At this point, it is well-established that Real Madrid are intent on signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

One of the top left-backs in Europe currently, the 23-year-old speedster has been a target for Los Blancos for a while now. And with the player set to enter the final year of his contract at Bayern Munich, the Spanish capital club are ready to strike this summer.

Davies, for his part, is understood to be keen on moving to Real Madrid as well. In fact, it has even been suggested that a verbal agreement might already have been reached between the two parties.

And even though his agent has moved to deny those claims, Davies joining Real Madrid in the summer is a very likely possibility, provided they reach an agreement with Bayern.

Real Madrid will not splash excessive fee for Davies

With a renewal looking unlikely, Bayern Munich are prepared to sell Davies in the summer instead of losing him for nothing next year.

However, the Bavarian giants are understood to be seeking a sum of €60-70 million for the left-back. And that is a sum that Real Madrid have no interest in meeting, reports Fabrizio Romano.

Inside the club, the Merengues think that such a fee would be too high and excessive considering that the Canadian international will have only one year left on his contract in the summer.

As has been reported already, Real Madrid do not intend to spend more than €40 million on the deal, with the Spanish capital giants considering it to be a fair price for the left-back.

Romano adds that Real Madrid are continuing to work on the deal and believe that personal terms will not be an issue.

But the price tag set by Bayern, who will still try and convince the player to sign a new deal, will be key to see how things evolve.

A recent report from Defensa Central has revealed that Real Madrid are interested in signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich, hoping to secure the deal for a fee between €30 million and €35 million.

Currently, Real Madrid’s main focus is on their upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. 

As a result, they have not been concentrating much on their summer transfer plans. However, despite this distraction, their interest in Davies has been reignited, marking another step towards bringing him to Madrid.

It is said that Davies remains a key target for Real Madrid and the club is strategising to make a move for him, believing that the time and situation are on their side. 

It is to be noted that Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich ends in 2025, and there are no indications that he plans to renew it. Real Madrid are banking on this uncertainty to pressure Bayern into selling him.

Bayern ready to part ways with Davies

It is said that Bayern have made their stance clear regarding Davies: he must either extend his contract or be sold this summer. 

Davies has not yet made his decision known, although Bayern suspect he is leaning towards leaving. He hasn’t responded to their offer of a salary increase, which would pay him around €13 million gross per year.

Bayern are unwilling to raise their offer and are keen to resolve this situation quickly to plan for the next season.

Real Madrid are loving this drama

As days pass, Davies’ market value decreases slightly due to his inconsistent season, marked by injuries and patches of poor performance. 

Bayern are under pressure to sell him to avoid losing him for free later, which has led to a reduced asking price. 

Real Madrid are aware of this situation and remember Davies’ impressive performance in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Santiago Bernabeu, where he scored a spectacular goal.

Real Madrid are in no rush

For now, Real Madrid are aiming to sign Davies for as little as possible within the €30 million to €35 million range. 

They are in no rush since they already have two capable left-backs in their squad—Ferland Mendy and Fran García—and are considering buying back Miguel Gutierrez. Thus, securing a new left-back isn’t an urgent need for them.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid are committed to acquiring the Canadian star. Their scouting team has long recommended him, and negotiations have been ongoing since last summer. 

There is already a verbal agreement between Davies and Real Madrid, indicating that the club’s interest is serious and well-planned.
