According to a report by Jose Felix Diaz, Real Madrid forward Joselu has caught the eye of Al-Ittihad, a Saudi Arabian club. 

The journalist mentions that they are interested in strengthening their squad for the next season and have started serious talks with Joselu about a possible transfer during the summer transfer window.

Even with these rumours, it is important to remember that while Joselu is currently an Espanyol player, Real Madrid have the option to buy him for a small fee. 

Right now, his future at Real Madrid is uncertain but that can be figured out if Real Madrid pay €1.5 million to secure him, which makes him a tempting option for the club.

Real Madrid like Joselu

Even manager Carlo Ancelotti has highlighted his unique skills and important role within the team. 

Now, despite the likely arrivals of star players like Kylian Mbappe and young talent Endrick, Joselu seems to have a stable position at the club. He is well-liked and has adapted well to a secondary role within the team.

The veteran forward is aware that his playing opportunities might decrease once Mbappe joins, but he is ready to face that challenge. 

He has shown his value through his timely and crucial performances this season and his experience, strong aerial abilities, and skill in holding up play add a different dimension to Real Madrid’s attack.

This is why Real Madrid are keen on keeping Joselu. They plan to use him as a reliable backup option, or ‘Plan B,’ moving forward. 

With Vinicius Junior and the expected arrival of Mbappe leading the attack, having a mix of young, explosive talent and experienced players like Joselu ensures that Real Madrid can handle a busy schedule without losing quality.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
