As will be the case with Liverpool, it is set to be a period of change and upheaval at Bayern Munich in the summer.

It has already been announced that current Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel will vacate his position at the end of the season.

Furthermore, many players like Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies have blurry futures in Bavaria, and will likely not appreciate the continued change of coaching staff.

In fact, it has been reported that left-back Alphonso Davies is nearing a move to Real Madrid.

It’s believed that the Canadian international has already verbally agreed terms to join Real Madrid, but no deal has been struck between the two European giants.

The record Bundesliga champions are aware that Davies could leave the club in the summer, and have been scouring the market for potential replacements.

As a result, the Bayern Munich have identified Liverpool’s own Andy Robertson to replace Davies should a move to Spain materialize.

This is according to Simon Jones of the Daily Mail, who reports that Bayern are aware of how tough of a task it would be to persuade the Scotland captain to leave Anfield.

Robertson joined the club from Hull City back in 2017 for a reported fee of £8m – a figure that would turn out to be an absolute steal for the 29-year-old.

Although he initially struggled under Jurgen Klopp, he soon became a key member of some of the best Liverpool sides over the years.

Despite turning 30 next year, those in Munich believe that Robertson still has plenty to offer and could match the energy and work rate that Davies provides down the left-flank.

Jurgen Klopp could change Robertson’s view

Andy Robertson has been faithful servant to Liverpool since his arrival and it is well-known how much he loves the club.

He is part of Jurgen Klopp’s leadership group for this season, and is an important part of how the Reds want to play.

However, the German is leaving at the end of the season, with next season and the direction the club is going is not yet clear.

The Scotsman still has two years left on his contract but is approaching a time where he will want clarity over his own future in regard to his contract situation.

Therefore, Bayern Munich’s interest will certainly give Robertson something to think about heading into the summer.

A footballer’s career does not last forever, and Robertson’s next contract will likely be his last big one in Europe before age eventually catches up to him.
