Transfer news: Bayern Munich respond to Real Madrid interest in Alphonso Davies


Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has said the club have little interest in selling Alphonso Davies amid transfer interest from European rivals Real Madrid.

Davies rose to fame as a teenage prodigy in Major League Soccer with the Vancouver Whitecaps and moved to Europe with Bayern in January 2019 and has been a key player almost ever since – his successful 2019/20 season coinciding with Champions League glory. .

Even at the age of just 23, the Ghanaian-born Davies, whose family immigrated to Canada when he was five, can already lay claim to being the greatest Canadian player of all time.

Bayern were interested in securing Davies a new long-term deal. Real Madrid are monitoring the progress of his negotiations with the German giants, while Chelsea and Manchester City are also being kept informed of his situation.

Bayern are determined not to lose him, Hainer told reporters in Munich.

“He is under contract with us until June 2025, he is one of the best full-backs in the world. Of course we want to keep Davies and I hope he wants to stay too,” explained the president.

But Davies’ stay at Bayern is not yet clear. 90min reported at the start of November that the Bundesliga champions are worried about a move from Madrid in the summer, with Davies only having one year on his contract in Munich. As for Davies himself, he has been willing to negotiate with Bayern but is looking for a salary commensurate with his status as perhaps the best left-back in the world.

Madrid have been forced to regularly use Eduardo Camavinga as a back-up left-back over the past 18 months, something the Frenchman has openly admitted he is not too happy with. The Spanish giants would also be willing to make a move for Ferlando Mendy, who has often struggled with injuries since joining the club from Lyon in 2020. The foundations for Davies’ approach are laid.

The Canadian’s agent, Nick Huoseh, also recently raised the possibility of a move to Madrid.

“There is interest from many teams. I have read the same articles on the internet, but ultimately we will see what happens in the coming months,” Huoseh told 365 Scores recently. “I’m sure Real Madrid could be one of the clubs who would like to sign Davies, along with several clubs in the English Premier League. They all want to have one of the best left-backs in the world.”
