Over the years, Real Madrid have been known to sign some of the best performers from the World Cup immediately after the tournament. This time around, things might be a bit different though, considering that it will be tougher to make signings in the middle of the season. Yet, it is believed that Los Blancos are keeping a close eye on a number of players, who are representing their national teams in Qatar.

One area that Real Madrid could need to make an addition in in the future is left-back. Ferland Mendy is the starter there, but some questions have been raised about the Frenchman’s long-term future at Santiago Bernabeu.

Defensively, Mendy is very good, but there are question marks about his output on the other end of the pitch. He was not even included in the France national team’s World Cup squad. On top of that, he has had fitness issues over the years.

As reported by SPORT, Real Madrid’s coaches like Alphonso Davies a lot. They know it will be very difficult to sign him though. The Bayern Munich left-back has a contract until the summer of 2025 and his transfer value is rated at around €70 million. He is representing Canada at the World Cup.

Davies is someone who came out of the blocks in brilliant fashion and played a key part in Bayern Munich’s Champions League win a few years back.

As a result, he was already being considered as one of the best left-backs on the planet while still being a teenager. Since then, Davies has had to deal with fitness and health problems though, which have meant that his career has not taken off as well as it was expected to.

Still he is just 22 years of age and has all the attributes required to be one of the best left-backs in the world for the next decade to come.

His start to the World Cup campaign was not ideal though, as he ended up missing a penalty kick against Belgium, as Canada lost their opening game 1-0 despite being the better team on the day. They still have Croatia and Morocco to face in the tournament.
