Alphonso Davies is just 21 years old, but has become an indispensable regular at FC Bayern Munich. Now the left-back is said to be on Real Madrid's list.
In January 2019, Alphonso Davies moved from MLS Vancouver Whitecaps to FC Bayern Munich as a promising talent. At the time, the young Canadian was regarded as the successor to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben and was supposed to bring a breath of fresh air to the wings of the German record champions.
But when Niko Kovac ran out of defenders and he pushed David Alaba into the center in his last game as Bayern coach, the fast winger had his moment. FC Bayern lost 5-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt and Kovac had to resign the next day, but under his successor Hansi Flick Davies became a regular player and was set as a left-back.
The journalist José Félix Díaz reports on the Marca Twitch channel that Real Madrid is dealing with the lightning-fast full-back. Davies is the player from the FC Bayern squad that the Madrilenians have "most" targeted.
However, it should be difficult to tear the Canadian away from FC Bayern Munich. After all, the 21-year-old is still under contract on the Isar until 2025.
