Despite Real Madrid’s persistence, Bayern Munich are not ready to give up on their 23-year-old left-back, Alphonso Davies yet.

In fact, the director of the German team, Max Eberl has said that although he has not spoken to the player about a new contract, he is feeling hopeful.

Speaking about the same, Eberl has said that the Bavarians won’t give up on their pursuit.

“I haven’t spoken to Alphonso Davies about the new deal yet. But I always have hope, the story is still open. I won’t give it up,” he told Maximilian Koch.

Real Madrid’s interest in signing Davies is no more a secret. The record European champions reportedly have a verbal agreement in place with the Canadian, but settling on a transfer fee is proving to be difficult for the parties involved.

As reported before, Bayern Munich want at leasts €50 million for Davies, but considering the fact that his current deal runs out in 2025, Real Madrid are only willing to offer €35 million with some conditional add-ons.

Now, it is no secret that amidst Real Madrid’s interest, Bayern Munich are working on their part too. It has been learned that the Bavarians are not in favour of losing him and for that, they are working on a deal of their own.

Since he only has a year left of his deal, Bayern want to tie him down and while the player would be willing to commit his future, the only hindrance that is stalling this negotiation is the player’s extravagant salary expectation of €20 million per year.

At Bayern, they are absolutely not willing to match these figures and if nothing pans out, they might be forced to sell him this year rather than lose him for free in 2025.

Right now, everything related to the Canadian is uncertain and we might have to wait until the season ends to see how the story unfolds.
