Bayern Munich reportedly target Andrew Robertson amid uncertain Alphonso Davies future

Andrew Robertson’s journey to the summit of elite football has been incredible. From Dundee United to Hull City to Liverpool, his story is one of wit, resilience, and determination—the type you only see in footballers with monster mentalities. It’s just good to see how much his sacrifices have paid off in recent years, especially with Liverpool.

Although injuries have hampered his progress in recent seasons, there’s no doubt that, on his days, he’s one of the best full-backs in the game; no wonder why he has such a lovely relationship with Jurgen Klopp. His skills have made him a target for a certain German club, who may swoop in for him this summer.

Bayern Munich eyeing Andrew Robertson to replace Alphonso Davies

The sad reality for Bayern Munich, whether they like to admit it or not, is that the summer will kickstart a period of transition for them. It may work out well in a few years, depending on how they choose to rebuild the team. One thing is certain: some people will not be there at the end of the season, including Alphonso Davies.

The young full-back has been a target for Real Madrid, who have lacked a regular left-back since the departure of Marcelo. Davies has reportedly agreed to personal terms with Los Blancos, and although both clubs are still quite far apart in their respective valuations of the player, coming to terms on a reasonable fee won’t be an issue, as Real Madrid are looking to build a proper winning team next season.

This leaves Bayern Munich in a difficult spot, and they’ve been identifying some targets to replace the outgoing Davies. Names like Joao Cancelo and Theo Hernandez have popped up, but any deal may cost the club a fortune. Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson is the latest name to be linked with a summer move to Germany. The Scot has shrugged off injury problems in recent weeks to return to form for Liverpool, picking up his first trophy of the season against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final a few days ago.

With Klopp leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, it’s been revealed that some of the players may leave as well, as they may not want to go through another long transition period with another manager.

Andy Robertson vs Alphonso Davies: comparing the left backs by numbers

Andrew Robertson and Alphonso Davies are incredible football players whose career stats and numbers speak volumes about their passion for the game. Robertson, 29, clearly has more experience than Davies, 23, but their career stats are not that far off. Both players are Champions League winners, with Davies winning the infamous European title one season after Robertson had won it with Liverpool.

Andrew Robertson boasts a superior record over his Bayern Munich counterpart in terms of numbers. The Scot has 64 assists and nine goals for Liverpool in 282 appearances, making him one of the defenders with the most assists in the Premier League, with 58 of those assists coming in the league. On the other hand, Alphonso Davies only has 28 assists and nine goals for Bayern Munich in 180 appearances.

Davies still has more than enough time to beat Andrew Robertson’s numbers, considering how incredibly young he is compared to the Liverpool defender. Also, his potential move to Real Madrid, where he could link up with Kylian Mbappe, would greatly increase his numbers.
