  • Alphonso Davies’ contract is set to expire in the summer of 2025
  • The full-back has attracted interest from Real Madrid
  • The Canadian defender has provided Bayern with a new contract condition

Real Madrid remain in hot pursuit of full-back Alphonso Davies. The Bayern Munich defender appears to be the name unanimously agreed on by the Spanish club’s hierarchy to anchor the left-back position for the coming decade.

However, amid Real Madrid's persistent interest, parent club Bayern Munich remains steadfast in its refusal to part with the talented defender.

Given the number of years left on Davies' contract, the Bundesliga club appear in a race against time to tie the 23-year-old to a new contract.

Initial discussions between Bayern and Davies had taken place in May, but negotiations were temporarily halted due to internal issues faced by the club, leading to a significant restructuring of its hierarchy.

Bayern had hoped to resume talks with Davies to extend his contract. Nevertheless, the player's representative, Nedal Huoseh, has presented new demands, hence complicating the negotiations.

Davies provides Bayern with contract condition

Reports from Diario AS indicate that Davies, currently engaged in talks with Bayern Munich regarding a contract extension, is now requesting an annual salary of €15 million.

This figure poses a considerable challenge for Bayern, especially considering that Davies and his representative initially sought €12mil before Real Madrid entered the fray.

Spanish outlet Relevo adds that Real Madrid's hierarchy views negotiations for Davies as 'very advanced,' expressing strong optimism that Bayern's reluctance to meet his €15mil salary demands will work to their advantage.

This situation prompts Real Madrid to pursue the sale of French full-back Ferland Mendy actively, anticipating Davies to assume the role from the next season onward.

Sports Brief in a previous report highlighted that Bayern Munich have announced the contract extension of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

While many Bayern fans are pleased with the club's decision to retain their captain, some have mixed reactions to the unconventional manner in which Neuer's contract extension was announced.

The club took to social platform TikTok, posting a video where the 2014 World Cup winner was constructing a brick wall alongside second-choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
