Everything is going according to plan for Real Madrid president Florentino Perez

“A verbal agreement has already been reached for Alfonso Davies to join Real Madrid,” the global publication The Athletic reported on June 26, adding that “the only difference is whether the transfer will take place in the summer 2024 or winter 2025 transfer window.”

Alfonso Davies is a young fullback born in 2000 who is a tremendous workhorse and makes his presence felt in both attack and defense. He joined Munich from the Vancouver Whitecaps in the 2018-2019 season and has been the club’s first-choice fullback since then, making 180 appearances in all competitions.

However, Davies is set to leave Munich. According to local German media, “Davies’ future at Munich is unclear. According to reports from various media outlets, sporting director Christoph Proint and Davies’ agent Nick Husse held a meeting last week to discuss the player’s future.”

“A move to Real Madrid is being considered and Davies is currently sidelined with a ligament injury,” the report added.

In fact, Spain’s Sport1 reported that “Davies has reportedly reached an agreement with Real Madrid. According to ‘Spiegel’, he has already agreed a transfer and salary with Real, while according to ‘Sky Sports’, the transfer fee is up to 50 million euros ($72.1 million).”

“To fill the void left by Davies, Munich signed Raphael Geheiro from Borussia Dortmund before the start of the season. To prepare for Davies’ departure, the Bavarians had been eyeing Luca Hernandez’s younger brother Theo Hernandez before the start of the season, but Theo is contracted to AC Milan until 2026.”

As such, Davies’ move to Real was in the balance. In fact, Real have been in talks with the player for several months and have already finalized the move. In fact, Davies’ name is on the verge of being written on the left fullback position, a position Real have been without since Marcelo.

Now all that remains is how the transfer will happen. Davies is likely to follow in the footsteps of two players who joined Real from Munich in the past. “Davies will have to decide whether he wants to leave on the cheap with a year left on his contract, like Tony Cross did in 2014, or leave on a free transfer like David Alaba did in 2021,” The Athletic explained.

The Athletic added: “Davies wants to stay at Real despite interest from PL big clubs and FC Barcelona. His original club, Munich, want to re-sign him first, but if that fails, they will be forced to sell him,” emphasizing that “for Real, Davis is a ‘now or never’ situation.”
