One of FC Barcelona's biggest regret is definitely ignoring Alphoso Davies when he was still playing in the MLS. Ex-president Josep Bartomeu passed on Davies because of his Canadian nationality, a decision which later bit them back in Lisbon as Bayern Munich demolished Barcelona 8-2. The Canadian defender had a major role to play in the catastrophe.

The Canadian left-back has a framed photo of Messi picking him up from that match. This just shows his love towards the best player in the world. The defender has also spoken up about the rejection on many occasions where he claimed that it hurt him.

What's done is done. Now, Davies will be joining La Liga not as a Barcelona player, but he will be wearing the Los Blancos shirt. It's crazy how one rejection from the Catalan giants changed the Canadian.

At any rate, the Blaugranes aren't keen on making the same mistake again. Barça has got a young Ghanian left-back on trials who is said to be the next Alphonso Davies. According to Mundo Deportivo, Ghanian youngster David Oduro is on a European trial tour with Chelsea, FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

The 17-year-old has already trained with The Blues and the Londoners are keen on having him. David is now on trials with FC Barcelona and his next destination is probably Bayern Munich where Lothar Matthäus got him a call.

Origins of the Ghanian

David Oduro plays for Accra Lions FC of Ghana. The Ghanian club is owned by the German football legend Lothar Matthäus, who says that he has invested in a business model where he'd like to get young footballing talents to Europe.

Lothar is the one who has deemed the Ghanian youngster as the 'next Alphonso Davies'. He also described him as a very fast footballer with interesting attacking qualities.
