In just one day, Real Madrid will be presented the opportunity to put a bow on their campaign.

Taking on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final, the Merengues face the prospect of lifting their 15th European title.

Now, Spanish national team coach Luis de la Fuente has touched upon Real Madrid’s prospects in the final, giving his take on who is likely to emerge victorious via Mundo Deportivo.

Siding with Real Madrid

Luis de la Fuente acknowledges that declaring an outright winner in such a high-stakes clash is difficult.

However, he believes that predicting the winner becomes somewhat easier when Real Madrid is involved because of their unique capabilities and history of success.

“Making predictions when the two best teams in Europe are playing in the final, because they have earned the right to be there, is really difficult,” he remarked.

“But, respecting all the clubs, it’s less difficult when Real Madrid is there, because nobody can do what they do.”

“The experience they have and their footballing potential, despite the fact that they have a great team in front of them, invites us to think that they can win the fifteenth,” the Spain manager added.

De la Fuente added that he would personally be rooting for Real Madrid and hopes the final will live up to the billing.

I want Real Madrid to win and I hope it will be a great final for the spectators. It would be difficult for Real Madrid to escape this final,” he remarked.

Dani Carvajal, Joselu, and Nacho Fernandez have all been called up, with Luis De la Fuente banking on Los Blancos’ veterans.

Other Spanish players at Real Madrid including Fran Garcia, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Dani Ceballos, and Lucas Vazquez found no place on the team.

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.
