Even though the summer transfer window is still some distance away, Real Madrid are being heavily linked with players as the team needs to strengthen some areas in the squad.

Kylian Mbappe of PSG and Erling Haaland of Manchester City remain very much at the top of the list, with the club having everything prepared for a ‘Galactico’ signing.

Another name that has been constantly linked with the Merengues is Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies.

With Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia both not convincing fully in the left-back position, Real Madrid are looking for an upgrade, with Davies emerging as their top target.

And now, as per reports in Germany, as relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are very attentive to the situation of the Canadian international at the Bundesliga outfit.

Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2025 and talks over a new deal are ongoing between the two parties without much progress or success.

One of the main concerns has been the left-back’s wage demands, something that the Bavarian giants are unwilling to meet.

Beyond that, as per German journalist Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich are also unhappy with some of Davies’ performances, which is another reason they are reluctant to offer a big pay packet to him.

“Christoph Freund is leading the negotiations and Davies is demanding between 10 and €13 million for a new contract,” the journalist said.

“Bayern do not want to pay him that money at the moment. Internally, they are not entirely satisfied with Davies’ performance in recent weeks and months and his future development. Davies has to improve if he wants to get the money he is currently demanding,” he said.

Given the situation, Davies’ future at Bayern Munich is far from certain and Real Madrid remain very attentive to the developments.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
