A report from SER has emerged that Real Madrid would be willing to pay €50 million for Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies, an amount which is agreeable for the record Bundesliga champions.

The outlet affirms that Real Madrid are set to propose a €35 million deal to Bayern Munich while intending to offer him a four-year contract.

However, the Bavarians do not wish to negotiate the price and want a closed offer, relaying that Real Madrid must pay a precise amount specified by them.

And Real Madrid believe that a total package of around €50 million would be enough and this will be inclusive of variable components.

Within the club, there is optimism that Davies will end up arriving in the summer, with the chances rated at 90% as per the report.

In fact, it was only yesterday that we reported the latest development involving the Canadian, relaying that Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with the left-back.

Won’t Real Madrid be overstaffed at left-back?

Now, it is one thing that Real Madrid are chasing Davies, but it is to be noted that despite the financial considerations, the team from the Spanish capital is quite optimistic about this transfer. 

However, should the Canadian international join, Real Madrid would have three left-backs in the upcoming season, namely Davies, Ferland Mendy, and Fran Garcia. 

On top of that, there is a possibility of the Merengues deciding to re-sign Miguel Gutierrez, via a payment of €8 million to Girona to activate his buyback clause.

In such a scenario, the club would face the decision of retaining two out of the four defenders and it remains to be seen what the management decides.

One thing that is for sure is that Real Madrid will 100% go for Davies regardless of the overstaffing issue at the club.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
