Real Madrid baulk at €70m fee for explosive wide man – giving Chelsea a chance

Chelsea are monitoring Bayern Munich left back Alphonso Davies, Fabrizio Romano has exclusively reported today.

The Blues know that the Canada star is out of contract in a year’s time, as do his other suitors. Real Madrid are front of the queue, but this report says they’re not interested in paying the €70m Bayern would want to make a move happen this summer.

That creates a potential opportunity for us to steal in first – but are we willing to pay that money? Are we even able to?

It’s a painful situation being left picking up the scraps from Madrid, but it’s a problem of our own making.

Whether Davies’ potentially vast wage demands will even fit out new structure seems even more doubtful. Most importantly, it depends on how much we spend on a striker in the summer and what budget we have left over. With Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella on the books, it’s hard to see a third left back being added while there are so many holes elsewhere.
