Florentino Pérez is willing to include a player in the deal to make it happen.
Alphonso Davies is now Real Madrid’s top priority. Even though all the attention is on Kylian Mbappé, Florentino Pérez is still working hard to sign the Canadian.
Even the improvement in Mendy’s performance in recent matches hasn’t changed Madrid’s plans. They’re going to go all-in for Davies, taking advantage of his situation.
Davies’ contract expires in 2025, and Bayern Munich is becoming less optimistic about renewing him. They’ll keep trying, but if they can’t reach an agreement, they’ll sell him this summer.
Florentino knows that Bayern will make it tough. They want to get a good return on their investment, and they’re going to ask for a high price to let Davies go.
That’s why the Real Madrid president is willing to include a player in the deal. That would help the Spanish club get a better price.
According to Bild, the player in question is Rafa Marín. The center back is on loan at Alavés, but he’ll return to Madrid next summer. Ancelotti will have to decide what to do with him.
If Ancelotti doesn’t want Marín, the Real Madrid could include him in the deal to sweeten the pot for Bayern. They know that would help lower the price of Davies.
