Liverpool are ‘interested in signing’ a £189,000-per-week Bundesliga star, but they are concerned that a rival has already secured his services
According to the publication, the Reds have joined Manchester City and Chelsea in their pursuit of the Canadian international, but there are worries that the player has already selected where he will play next.
Davies is reported to favour Real Madrid, therefore there is little anticipation that he will end up at Anfield or another English team at this time.
The fullback’s agency has disputed that a move to Spain is in the works, but the prevailing consensus is that a move to the Bernabeu will take place next summer.
Why is Davies considering leaving Bayern?
The 22-year-old was on the verge of signing a new deal with the Bundesliga winners when CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic were fired earlier this year.
New executives have been appointed, although it is thought that conversations about extending his £189,000-a-week term beyond 2025 have been unsuccessful. If Davies does not agree to a new contract, Bayern will be compelled to sell him at the conclusion of the season.
Why was Liverpool attempting to sign Davies?
Andy Robertson turns 30 in March, and with Davies over 8 years younger than the Scotland captain, the Canadian was most likely regarded as a long-term successor.
Kostas Tsimikas is a capable backup, but he lacks the capacity to be Liverpool’s main left-sided defender. Because he is already 27, his career at the highest level will not go as long as Robertson’s. If Davies cannot be signed, the Reds will begin their search for a replacement.
