On Tuesday, Munich will travel to Lisbon, where they will compete in their third group game of the Champions League at Benfica on Wednesday (9 p.m., DAZN). Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic is apparently working on a major transfer before this game.

He could soon sign one of the most promising young stars in Europe: Bayern are probably negotiating Karim Adeyemi’s move from RB Salzburg to Munich. And competes for the striker with Borussia Dortmund. The adviser to the 19-year-old attacker was on Saturday with Adeyemi’s father Abbey for talks with FC Bayern at the club’s premises on Säbener Strasse. Sky posted a photo of the two in front of the club’s office.

Adeyemi transfer could be expensive

Adeyemi became a national player in September, the new national coach Hans-Dieter “Hansi” Flick had him play three times for Germany so far, Adeyemi scored one goal. In 2018, Salzburg signed the then 16-year-old for more than three million euros. His contract there is valid until June 30, 2024.

His long-time sponsor Manfred Schwabl reckons that Adeyemi will be “expensive” when it is likely to be available in the summer of 2022. The president of SpVgg Unterhaching, who describes himself as a “mentor in the background” at Adeyemi, estimated the transfer fee for the TV broadcaster BILD to be “upwards” at 30 million euros. He sees “no striker in Germany” who has a goal rank similar to Adeyemi.
