations and will not skimp a couple of million in order to get the deal done to the satisfaction of all parties involved.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
