After announcing the departure of Jesus Vallejo on loan earlier today, Real Madrid are set to seal the temporary exit of yet another defender imminently.

Indeed, according to journalist Sergio Santos, Real Madrid starlet Rafa Marin is close to joining Real Betis on a loan deal. The 21-year-old centre-half will do so after signing a new contract with the Merengues.

Marin is a product of the Real Madrid academy, having been at the club since 2016, when he moved from the Sevilla youth setup.

The young centre-half has made steady progress through the youth ranks at the Spanish capital outfit and has been a permanent fixture at the heart of the defence for Real Madrid Castilla under Raul Gonzalez over the past couple of years.

Marin has trained with the senior players under Carlo Ancelotti and has been called up to the matchday squad, but has not made his first-team debut yet.

With stalwarts like Eder Militao, David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, and Nacho occupying the first-team centre-back slots, there is simply no space for Marin in Ancelotti’s plans at the moment.

As such, an exit has been on the cards for Marin with no shortage of interest either as clubs from Germany, Spain, England, Italy, and the Netherlands have been following the youngster.

Real Madrid are very well aware of the 21-year-old’s potential and know that his progression should not stop, for which he needs to play regularly. As such, they are now ready to loan him out but will do so after renewing his contract as his current deal expires in 2024.

The report goes on to add that Real Madrid are negotiating a deal with Betis that would also include a buy option for Los Verdiblancos, where the youngster will be one of the main four centre-backs in the senior squad.

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.
