Manchester City utterly dominated Real Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg at the Etihad Stadium, winning 4-0 to book a place in the finals.

The Cityzens, who enjoyed 60% possession, attempted 16 shots, eight of which were on target.

The team from Manchester opened the scoring through Bernardo Silva in the 23rd minute before the Portuguese doubled the lead minutes before half-time. Defender Manuel Akanji made it three while substitute forward Julian Alvarez delivered the final nail in the coffin.

While it was a disappointing night for Madrid, not all love was lost between the two teams. Vinicius Jr., who is used to getting the flake from the fans and the opposition players constantly in La Liga, shared a humorous moment with Pep Guardiola for a change.

As caught by Movistar Plus+, Guardiola humorously asked the Brazilian, “Vini, Vini, are you guys gonna play?”

To this, the forward replied, “Yes, yes, in just a little bit,” before the City manager chuckled and said, “Yeah, sure…”

After the conversion, the two were seen engaging in a friendly high-five before sharing a burst of laughter. The game moved on and so did Manchester City. 

As for Real Madrid, they just could not deal with their hosts on Wednesday night as Bernardo Silva opened up their defence with relative ease on a regular basis.

The Portuguese exploited the pockets of space to mere perfection. As seen in the first goal, his clever moment allowed him to go one-on-one against Thibaut Courtois while his presence of mind put him exactly in the right spot for the second goal.

Madrid, on the other hand, hardly troubled Ederson. Apart from Toni Kroos’ belter from distance, the Man City keeper was hardly tested throughout the contest. Safe to say City were the better side and deserved the win.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
