Carlo Ancelotti perfectly understands that Florentino Pérez ‘s priority target is Kylian Mbappé . Real Madrid lacks a striker after the departure of Karim Benzema and the chosen one is the PSG star , who was able to land at the Santiago Bernabéu last summer.
The problem is that for the Italian coach there is another position as or even more important to strengthen, that of the left side.
Ancelotti has been asking for a first-class left-back for some time, as Ferland Mendy is unreliable due to injuries, David Alaba is only looking at him as a center back and Fran García is too green.
For the Italian, Mendy is dispensable, while the player to be signed should be Alphonso Davies , Bayern Munich player .
It’s no secret that Real Madrid have been following Davies for some time, but he has to go step by step.
The priority target is Mbappé and all the money left in the coffers will go towards dressing the French striker in white.
Alphonso Davies is an option, but Florentino Pérez sees him as more feasible for next summer.
The Canadian ends his contract with Bayern Munich in 2025, so the summer of 2024 would be the time to try to sign him.
Germany, in fact, already points to a possible offer of 40 million fixed plus 10 in variables.
In Real Madrid, yes, they know that Bayern Munich is experiencing a strange summer in which they are trying to revolutionize the squad. Joshua Kimmich , without going any further, is on the market, while Sadio Mané will pack his bags.
The Bavarian club will give everything to sign Harry Kane and it is not ruled out that they will also put Davies up for sale.
Only in this case will they try to sign the Canadian, since when the full-back is on the market, Madrid will be the first to go for him.
Ancelotti, therefore, will have no choice but to continue one more season without strengthening the sides.
For the right he only has Dani Carvajal , very prone to injuries, with Lucas Vázquez as the only substitute, in addition to the versatile Nacho Fernández .
For the left back, for his part, Ancelotti will have to pray that Mendy does not get injured, because if he doesn’t he will have a serious problem.
Last year he had to change his position in Camavinga , a decision that he will not repeat now, as he wants it as a pivot.
Fran García, who has performed very well at Rayo Vallecano, is a melon to open and Ancelotti does not like unnecessary risks.
