Manchester City have sent scouts to watch Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies. Fabrizio Romano reported of the European champions keeping an eye on the Canadian international during a recent Livestream on his exclusive Kick channel.
When asked if Manchester City had any interest in signing Davies the transfer expert said: “I can tell you that Manchester City in the last two years have always been in attendance to keep an eye on Alphonso Davies. He’s a player they always appreciated, but as we mentioned before, Real Madrid are pushing and they really want the player. Man City have sent their scouts multiple times to see the evolution of Alphonso Davies as one of the best full-backs in the world.”
City sending scouts to monitor Alphonso Davies isn’t a major surprise. The youngster has become one of world football’s premier left-backs since bursting onto the scene at Bayern Munich. With left-back being a position that City haven’t had a specialist in for some time a potential move for Davies would fill a need for Pep Guardiola’s squad.
Fabian Delph and Olexander Zinchenko have both become left-backs for Pep Guardiola in recent times. The pair both become important ingredients of successful City sides playing out of position during their time at the club. Nathan Ake became City’s left-back of choice during last season’s treble-winning campaign and was one of the club’s most important and consistent players last season. Josko Gvardiol joined the club from RB Leipzig in the summer and has slotted in superbly playing primarily at left-back.
If Alphonso Davies does become available there is little doubt that Manchester City would be interested. They would face a battle with Real Madrid to secure the Canadian’s signature as reported by Romano.
