Should Alphonso Davies really leave FC Bayern for Real Madrid, the Bavarians would have to look for a new left-back. Ian Maatsen, who currently plays for Borussia Dortmund, could be a candidate. Bayern would apparently be in a good starting position in the race for the Dutchman.

Ian Maatsen could be a possible successor to Alphonso Davies at FC Bayern. The Dutchman currently plays for Borussia Dortmund, but is only on loan to BVB until the end of the season. The 22-year-old is under contract with Chelsea FC.

Bayern’s interest had already been reported previously, but according to BILD, no talks have yet taken place. But: According to the report, Munich would be in a good starting position with Maatsen. According to the report, the left-back is enthusiastic about the Bundesliga and would like to stay in Germany. Good prerequisites for playing for the German record champions.

Maatsen has an exit clause with Chelsea

Maatsen’s contract at Chelsea runs until 2026, but there is apparently an exit clause of around 41 million euros. Apparently too much for Dortmund, who are actually very happy with Maatsen’s performances.

Should Bayern really decide on Maatsen as their preferred candidate for the left side of defence, the transfer fee would certainly not be an unaffordable sum for FCB.

Maatsen moved from PSV Eindhoven to Chelsea’s youth programme at the age of 17. Prior to his loan to BVB, he had already been loaned out to Charlton Athletic, Coventry City and Burnley FC.

Theo Hernandez from AC Milan has been mentioned several times as another possible successor to Davies. However, the brother of former Bayern professional Lucas Hernandez could be significantly more expensive than Maatsen. According to various media reports, Milan would even demand between 80 and 100 million euros for the 26-year-old Frenchman.
