Bayern Munich are at a contractual crossroads with their young star Alphonso Davies, and Real Madrid are monitoring the situation closely and looking to strengthen their defense. As Sport Bild reports, the 23-year-old Canadian full-back has put the demand for a significantly higher salary on the table as a condition for extending his contract at the Allianz Arena, which currently expires in June 2025.
Davies, who has emerged as one of the most promising players in his position, is aiming to catch up with Bayern’s highest-paid players, who earn around €15 million gross per season, AS newspaper reports. In the past, the Bavarian club tried to ensure Davies’ continuity by offering him €12 million a year, but talks stalled following the departure of sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
Now Christoph Freund, his successor in office, faces the difficult task of reaching an agreement with the Canadian player, who insists on a salary increase. Although Bayern will do everything they can to keep Davies, they know that Real Madrid’s interest represents a huge temptation for both the player and his agent Nedal Huoseh.
Huoseh expressed his admiration for the White club, highlighting its 14 Champions League titles and expressing his pride at Real Madrid’s interest in his client. Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel has supported Davies as an undisputed regular player and has placed contract negotiations in the hands of the club’s sporting management.

Real Madrid, in turn, are targeting Davies as part of their strategy to strengthen the left-back position, a tradition that includes legendary figures such as Roberto Carlos and Marcelo. With the support of coach Carlo Ancelotti, the Merengue club hopes that Davies’ contract situation will develop in a similar way to that of Toni Kroos in 2014, when Bayern accepted a transfer at a reasonable price due to his expiring contract.
