PSG are under pressure of the highest order. They have one of football’s most valued players in their ranks but are on the verge of losing him on a free transfer.

The one party benefitting from the clash between Kylian Mbappe and the French outfit is Real Madrid. Los Blancos believe that the forward considers them his only destination, and are looking for manoeuvres to lower the transfer fee involved.

According to reports from L’Equipe, the Merengues could wait until the last week of August to make an official bid for Mbappe. This would force PSG to sell him at the lowest price possible, similar to the trick Real Madrid tried in 2021.

The Merengues’ top target is currently in the final year of his contract at Parc des Princes and hopes to leave the club on a free transfer next summer to join Real Madrid. The Ligue 1 champions, however, cannot afford to lose him without compensation and rule out that option.

PSG have begun using the names of clubs like Barcelona and opened negotiations with other interested parties hoping to push Real Madrid into negotiations. Indeed, they know that the player will not leave for any other club.

Real Madrid’s plan to defer negotiations to the last minute is thus a masterstroke. With the threat of losing Mbappe on a free transfer just around the corner at the time, it is more than likely that the French club will agree to settle for a lower transfer fee.

The operation to sign Mbappe was expected to cross €200 million in terms of fees and variables this summer, and Florentino Perez will look to bring that figure down to at least €150 million through various tactics. After all, the club’s financial stability cannot be risked for any player.

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.
