German Bundesliga giants FC Bayern München have secured the services of one of football’s most sought-after young talents after reaching an agreement with Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Major League Soccer (MLS) to sign 17-year-old Alphonso Davies. The Ghana-born Canadian, who turns 18 on November 2, will officially join the German record champions’ first-team squad from January 1, 2019. His contract runs until June 30, 2023.

“Alphonso Davies is a very big talent,” declared FC Bayern Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic. “At the age of 17, he offers a lot of promise for the future. Alphonso already possesses great ability, which is why a lot of top clubs were keen on him. I’m delighted he’s chosen FC Bayern.
