However, details have emerged from SPORTbible that the starting line-up of the Bayern Munich side vs Lyon costs just £90million to assemble.

19-year-old Canadian star Alphonso Davies was a product of what has been branded 'shrewd business' as he was gotten for just £9 million, while £7.5million was paid to buy Serge Gnabry.

For more context, Barcelona forked out £120 million to sign Philippe Coutinho who scored against them in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Alphonso Davies failed in his quest to get Lionel Messi’s shirt following Bayern Munich’s 8-2 thrashing of Barcelona to knock the Spanish giants out of the Champions League.

The Catalan giants were thoroughly humiliated 8-2 by a ‘well-oiled German machine’ in the form of Bayern Munich as they succumbed to yet another heart-breaking exit from the Champions League for the third successive season.

Alphonso Davies who earlier claimed that Messi was his childhood hero had the task of stopping the multiple Ballon d’Or winner – and he did in style with Barcelona badly battered.
