Contract talks between Alphonso Davies and Bayern Munich are getting “complicated”

This isn’t too good of a sign for Bayern. They might wind up selling Davies over the summer.

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies has a contract that is set to expire in 2025, but it is not exactly smooth sailing right now. There have been indications from his camp that there would be hesitations in signing a new deal, and his agent has been open about the fact that he wants to entertain interest from clubs abroad, which there are a handful of. Real Madrid, in particular, are very keen on trying to sign Davies this coming summer.

Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund has stated that he has already begun speaking with Davies’ agent about a contract extension, but per information from Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg (via @iMiaSanMia), things are starting to get “complicated” with his contract. Plettenberg also reports that, if a new deal is not struck and Bayern gets the impression he does not want to extend, then he will certainly be a candidate for sale this summer.

Bayern Munich is now in the crucial window of deciding whether or not they will ultimately sell him. If they get the signal that he wants to be sold and not extend his deal, they will want to sell him during the summer window before it gets closer to the end of his current deal, potentially driving his price down. They will want to fully capitalize on a profit from his sale to guarantee an ample replacement being lined up.
