Verbal agreement with Real? Davies continues to play poker with Bayern

Alphonso Davies

Bayern left-back Alphonso Davies has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for some time now. Following recent reports of dwindling interest from the Champions League finalists, the Canadian and the Whites are now said to have reached a verbal agreement.

After Alphonso Davies let what was probably his last contract offer from FC Bayern slip a few weeks ago, it seems clear that the Canadian will not be extending his contract in Munich. While Real Madrid’s dwindling interest was recently reported, the Spanish portal Relevo has now made it clear that the failure of the Spanish capital’s endeavours was part of the strategy.

According to the report, Real merely took a break in their efforts to sign Davies in order to lower the price of the left-back. The closer the end of the contract approaches, the more the price of the 23-year-old drops. In addition to the time factor, the Canadian’s inconsistent performances could also ensure that the transfer fee continues to fall. Madrid are planning to pay between 30 and 35 million euros. According to the report, a verbal agreement has already been reached between Davies and the Whites, giving them the opportunity to play „with Bayern’s fear“.

If Davies leaves: Will Theo Hernandez join FC Bayern?

If Alphonso Davies does indeed move to Real Madrid in the summer, FCB already have a replacement up their sleeve, according to Spanish newspaper Marca. Theo Hernandez, whose brother Lucas was already under contract in Munich from 2019 to 2023, could move to the Isar from AC Milan.


Sky also confirmed the information that the German record champions are interested in the French left-back, but clarified that there is neither a full verbal agreement with the player nor an official offer to the Rossoneri. Hernandez’s market value is estimated at €60 million by Transfermarkt.de. However, it has also been reported that Milan would only consider selling the 26-year-old for between 80 and 100 million euros.
