Manchester United have reportedly invited highly-rated Vancouver Whitecaps youngster Alphonso Davies for a trial with the club.
Alphonso Davies is said to be interesting a number of Europe’s top clubs but Adam Cook of CTV Edmonton claims that the Whitecaps are yet to give their approval to the move.
Davies made his debut for Vancouver Whitecaps in MLS at the age of 15 and is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in North America.
And he has already made his mark on the international stage with a series of impressive displays for the Canada senior team in last summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup.
He has scored three goals in six games for his country, finishing the tournament as joint-leading scorer and being named in the competition’s best XI.
Davies’ road to the MLS has been a difficult one, as explained by The Sun’s Duncan Wright: “He was born in a refugee camp in Ghana after his parents fled the civil war in Liberia.”
