FC Bayern has been associated with a commitment from Sasa Kalajdzic for some time. For a long time, the 24-year-old was considered the “preferred candidate” to succeed Robert Lewandowski. According to current reports, the Munich team has now refrained from signing the ÖFB kicker. However, the search for a new striker continues.
As the “Abendzeitung München” reports, the Austrian is no longer an issue at Bayern Munich. Accordingly, Kalajdzic would only have been interesting as a back-up solution if Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting had left the club in the summer. According to the “AZ” reporter Maximilian Koch, the Bayern bosses did not trust the Stuttgarter with the role of Lewandowski’s replacement.
According to “BILD” information, Bayern were not in pole position anyway in the competition for the striker. Kalajdzic is reportedly on the verge of a move to West Ham United in the English Premier League.
Bayern continue to explore the transfer market
What is interesting, however, is that, as the “Abendzeitung München” claims to have learned, Bayern are still exploring the transfer market in search of a new striker, should Robert Lewandowski say goodbye in the summer. In this case, however, it should be a “bigger caliber” than Kalajdzic.
Appropriately, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic made it clear yesterday that Munich have not yet completed their transfer activities: “We are in June right now. Of course we will keep our eyes open and see what is possible and what our financial possibilities allow us,” he emphasized at Sadio Mané’s introduction to the player. According to the Bosnian, the people of Munich still have one or the other idea ready. However, this must also be financially viable.
