Alphonso Davies Expresses Desire to Join Real Madrid: A Game-Changer for Los Blancos?
Amidst earlier speculations that Real Madrid’s interest in Bayern Munich’s left-back Alphonso Davies had waned due to a lack of transfer activity, recent developments have taken an unexpected turn. The Canadian defender has now signaled his willingness to join Real Madrid during this summer’s transfer window.
In a surprising move, Alphonso Davies has conveyed his desire to play for Real Madrid. As reported by Defensa Central, the 22-year-old left-back has confirmed to Real Madrid that he is genuinely interested in transferring to the Bernabeu-based club. Davies, who plays on the left flank, has expressed enthusiasm about the prospect of playing alongside stars like Vinicius Junior, Jude Bellingham, and even Kylian Mbappe – the latter of whom is highly likely to join the royal ranks of Real Madrid this summer.
Davies is under contract with Bayern Munich until 2025, and his representatives have recently acknowledged that negotiations with Bayern regarding a new deal have stalled. Consequently, the Bavarians can only retain the player for an additional season at most if they don’t want to risk losing the Canadian star in the 2025 summer transfer window.
Real Madrid’s interest in Alphonso Davies has been long-standing, and upon receiving signals from the Canadian defender, Los Blancos are considering reinitiating negotiations with Bayern. Originally, the royal club intended to sell Ferland Mendy and then acquire Davies. However, given Mendy’s recent injury, Real Madrid might struggle to offload him at the moment. Therefore, if facing difficulties, Los Blancos might opt to pursue Davies next summer, as his contract with Bayern will have just one more year left. With Alphonso Davies on board, Real Madrid would undoubtedly possess a formidable left flank, especially since they already have the in-form left-back Vinicius.
Aside from Real Madrid, Manchester City is also keen on acquiring Bayern Munich’s left-back. At the Etihad Stadium, manager Pep Guardiola finds himself grappling with the left-back position following the departure of Joao Cancelo. In certain matches, he has resorted to deploying Bernardo Silva due to a lack of alternatives on the left flank within City’s defensive lineup.
