Real Madrid’s plan to reinforce the left-back position has turned into a major dilemma and a key topic of discussion at the Santiago Bernabeu as we close in on the start of the summer transfer window.

The club were always keen on the services of Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich, despite Ferland Mendy’s superb performances this past season.

However, recent developments suggest Davies might remain at Bayern Munich this summer, as Real Madrid have found it difficult to find an agreement with the Bavarian outfit.

Davies wants to join Real Madrid imminently

Even though Real Madrid have hit a roadblock in their bid to sign Alphonso Davies, the player, for his part, appears to be keen on imminently sealing a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

This is according to Carrusel Deportivo, which suggests the Canadian international is desperate to seal a move to the Spanish capital as soon as possible.

Davies’ unrelenting desire to move to Real Madrid is not surprising given the player has been unsettled at Bayern for a while now.

Carlo Ancelotti willing to wait

As per the report, Carlo Ancelotti is in no rush to sign Davies. His desire is for Real Madrid to wait until 2025 to sign the Canadian international on a free transfer.

That is when Davies’ contract at Bayern comes to an end. The Bavarians, for their part, appear willing to take the risk, as they are hopeful of convincing the left-back to sign a contract extension.

As Real Madrid wait until 2025 for Davies, Ancelotti’s desire is to continue with Mendy. The Italian is a huge admirer of the left-back, who has enjoyed a solid calendar year so far.

Ancelotti has been signing praise of Mendy for a while now and everything suggests the Frenchman will remain Real Madrid’s first-choice left-back next season.

UEFA has announced its latest club rankings, based on the performance of each team in European competitions over the last five seasons, and despite winning the Champions League last season, Real Madrid trail Manchester City in these standings. 

It must be noted that the coefficients of these rankings are calculated purely on the basis of results in European competitions, without considering domestic league performance. The rankings are crucial as they determine the seedings in UEFA competition draws.

Top teams in UEFA rankings

This time, Manchester City haves outshone Real Madrid, topping the list with a coefficient of 123,000 points, while Real Madrid have 119,000 points. Bayern Munich complete the top three with a score of 108,000 points. 

Man City have been incredibly consistent since 2021, securing a Champions League title, reaching a final, and making it to a semi-final, which has propelled them to the top spot in the rankings.

The competition between Manchester City and Real Madrid has been intense, especially in the Champions League. The two giants of European football have faced each other in four knockout ties since 2020, each winning two ties. 

Their consistent performances have solidified their status as the current powerhouses of European football.

What about the other La Liga teams?

Spanish football, particularly La Liga, is well-represented in these rankings. Alongside Real Madrid, Villarreal, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona are notable mentions. 

Villarreal, on their part, are in the 7th place after winning the Europa League in 2021 and reaching the Champions League semi-finals in 2022. 

Atletico Madrid are positioned at 17th, just ahead of Barcelona, who is struggling to maintain its usual high ranking. 

Amidst all this, the English Premier League stands out as the dominant force in these rankings. Six of its teams are in the top 20, showcasing the strength and competitiveness of English football. 

The Italian League and the Bundesliga also have a strong presence, each contributing four teams to the top ranks.
