Bayern eye audacious move for Liverpool ace Andrew Robertson

Bayern eye audacious move for Liverpool ace Andrew Robertson

Bayern Munich are weighing up an ambitious move for Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson, the Daily Mail reports.

The Bundesliga champions are braced for the departure of Alphonso Davies, who is poised to join Spanish leaders Real Madrid either this summer or when his contract runs out in 2025.

Bayern were keen to hang on to Davies, who also has potential suitors in the Premier League, but they are struggling to match his lofty wage demands.

The contract dispute has left the door open for Madrid to pounce, and the Spanish juggernauts are widely reported to have reached an agreement with the pacy Canadian left-back.

Bayern want a full back of similar quality to replace Davies and have shortlisted a couple of high-profile names, including Liverpool stalwart Robertson.

The Scottish defender joined the Reds from Hull City for a bargain £8 million and has established himself as one of the best left-backs in world football.

Robertson is one of the leaders in the Liverpool dressing room, and while Bayern recognise the mammoth task required to lure him away from Anfield, the German champions are willing to try.

There is plenty of uncertainty at the Merseyside club, with Jurgen Klopp set to leave at the end of the season while Jorg Schmadtke will also step down from his role as sporting director.

Klopp’s imminent departure has also led a couple of key players, including Reds skipper Virgil van Dijk, to reconsider their future, and Bayern believe it could be the right time to tempt Robertson with a fresh challenge.

Robertson turns 30 next month, but despite his age, Bayern are convinced he would give them a similar energy and balance down the left-hand flank to Davies.

Robertson has two years left on his Liverpool contract and is approaching a critical juncture in his career at Anfield, but the club is hugely unlikely to sanction a summer exit for such a key player.
