Alphonso Davies holds Champions League trophy

As well as the joy of seeing their most famous Homegrown talent scale the heights of the European club game, the Vancouver Whitecaps will receive a sizable bonus payment thanks to Alphonso Davies' triumph in the Champions League final with Bayern Munich on Sunday.


Davies, 19, was an integral part of the Bayern team that lifted the European Cup after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in Lisbon less than two years after he left Vancouver for Bavaria.


Sources confirmed that Whitecaps FC will receive €500,000 ($590k) as part of the MLS record transfer.

Davies made eight appearances for Bayern in the Champions League this season, starting the quarterfinal, semifinal and final, and contributing four assists from his new left-back spot.
