Real Madrid have seen their chances of landing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich afforded a major boost.
This comes amid widespread confirmation that the Canadian international has been placed atop the wishlist of Florentino Pérez and the powers that be at the Santiago Bernabéu.
To this point, all speculation surrounding the future of their defensive standout has been firmly rejected by Bayern, adamant that Davies will be going nowhere any time soon, but the German champions may ultimately be left with no choice.
As per a report from Marca, Davies has made clear to the board at the Allianz Arena that he has no intention of penning a new contract with the club.
This comes with the 23-year-old having his sights firmly set on a move to Real Madrid in 2024.
It is now up to Los Blancos and Davies alike to convince Bayern to give the green light to the transfer at the earliest opportunity.
