The news is particularly bitter for Julian Nagelsmann, as Lucas Hernandez is another candidate for the left-back position. The Frenchman will probably be absent until mid-August after his meniscus tear. Davis’ failure is also a major blow to Canadians, as he remains one of the great artists among North Americans.

FC Bayern will have to make amends at the start of the season – but sporting director Hassan Salihamidzic has cautioned for the matter and still has some up his sleeve. If Hernandez and Davis fail, it may be time for Omar Richards. The 23-year-old Englishman was recently signed by Reading FC and will be the logical replacement for the left.
