Days after reportedly seeking Kylian Mbappe’s pre-commitment,Real Madrid sets $53 million cap for Bayern Munich star

Real Madrid are not stopping as the Spanish team continues to monitor the transfer market. They are trying to further reinforce the team with additional superstars in every position. President Florentino Perez is attempting to recreate the ‘Galacticos’ team he created back in the 2000s.

After the transfer of Jude Bellingham, the team already has many talented young players. Federico Valverde, Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni, and others are proof of that. And it now looks like Santiago Bernabeu could welcome two more players.

Real Madrid demands Mbappe’s assurance for swift transfer

A tale as old as 2017, Real Madrid are still confident of signing Kylian Mbappe. It was close to happening in 2022 on a free transfer, but Mbappe signed a contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain in the last moments. This summer, the Frenchman confirmed he won’t be extending his contract, meaning he could leave for free in 2024, with Madrid his strongest destination.

However, Madrid and specifically President Perez have learned their lesson from the previous time. Clearly, Perez does not want Madrid to be ridiculed again like last time and this time he wants a guarantee from the player. Already, reports have suggested that representatives from Madrid have informed the 24-year-old of their desire to sign him, but that he has to agree to a free transfer in 2024 with no other transfer drama. There is also talk that they will demand a hefty compensation fee to make sure that Mbappe does not dare to reconsider any other clubs.

While many clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea interested in him, it seems that Mbappe desires to finally move to Madrid. It is the club of his life, having been a fan of them for a long time. It finally looks like Madrid is getting their long-awaited prize, and that too for free.

Madrid’s $53m ceiling in pursuit of Alphonso Davies

But Real Madrid are not stopping at Mbappe, as they have also targeted Bayern Munich’s Canadian left back Alphonso Davies. The rumor has been around for a long time, with the player unhappy at Bayern due to limited game time.

According to Bild, the Spanish giants, however, will only pay a transfer fee up to the $53 million mark. This is because the current contract of the player ends in 2025, and discussions over a new contract have been stalling.

The wingback’s agent also wants the move to Madrid, and since Davies refuses to sign a new deal, Bayern may have to let him leave for a small fee to them. But the Spanish giants will have fierce competition from Manchester City, who are also interested in the player. They will also be ready to pay more than $53 million for Davies, which makes Madrid’s stance difficult. Only if the player tries to force a move will Bayern consider Real Madrid’s offer.

The future of Real Madrid is certainly bright, with the club ready to bring in and welcome more superstars. It seems that fans of the 14 time UCL champions would be able to witness the makings of another ‘Galacticos’ team should they be able to land the named players successfully.
