Bayern Munich wing-back Davies has no Man Utd regrets

Bayern Munich wing-back Alphonso Davies has no regrets resisting a move to England.

Davies was offered trials by Manchester United while with Vancouver Whitecaps, but eventually signed for Bayern in a £9m deal.

The Canada international recalled to the Daily Mail: "I know there were rumours about England.

"I know different teams had approached my agents. My full focus at the time was Vancouver and trying to get into the play-offs.

"Behind the scenes, my people were dealing with it so I didn't need to think about it a whole lot.

"Teams approached my people and they relayed the messages to me. We sat down with Bayern Munich and as soon as I heard them, there was no hesitation that I wanted to join this team.

"I love playing for this club. Being so young and coming here so early is even more of a motivation."
