Real Madrid to target full-backs this summer

It has already been a busy summer for Real Madrid, and this trend is likely to continue. The blockbuster arrival of Jude Bellingham has caused a stir in the football world, it is confirmed that Joselu will be announced by the club next week. And of course, the never-ending saga of Kylian Mbappé continues.

Los Blancos have once again been linked with Canadian left-back Alphonso Davies, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic reveals. Madrid will only attempt to sign the Bayern Munich player if Ferland Mendy is sold over the coming weeks. This is not the first time that Real Madrid have been linked with Davies.

Davies could have represented Madrid’s rivals Barcelona, before being rejected by Bartomeu due to his nationality, the player claimed. 

Cortegana additionally reports that Carlo Ancelotti is looking to sign a player that is versatile enough to play left-back and right-back. The candidates are PSG’s Achraf Hakimi, previously of Real Madrid, and João Cancelo, who is also a target of Barça.
