Alphonso Davies and his mentor(is asked by Davies and his parent to be his agent) pick Bayern among PL clubs. His mentor made the right choice.https://utdreport.co.uk/2020/07/29/...-pulisic-and-alphonso-davies-recommendations/
And its from the scout himself, so honestly doesn't shock me if its been happening this entire time, because they aren't big name big money players that Woodward loves.
"I met with one or two other clubs, but speaking with the Bayern guys and seeing their plan I thought it was the best place for Alphonso. Honestly, I was being offered things that guys might jump on but Bayern had a small squad, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben were retiring, and it was just a good fit," Huoseh told Sky Sports and added:
"One of the English clubs, I asked about their plan for Alphonso, and they said they might put him with the second team, or send him on loan because they weren't sure if he would get a work permit.
"But with Bayern, it wasn't just a phone call. It was a PowerPoint presentation, put together by [chief scout] Marco Neppe and [sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic. They showed his position on the field, where he was going to play, they showed how they had 19 players in their squad, play 50 something games a year, play a lot of matches a year and the average player plays 80 per cent of the matches."
