Real Madrid closing in on Girona star amid uncertain future for Alphonso Davies plan

Introduction to the article: Real Madrid’s Transfer Priorities for 2024

Real Madrid’s Defensive Revamp

Real Madrid is reportedly planning to make a key transfer move for a new defender in 2024, with Yan Couto being a primary target. The club is considering a revamp at right and left back positions for the long-term, with Dani Carvajal currently the first choice on the right and a potential move for Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich for the left.

Competition for Alphonso Davies

Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies remains a target for Real Madrid, but the Bundesliga club has offered a higher salary than what Real Madrid has put forward. The Canadian international is set to be out of contract in 2025, and Bayern Munich is eager to retain him in their squad. However, Real Madrid is also eyeing a potential move for €10m-rated Yan Couto, who is currently on loan at Girona from Manchester City.

Yan Couto’s Status

Yan Couto, who has yet to make an appearance for Manchester City since his arrival in 2020, is set to reject a contract extension at the club. His loan spell at Girona has elevated his status, with the Catalans leading the title race. If Couto rejects City’s offer, Girona will make a permanent bid for the 21-year-old, but Real Madrid is also expected to show interest in securing his services.
