The upcoming summer transfer window is crucial for Bayern Munich in terms of building a squad that can enjoy sustained success on the pitch over the next few years. Along with addressing key areas by signing new areas, Bayern also needs to secure the future of key players in the summer.
Alphonso Davies is one of the players that is expected to hold talks with Bayern Chiefs in the summer. The Canadian full-back has two years left on his contract. Earlier this season, Davies was linked with a move to Real Madrid. Bayern doesn’t need to worry in his case for now, but talks need to accelerate in the summer.
According to TZ (via iMiaSanMia), Alphonso Davies is ready to sign a long-term deal. The Canadian full-back is not considering a move away from Bavaria in the summer. Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has already held talks with Davies. More talks over a new deal are expected to take place over the summer.
Davies has not been scintillating for Bayern this season, but he continues to deliver consistent 7/10 performances week in, week out. He is still 22, which bodes well for Bayern, as his best years are ahead of him. Considering how expensive full-backs are in the current market, it is crucial for Bayern to secure his long-term future.
Along with Davies, Bayern also wants to tie down Jamal Musiala on a long-term deal. The young attacking midfielder has a contract until 2026, so there is no immediate concern about his future. However, the Bavarian club considers Davies and Musiala as the face of Bayern for many years, so they want to secure their futures as far as they can.
Talks with Davies and Musiala will take place over the summer. Both players will heavily feature in the preferred starting XI of Thomas Tuchel. The German coach will look to maximize the skill set of both players once he finds the right system for Bayern during the summer.

Apart from Davies and Musiala, Bayern will also try to conclude contract talks with Lucas Hernandez during the summer. The French defender is eager to stay in Bavaria, and the German club also wants him to spend his peak years in the Bundesliga.
Bayern will also try to extend the contract of Benjamin Pavard. The French defender wants to play regularly in the center-back position. Pavard featured regularly in central defense during Ruckrunde. He will need assurances about his role going forward to sign a new deal. If there is no agreement with Pavard, then Die Roten may consider selling him in the summer.
