Real Madrid were not happy at RFEF’s decision to hand them the league trophy against Granada on May 11th at Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes.

Real Madrid did not want to celebrate the title in an away stadium, especially knowing Granada might get relegated on the same day.

As a result, the club requested REFE for a change of plans, in regard to the trophy-handing ceremony, leading many to believe that the club might receive the trophy on May 14 against Alaves.

RFEF to hand La Liga trophy at Valdebebas

But in a recent development, MARCA reports that RFEF has decided to hand Real Madrid the league trophy this Sunday, May 12.

The trophy will be handed at the Valdebebas, Real Madrid’s training facility. The trophy will be given at around 9:30 in the morning.

The event will be held behind closed doors and the person in charge of delivering it will be the president of the RFEF, Pedro Rocha.

This latest decision could help Real Madrid avoid making any changes to their usual trophy-celebration plans at Cibeles on Sunday.

Indeed, if RFEF had delayed the trophy ceremony to May 14 against Alaves, the club would have had to postpone plans to celebrate the league title at the Cibeles fountain.

Real Madrid’s celebration plans

Once the trophy is handed over in the morning, Real Madrid players are expected to immediately Valdebebas at 11 AM and head for the Almudena Cathedral.

Real Madrid players are expected to parade across the Almudena Cathedral, the Community of Madrid and the Madrid City hall, before heading to the Cibeles fountain.

The celebrations will conclude at Cibeles, with Real Madrid planning a fan-player gathering, among other things.

In the meantime, though, Real Madrid players will be focused on their upcoming task at hand as they take on Bayern Munich in the second leg of the UCL semifinal on Wednesday.

A recent report from Defensa Central has revealed that Real Madrid are interested in signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich, hoping to secure the deal for a fee between €30 million and €35 million.

Currently, Real Madrid’s main focus is on their upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. 

As a result, they have not been concentrating much on their summer transfer plans. However, despite this distraction, their interest in Davies has been reignited, marking another step towards bringing him to Madrid.

It is said that Davies remains a key target for Real Madrid and the club is strategising to make a move for him, believing that the time and situation are on their side. 

It is to be noted that Davies’ contract with Bayern Munich ends in 2025, and there are no indications that he plans to renew it. Real Madrid are banking on this uncertainty to pressure Bayern into selling him.

Bayern ready to part ways with Davies

It is said that Bayern have made their stance clear regarding Davies: he must either extend his contract or be sold this summer. 

Davies has not yet made his decision known, although Bayern suspect he is leaning towards leaving. He hasn’t responded to their offer of a salary increase, which would pay him around €13 million gross per year.

Bayern are unwilling to raise their offer and are keen to resolve this situation quickly to plan for the next season.

Real Madrid are loving this drama

As days pass, Davies’ market value decreases slightly due to his inconsistent season, marked by injuries and patches of poor performance. 

Bayern are under pressure to sell him to avoid losing him for free later, which has led to a reduced asking price. 

Real Madrid are aware of this situation and remember Davies’ impressive performance in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Santiago Bernabeu, where he scored a spectacular goal.

Real Madrid are in no rush

For now, Real Madrid are aiming to sign Davies for as little as possible within the €30 million to €35 million range. 

They are in no rush since they already have two capable left-backs in their squad—Ferland Mendy and Fran García—and are considering buying back Miguel Gutierrez. Thus, securing a new left-back isn’t an urgent need for them.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid are committed to acquiring the Canadian star. Their scouting team has long recommended him, and negotiations have been ongoing since last summer. 

There is already a verbal agreement between Davies and Real Madrid, indicating that the club’s interest is serious and well-planned.
