Alphonso Davies is likely to become one of Real Madrid’s main focus areas once they complete the deal to sign Kylian Mbappe in a free transfer this summer.

The club are looking for a fix in the left-back unit, especially amid uncertainty over the future of Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia.

Davies has emerged as an ideal target, with Real Madrid ready to take advantage of his tense relationship with FC Bayern right now.

Davies’ current deal in Bavaria expires in 2025. He is regarded as one of the most impactful players in Bavaria, but the Canadian international has appeared reluctant to sign a new deal.

This has caught the attention of Real Madrid, who are prepared to take advantage of a potential market opportunity this coming summer.

Bayern director confirms renewal talks with Davies

However, in what could be a possible blow for Real Madrid, it appears Alphonso Davies’ renewal at Bayern Munich has not been completely ruled out.

This has been confirmed by Bayern’s director Christoph Freund, who has stated that Bayern are in talks with the Canadian international over a new deal, while also refusing to rule out an extension.

“It’s not unlikely at all. There are talks and the talks are good and open. We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks,” Freund told Victor Catalina (h/t Fabrizio Romano).

A worrying sign for Real Madrid?

Davies’ maintaining contact with Bayern over a new contract is certainly a cause for concern for Real Madrid.

However, it must be noted that Los Blancos have made significant ground, in their bid to sign the left-back. The player, for his part, does not seem all too enthusiastic about prolonging his stay at Bayern and is open to new challenges.

That means unless Bayern Munich offer an extremely lucrative contract, Davies will continue to stall and may eventually agree a deal with Real Madrid.

One thing Real Madrid should be worried about is Davies’ price tag. The club are reportedly unwilling to pay the player’s €60-70 million and as long as Bayern’s valuation does not reduce drastically, a Davies deal is unlikely to be considered by the board.

Real Madrid ace misses training for third consecutive day ahead of UCL final

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
