Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with the Bayern Munich star to join either this summer or next summer

Real Madrid have made a significant move in the transfer market by reaching a verbal agreement with Bayern Munich's left-back, Alphonso Davies, as reported by The Athletic. 

This deal marks a pivotal moment for Los Blancos, who have long shown interest in the Canadian defender, whose contract with Bayern is due to expire in 2025.

Intensified Negotiations

The pursuit of Davies has been on Madrid's agenda for some time, but recent weeks have seen a notable intensification in discussions between the player's management and the club. The breakthrough in negotiations has led to an agreement that could see Davies join Real Madrid either as a free transfer in 2025 or potentially in 2024, should the Spanish giants negotiate a transfer fee with Bayern Munich.

The exact fee Madrid might pay remains unclear, yet given Davies' contractual situation, it's anticipated that Real Madrid could secure his services for less than his current market value. Bayern Munich, keen on retaining one of their key players, is still trying to persuade Davies to renew his contract. Failing that, the German club is prepared to sell him this summer to ensure they receive a transfer fee.

Beating the Competition

Real Madrid's successful negotiation outpaces rival interest from Barcelona and several Premier League clubs, positioning Davies for a move to the Spanish capital. His preference for Madrid, combined with the anticipated signing of Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappé, underscores Carlo Ancelotti's ambition to bolster his squad significantly, making Real Madrid a formidable contender in European football.

This strategic acquisition not only strengthens Real Madrid's defensive lineup but also sends a clear message to rivals, both domestically and across Europe, about the club's intentions to continue competing at the highest level. As Real Madrid and Bayern Munich work towards finalizing the deal, fans and pundits alike will eagerly watch how this transfer saga unfolds and its impact on the involved clubs' fortunes in the coming seasons.
