Again and again contract theater with the German record champions!
For months, Bayern have been trying to extend the contracts of their top performers. In vain. Both top striker Robert Lewandowski (33) and winger Serge Gnabry (26) hesitate to sign.
In “Stammplatz”, the daily football podcast from BILD, Bayern insider Christian Falk reveals why the negotiations are so difficult for the champions. One reason: the salary structure has gotten a little lopsided.
Falk: “A third of the squad is now in the highest earner class. Of course, that arouses desire. You can sell a high salary to Lewandowski, he’s the best player in the world. Manuel Neuer (36) is the best goalkeeper in the world. Thomas Müller (32) is unaffordable for Bayern anyway, but there are now too many in this salary bracket.”
A big problem for the Bayern bosses, which they noticed with Niklas Süle (26). The central defender will move to Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer after the season. Falk continues: “He also looked at the performance on the pitch and then asked himself why he only earned about half that of Lucas Hernandez (26).”
National player Serge Gnabry should also ask himself this question when he compares his payroll with that of his competitors Leroy Sané (26) and Kingsley Coman (25).
In addition, the Bayern insider talks about the transfer rumors about Sadio Mané (30) and Konrad Laimer (24) in the new episode.
