Real Madrid are considering a high-profile move for Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Spanish champions are weighing up their options as they look to strengthen the left-back position currently occupied by only Ferland Mendy after Marcelo’s departure.
Nacho Fernandez and former Bayern man David Alaba are more than capable of deputising for Mendy on the left side, but both are better off as centre-halves.
Garcia came through the youth ranks at Real Madrid Castilla and first joined Vallecano on a season-long loan deal before making the move permanent last season.
He wasted no time establishing himself at Los Franjirrojos, making 39 appearances in all competitions and contributing a goal and an assist.
This term, the 23-year-old has picked up where he left off last season, featuring 14 times for Vallecano. Although he is yet to open his goalscoring account, he has already recorded two assists.
Like Garcia, Gutierrez also came through Madrid’s academy, but unlike his compatriot, he made his debut for Los Blancos and featured three times before joining Girona.
Since joining the Blanquivermells, the 21-year-old has impressed across his 15 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with three assists.
Both academy products are options for Madrid, who could exercise the chance to bring either back to the Santiago Bernabeu at affordable prices, but a move for Davies is still on the cards.
Davies’ contract with Bayern expires in 2025, and although the Germans will be reluctant to let the 22-year-old leave the Allianz Arena anytime soon, it will take a sizable fee of around €70 million for negotiations to begin.
