A New LB Has Appeared
With the looming potential departure of Ferland Mendy and Fran’s early skittish performances, Flo and the board seem determined to purchase a new LB by next season. First on the list is Alphonso Davies who seems open to joining Real Madrid as he delays renewing his contract with Bayern Munich. Will he join the ranks of Toni Kroos and Alaba as recent Bayern to Madrid departures?

Alphonso Davies has "no problem playing at left-back" if he were to sign for Real Madrid, per source. He wouldn't demand to play any other position. (Seen some fans express this concern).— Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) November 9, 2023
Mbappe This. Haaland That. Kane Whatever...maybe it’s actually Endrick + Marcos Leonardo time? Writer’s Note: I legitimately know nothing about Marco Leonardo. I watched a few highlights and it’s clear he’s a finisher, but I can’t tell anything else of significance about his game. If the prices named are true, he may be worth the risk.
Many thought Rafaela Pimenta’s attendance at the Bernabeu last night was in relation to Haaland.— Managing Madrid (@managingmadrid) November 9, 2023
Instead, it looks like she is acting as intermediary for Fernando Brito, Marcos Leonardo’s agent, both of whom were pictured together at the Bernabeu last night.
