ALPHONSO DAVIES is tipped to become the world’s first £100m left-back if he leaves Bayern Munich.
But the Canadian super fast star may have signed the contract Premier League club in 2017 for a bargain 3 million pounds.
Davies, 21, is a talented youngster at the Vancouver Whitecaps and is scouted by top agent Dave Baldwin.
Swansea lead the race for the defender, who was recommended by Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson.
For the Swans, he seems like a great investment and will match their style when they’re in the top flights.
Crystal Palace also liked Davies – who also plays as a full-back – after watching him play for his club.
But Davies’ dream was dashed because of work permit regulations. He is a Liberian citizen who holds a Canadian passport.
Even the fact that he was selected as a top player for his age and secured a starting spot at the age of 16 did not help his transfer case.
Canada’s Fifa rating was too low and the fee and salary offered were not large enough to sway his application – so interested Premier League clubs walked away in disappointment.
In January 2019, Bavaria bought Davies for £10m with extras and he became one of the best left-backs in Europe.
