Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies has admitted that Man Utd defender Luke Shaw is ‘clear’ of himself, meaning that he thinks he is clearly better than him.

Shaw enjoyed a splendid 12 months, by far the best of his career. He was a standout for Man Utd as they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League, runners-up to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, and runner-up at UEFA EURO 2020 with England.

Davies on the other hand endured a slightly less colourful season as he struggled for a first-team place ahead of Lucas Hernandez. In the year prior, Davies enjoyed a mainstay role in the Bayern Munich treble-winning side as well as a spot in the UEFA Team Of The Year squad. 



Davies was full of praise for the Man Utd and England man. Davies said on his official TikTok account:

“I just saw one that was like ‘Luke Shaw is clear’. What does that mean? Someone explain to me. I never really understood that – clear of what?”

He then read out a reply in the chat: “That means he’s better.

“Ohhh! Ohh, OK, I get it now, it means he’s better. Yeah, I mean, he is, he’s a really good player!

“Alright, so every time you say like ‘Luke Shaw is clear, Robbo [Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson] is clear, that means he’s better’. OK, makes sense, makes sense.”

Shaw is finally living up to the £30m price tag the Red Devils paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014. He saw a relatively established name around Europe in Alex Telles come in to which he took this as a challenge and beat it in convincing style.

Telles seems to be already ready to move on from Old Trafford just one year after he joined and that’s very much down to the form and exemplary fitness of Shaw.

Man Utd are active in the transfer market with incoming and outgoings, the big news right now is Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane who are the marquee targets for the club this summer.

Examining Harry Kane and that £160m Sun claim

Harry Kane to Manchester City for … The post Examining Harry Kane and that £160m Sun claim appeared first on Football365.

Examining Harry Kane and that £160m Sun claim

The first thing to say about this Harry Kane story in The Sun is that it’s objectively funny that a showbiz reporter has produced the football transfer scoop of the summer just by going to a wedding at which the groom was using his nuptials to share the news that his brother (Harry Kane) had been given the go-ahead to leave for £160m by Daniel Levy. That the newspaper’s actual football reporters then had to write as if that were all unquestionably true – regardless of their own contacts – makes that doubly funny.

We have that all the particulars seem believable, but what The Sun’s story stops short of saying – either by accident or design – is whether City are actually going to spend that £160m. And that’s quite important. It seems that Clemmie Moodie either did not ask or was not told that information.

Obviously that does not prevent a sub-headline of ‘City set for £160m deal’ on the front page of The Sun, which . She then writes that ‘ENGLAND skipper is poised for a £160million move after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy agreed to let him join an English rival’. Hmmm. This is beginning to sound like one of those celebrity ‘hall passes’ that smug married couples give each other to allow a fantasy night with Megan Fox or George Clooney.

She adds that he is ‘set to join Manchester City’ and on the inside pages, she writes that Kane ‘told of his joy at the pending £160million Man City move’. We cannot help thinking that Kane might have told of his joy a bit too bloody soon as Tottenham are .

The real amusement comes from looking at the sports pages, where the journalists battle manfully on with this indisputable information, despite it not really making any sense. So Martin Blackburn’s back-page exclusive talks of a ‘£225m summer spree’ for Kane and Jack Grealish alongside the revelation that Kane ‘is poised for a British record £160million move if Daniel Levy rubber-stamps the deal’.

Couple of things:

1) Mediawatch suspects there are bigger ‘ifs’ here…like ‘if make a £160million offer…’.

2) Good luck getting Jack Grealish for £65m.

Also, ‘Bernardo’s up for sale to fund rest of Kane bid’ is a hell of a reach from ‘Bernardo seems most likely to make way’.

On the inside pages, Paul Jiggins is here to write about the ‘news Tottenham fans have been dreading’.

‘Their chairman’s acceptance of defeat in his battle to keep the England captain has realised their worst fears – and shown how far the North London club has fallen in the last couple of years.’

And yet it was Jiggins – in partnership with Duncan Wright – that that ‘Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has placed a massive price tag on the Prem’s 22-goal top scorer’ and that price tag was named (by them) as £150m. Now you are acting surprised in July when Levy reportedly agrees to sell for £160m? And it’s a sign of how far Tottenham have fallen? Something does not quite make sense here.

‘Of course, there are still plenty of hoops still to be jumped through before Kane can seal the transfer he desperately wants to Manchester City in his pursuit of honours’.

You don’t say. Like the small matter of Manchester City offering to pay £160m, perhaps? That might be a pretty high hoop.

‘But the biggest one was navigated when Levy told his star player he is now looking for the right fee, instead of a reason to keep him.’

Nah. That’s not the biggest one. And you literally wrote two months ago that Levy would sell for £150m, when he was also presumably ‘looking for the right fee’.

‘Kane’s departure is now inevitable…’

Is it though? It doesn’t feel inevitable. Tottenham have told everybody who will listen on Friday that Kane is staying, while there is no indication that City have actually made a £160m bid.

Indeed, this is what Pep Guardiola said :

“At the prices we are not going to buy any strikers, it is impossible, we cannot afford it. It’s impossible.

“All clubs are struggling financially, we are not an exception. We have Gabriel [Jesus], Ferran [Torres] who has been incredible in this position, we have young players in the academy, we play many times with a false nine.

“I don’t know what is going to happen. Maybe we’re going to buy but maybe we’re not going to buy a striker for next season. Today there is more chance we aren’t going to buy a striker for next season.”

And we are supposed to believe just a few weeks later that City have agreed to pay £160m? Over double their transfer fee record?

Of course, no reports of an actual bid are not stopping others writing as if that is now a matter of record…

‘Tottenham respond to Harry Kane £160m transfer bid from Man City with clear stance’ (Express website)

Elsewhere, the news is not quite official but close…

‘Transfer news LIVE: Paul Pogba set to leave Man Utd as Man City ready £160m Harry Kane bid’ (Mirror online)

And were we being a little naive to think that local paper Manchester Evening News would be able to tell us something other than that what is in The Sun…

‘Man City transfer news LIVE City ‘set for £160m Harry Kane deal’ and Grealish ‘agrees personal terms”

Somebody is going to wear out their ‘ key.
