Rafa Marin has been regarded as one of the brightest young talents to have come through Real Madrid’s youth ranks in recent years.

The 21-year-old centre-half has been a permanent fixture in the starting XI for Raul Gonzalez’s Castilla outfit that is on the verge of getting promoted to La Liga 2.

But given the competition for sports in the senior team, the Spanish prospect is yet to make his debut for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

And, as such, AS is reporting that Marin could be on his way out of Real Madrid this summer in light of a lack of a clear pathway to the first-team setup at the Santiago Bernabeu. The youngster is attracting interest from clubs in England, Germany, and Belgium.

Marin’s current contract with Real Madrid expires in 2024. And while talks over a renewal have been ongoing, his future still remains up in the air.

It had been suggested that Marin was prioritising a renewal with Los Blancos. But that could change due to the lack of opportunities with the first team.

As things stand, Ancelotti has Eder Militao, David Alaba, and Antonio Rudiger vying for the starting centre-back spots. On top of that, Nacho Fernandez has also renewed his contract for another year.

Furthermore, even though Real Madrid are looking to sell Jesus Vallejo, the defender does not wish to leave this summer, blocking the way for Marin into the senior setup.

As such, Marin could decide to move on in the summer. Real Madrid have historically sold young talents but done so by inserting buyback clauses in the agreements, a strategy they might follow if the 21-year-old does opt to leave.

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.
