The Toronto Sun reports that Vancouver Whitecaps’ 17-year-old Ghana-born Canadian winger is on Real Madrid’s radar, with several other European clubs also interested.
Real Madrid’s current policy of snapping up the world’s top young talents has led the LaLiga giants to target Vancouver Whitecaps starlet Alphonso Davies, according to a report in Canada.
The name Alphonso Davies became one worth remembering when he debuted in MLS at the tender age of 15 and now Real Madrid are said to be among the teams chasing the teenager.
The Vancouver Whitecaps forward, who was born in Buduburam, a refugee camp in the Gomoa East District of Ghana is wanted by a number of European clubs from Bayern Munich to Liverpool, PSV Eindhoven and Manchester United.
Indeed, the form shown by Davies in his 52 MLS appearances – which have brought two goals and seven assists – has seen him win six international caps for Canada, having been handed his senior debut in a June 2017 friendly against Curaçao.
Canadian newspaper The Toronto Sun also place Madrid as being interested in the 17-year-old, just six months after Barcelona snapped up another starlet from the region, Ballou Tabla.
The Spanish giants faces stiff competition for Davies’ signature, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and PSV Eindhoven also thought to be keeping tabs on the youngster.
Davies debuted with the Canada national team in 2017 and netted three times during that year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, reaching the competition’s quarter-finals.
