Chelsea’s pursuit of Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies seems to have hit a roadblock. Reports suggest that Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with the player. Although no deal has been agreed with Bayern yet, the German giants may be forced to sell the Canadian international due to his contract expiring next summer.

Davies, 23, has been on Chelsea’s radar since November, with journalist Simon Phillips previously claiming the Blues’ interest. However, it now appears that Real Madrid are the frontrunners for his signature, with a potential move to the Spanish giants either this year or in 2025.

Chelsea’s need for a left-back has been evident this season, with injuries to Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella, and centre-back Levi Colwill being deployed in that position. However, it seems that Davies will not be the solution for Chelsea’s left-back woes.

Real Madrid: An attractive option for Alphonso Davies

Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have an exciting young team, including the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Jude Bellingham, and Vinicius Junior. This makes them an attractive destination for Davies. Mbappe’s reported agreement to join Real Madrid in the next transfer window only adds to the club’s appeal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s recent performances have been underwhelming. They lost to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final and currently positioned in the bottom half of the Premier League. This could potentially sway Davies’ decision in favor of Real Madrid.

For Chelsea, the search for a left-back continues, with Chilwell and Cucurella currently being the main options. Levi Colwill has been filling in at left-back. He may have the opportunity to return to central defense permanently, especially with Thiago Silva’s contract expiring in the summer.

In conclusion, while Chelsea’s pursuit of Davies may be coming to an end, the club will need to explore other options for their left-back position. With Real Madrid closing in on the Canadian international, Chelsea may have to look elsewhere to strengthen their squad for next season.
