According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid will only sign Alphonso Davies if the conditions are just right this summer, and if this happens, they are prepared to spend between €25 million and €30 million on the left-back.

Everyone knows Real Madrid are very interested in bringing Davies, whether it is this summer or next year when his contract with Bayern Munich runs out. 

However, this transfer is not simple. Bayern Munich’s new manager, Vincent Kompany, does not want to lose Davies and is keen on keeping him for the upcoming season.

This is why Bayern Munich have decided to keep Davies for the next season despite his contract ending in the summer of 2025. They are willing to take the risk that he might leave for free when his contract expires. 

As for Real Madrid, they will only try to sign him this summer if they find a perfect opportunity, and even then, they won’t spend more than €30 million.

Bayern want Davies. Period!

Currently, Bayern Munich are working hard to convince Davies to sign a new contract. There have been some difficulties in their salary negotiations, but in recent weeks, he has lowered his salary demands from €20 million to €16 million per season. 

In response, Bayern Munich have increased their offer from €10 million to €13 million per season.

If they cannot reach an agreement, Davies might leave Bayern. However, the main issue here is the transfer fee. Bayern Munich want €50 million, but Real Madrid are unwilling to pay more than €30 million. 

Even though Davies has shown some flexibility regarding the transfer fee, Bayern have not significantly changed their stance. This situation has led Real Madrid to consider a different strategy.

Real Madrid ready to wait

As a result, Real Madrid could encourage Davies to wait until his contract with Bayern Munich ends in 2025 and then join the team as a free agent. This way, they would not have to pay a high transfer fee, and Davies would still get to play for their team.

In summary, Real Madrid are very interested in Davies, but they are being careful about how they proceed. 

They are only willing to sign him this summer if the conditions are favourable and the price is right. Otherwise, they might wait until his contract with Bayern Munich ends and try to sign him as a free agent. 

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are doing everything they can to keep Davies, offering him a higher salary and hoping he will stay with them.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
