The tug-of-war between Bayern Munich and Alphonso Davies continues. The Bundesliga champions have been trying for months to reach an agreement with the Canadian winger, who is wanted by Real Madrid, to sign a new contract beyond 2025, but they are not willing to go all out for him. That’s what the German daily “Sport Bild” reveals, explaining that Bayern will not succumb to the player’s salary demands and will not do crazy things to keep him.
Davies’ entourage has made it clear to Bayern that his signature depends on a significant salary increase that would place him among the highest-paid players in the squad. The former Vancouver Whitecaps player wants to double his salary to earn between 13 and 14 million euros, a figure that Bayern would not be willing to meet.
The roadmap for the six-time European champions is clear: if the player does not back down, the Allianz Arena club would agree to sell the winger in the summer to avoid the risk of losing him for free in 2025.
However, Bayern will do everything possible to ensure that the negotiations with him and his agent Nedal Huoseh are successful. Sporting director Christoph Freund confirmed that they will resume talks soon: “There have been speculation for a long time. Phonzy has a contract with us until 2025 and I am convinced that he is very happy to play for Bayern,” the Austrian said, adding: “We would like him to stay at Bayern for a long time. We will keep talking.”
