Bayern Munich make record bid for MLS wonder kid Alphonso Davies

Canadian teenage star Alphonso Davies sat out the Vancouver Whitecaps' 2-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Globe and Mail, Davies will be officially absent from the Whitecaps' next MLS match, with the team's permission. Sources say that multiple Premier League clubs have expressed interest in Davies, but the player might have difficulty getting a work permit to play in England.

The two sides are meeting in Canada on Sunday with a deal expected to be reached, according to Bild.

That will set a new record fee for a player leaving the States for Europe, beating the 10m U.S. dollars that Villarreal paid for Jozy Altidore 10 years ago.

Alphonso Davies is a target for Bayern Munich.

Davies, a midfielder, has three goals and eight assists in 20 games with Vancouver this season. Kicker reported on Monday that because of his age, any official signing would have to wait until January. Should the deal go through, it would be a record transfer fee received by any MLS team since its inception in 1996.

Six-time defending Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich are by far the most decorated team in Germany, perennial UEFA Champions League contenders and one of the most recognizable clubs in the world.
