8 February 2024 - 4:26 am

Fichayes mentioned in a recent report that Real Madrid are facing stiff competition from Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies. Los Blancos are reportedly considering making a move to secure the Canadian star’s services next summer.

Davies has impressed in the Bundesliga this season

This season, Davies continues to perform at a high level on the left side of Bayern Munich’s defense. The Canada international has made 26 appearances in all competitions for Germany this season, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

The 23-year-old averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.4 clearances, 0.5 shots, 1.5 key passes and 2.6 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga, with outstanding performances in both halves. In the German Bundesliga, he has a pass success rate of 89.3% (data from whoscored) and he even looked clean when passing the ball down the left wing.

His current contract at the German club expires in the summer of 2025, which could open the door for Real to sign him for a lower fee next summer.

Real Madrid are facing stiff competition for Davies: is he worth fighting for?

Davis is a tough defensive player who is able to time challenges well and regain possession of the ball for his team in the half-court. When his opponent takes the initiative, he will not hesitate to neutralize the danger.

The Canadian phenom is a great ball-carrier and can create some promising chances for his teammates. He can also score from the left wing and create his own goals. Davies primarily plays at left-back but can also play on the left wing if needed.

We can expect him to improve the quality of Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti’s starting XI. He will be an upgrade to Madrid club Fran Garcia and Ferland Mendy. He is, therefore, well worth playing for Real Madrid and Ancelotti should therefore go all out to get a deal done for the Canada international at the end of the season.

Davies, 23, has a bright future and would be an excellent signing for the Madrid giants in the long term.
