Florentino Gives the Green Light: Swapping a Madrid Defender for Alphonso Davies, and It’s Not Mendy

Ferland Mendy’s prominence is increasing as Real Madrid looks ahead to the summer of 2024. Some reports even claim that Real Madrid will swap a defender for Alphonso Davies, but it won’t be the Frenchman.

For a new player to join, another must exit. According to Fichajes.net, Florentino Pérez has given the green light for the board to swap a Real Madrid defender for Alphonso Davies. What seemed like Ferland Mendy a few weeks ago is now leaning toward another name, a revelation Carlo Ancelotti hinted at weeks ago.

Beyond the Kylian Mbappé situation, Real Madrid has been working for months on the operation to bring in the left-back from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2024. While many initially considered Ferland Mendy as the primary collateral damage in this operation due to his contract ending in 2025, the focus has shifted to different timelines.

This shift points to Fran García. The former Rayo player might not have met expectations in his first year with Real Madrid. Fichajes.net suggests that a departure beneficial to all parties might be sought. In recent weeks, Mendy has stepped up, combining with Ancelotti’s system, leading him to stand out. While there’s no disappointment, there is fierce competition that will continue until June.

Ancelotti, a key ally, has even gone on record saying, “He is the best left-back in the world defensively. He can improve going forward, and sometimes he shows that, like in the match against Atlético.” These statements indicate that Mendy is gaining importance for a squad that may not see his departure even with Alphonso Davies joining.

The day-to-day performance will determine the outcome, and it remains to be seen how the rest of the season unfolds for both Fran García and Ferland Mendy as they compete to be Alphonso Davies’ potential partner if the Canadian can leave Bayern Munich in the summer of 2024. For now, this chess match seems to be favoring the Frenchman.
