According to The Athletic, Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez could be on his way out in the summer as talks over a new contract have come to a complete standstill.

The 32-year-old is one of the very few active one-club footballers in the game currently. But his contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season.

While it was believed that he would sign a new deal a few months ago, the scenario has seemingly changed of late.

As per the report, the feedback that Nacho’s camp have been receiving from the Merengues is not positive at all, leading to aspersions over his continuity at the Santiago Bernabeu beyond the current campaign.

Talks are understood to have come to a total standstill, leaving the Spaniard to explore other possible opportunities for the summer.

The report suggests that Nacho has interest from a long-time suitor in Spain along with clubs from the other big leagues, while he is also fielding offers from teams in Saudi Arabia.

However, in case Nacho was to leave the club this summer, Major League Soccer (MLS) could be his next favoured destination, with the report stating that talks have already been held in that direction.

A product of the Real Madrid academy, Nacho has been on the club’s books for longer than two decades. While never a permanent fixture in the side, the 32-year-old has always been an important squad player due to his versatility, commitment, and leadership.

But, as things stand, his renewal looks unlikely and a summer exit could be on the cards, with MLS emerging as a possible destination.

As for the Merengues, they could look to bring in a new defender in the summer, with Josko Gvardiol of RB Leipzig a target for the club.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
