Real Madrid has identified a replacement for Dani Carvajal

According to reports, Real Madrid is interested in signing Kyle Walker from Manchester City to bolster their right-back depth. Walker gained notoriety during his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur when he made 229 appearances (in all competitions) and contributed four goals and twenty assists. He joined Manchester City for £45 million in 2017 and has since become one of the best defenders in Europe.

With the Cityzens, the Englishman appeared in 249 games, contributing six goals and eighteen assists. His most recent game came in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when he played a key role in his team’s 4-0 thrashing of Real Madrid at the Etihad.

Real Madrid’s Dani Carvajal is still their starting right back, but they want to strengthen that position with a new signing this summer. Tomás González-Martn, a Spanish writer, reports that the team views Walker as a defensive anchor. To further strengthen their roster, the La Liga powerhouses are reportedly considering re-signing right back Fran Garcia from Rayo Vallecano.

It has been speculated that Real Madrid would also want to add depth at left back, in addition to the right back position. Alphonso Davies, a defender for Bayern Munich, reportedly caught their eye. As a result of his success with Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Davies was able to sign a 13.5 million transfer to Bayern Munich in 2018. His 153 total appearances for the club in all competitions are impressive given his young age (22 as of this writing).

Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Real Madrid, has been forced to utilise midfielder Eduardo Camavinga out of position due to an injury to first-choice left-back Ferland Mendy for most of the 2022-23 season.

Sky Sports Deutschland’s Florian Plettenberg says it won’t be simple for Real Madrid to convince Bayern to sell Davies. He said that Los Blancos were interested in the young defender from the Bundesliga, but added that the big clubs there had no intention of selling.
