Bought by Bayern Munich as a future replacement for Frank Ribery, the young Alphonso Davies could become the first Canadian super star in Europe. We have taken a look at his development in Football Manager 2019. Is he worth to buy?
In the first two seasons Alphonso Davies will be unavailable for a transfer. He is currently under contract at Vancouver Whitecaps, but has a fixed transfer to Bayern Munich on 1/1/2019. If we take a look at his career over ten years (below in the overview of his full career), we see that he will struggle at Bayern to claim a first team spot. That will probably be in your favor. You will probably have to pay around 25m to 35m for him after the first few seasons. That seems to be a reasonable fee.
Alphonso Davies is a left-footed left winger, who is also natural as a left midfielder. Seeing his age, you will be able to re-train him to become a left-footed right winger.
Looking at his attributes he has the potential to become a really dangerous winger. Seeing he has a huge amount of flair, we suggest you should use him as left winger with an attacking duty. That way he will be further up the pitch, attacking his direct opponent with his speed and skills.
