What will become of Süle, Gnabry, Coman, Tolisso?

BWhen it comes to winter transfers, the bosses of FC Bayern are rather bored. Hasan Salihamidzic announced even before the January market opened that nothing special would happen to the future German ten-year long-time champion with a view to the second half of the season. “That is not an issue at all. Our squad is top-notch, ”said the sports director.

Oliver Kahn’s board of directors will still have to tackle tricky and pressing personal issues in the first few months of 2022. The prize question for the Bundesliga autumn champions is: What will become of Niklas Süle, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman or Corentin Tolisso? Shaping the future will definitely be expensive. And that in hardly calculable times. “As a football club, we also manage a two-year pandemic,” warns CEO Oliver Kahn. The new year continues because of the omicron variant with ghost games. At FC Bayern, an empty arena means a loss of 3.5 million euros per home game.

This makes it difficult to set the goal of retaining more people in their mid-twenties such as Gnabry (26), Coman (25) and Süle (26) for a longer period after the expensive extensions with the executives Joshua Kimmich (contract until mid-2025) and Leon Goretzka (2026).

After the Austrian David Alaba, who went to Real Madrid last summer, national defender Süle and the former 41.5 million euro record transfer Tolisso could go free at the end of the season. That would be annoying. Süle has stabilized his performance under coach Julian Nagelsmann again. But he is also said to have a weakness for the English Premier League. Nagelsmann speculated that “there is a market” for the angular central defender. Kahn was reluctant to comment on Süle’s whereabouts: “It is important that we find a basis where it can work for both sides.”
