Alphonso Davies

Postby aterford » Sat Jul 21, 2018 5:59 am

Haven't seen a thread on this guy yet, so apologies if there's one floating out there somewhere.

According to The Athletic:

Alphonso Davies is close to making what would be a record-setting transfer deal for MLS, sending the young Canadian attacking talent to one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Multiple league sources tell The Athletic that the Vancouver Whitecaps are “close” to a deal that would send Davies to Bayern Munich. The deal, one source said, includes a base fee around $12 million (U.S. dollars) and could rise from there with add-ons and clauses contingent on performance.


The facts:

Name: Alphonso Boyles Davies
Date of Birth: November 2, 2000
Age: 17
Place of Birth: Buduburam, Ghana
Height: 1.78m / 5' 8" (per Transfermarkt; 5'11" or 1.81m per team website)
Main position: Left wing

6 caps/3 goals for Canada
68 appearances, 7 goals, 10 assists for Vancouver Whitecaps (MLS)
No player has completed more dribbles in MLS this season.
Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool, PSV all have shown interest.

Missed training on Friday and status for Saturday's (7/21) game is listed as "unknown" - no reasons were given for his absence in training or as to his game status.
I know many don't think much of MLS, fair enough, but this kid is really quite talented. The fee is good...would be a great move, IMO

Very interesting to watch. This could be a great signing and a real find. Really looking outside the "usual box".

I hope they really check his age before signing, we have seen so many of these "17 year olds" wonderkids born in Africa

Is this our shopping list? We already have Fruchtl, then close to sign Arp, close to sign Davies. Besides, I remember us being linked with Vincent Thill

I’ve watched him play for Canada a few times during the gold cup, and he really is the future of Canadian football. As a Canadian, I’m really happy about this potential move and what it could mean for football in Canada, as well as raising Bayern’s profile in this country (no one I know supports Bayern or watch the bundesliga). Davies does have potential to be a top class player.

You’d think the club was poor or struggling the way they always try to penny pinch and are now risking losing out on young talents over such little transfer fees
