Bundesliga: Lewandowski, Man, Gravenberch… this is the revolution that is coming at Bayern

Last season didn’t turn out the way Bayern wanted. The Bavarians won their tenth consecutive ‘Salad Bowl’ (minimum required for a club that is a giant in Germany) but were shipwrecked in the Cup (the ‘Gladbach’ thrashed them (5-0) falling in the second round for the second season in a row) and in the Champions League, where Villarreal knocked them out against the forecast in the quarterfinals, the same stay in which PSG beat them in 2021.

The Julian Nagelsmann’s first course at the head of the ‘Bavarians’ was not brilliant and the two signings that he brought from RB Leipzig (Upamecano (42.5 million euros) and Sabitzer (15) underperformed. The most expensive coach in history (25 ‘kilos’) fulfilled without more. extreme that has led them this summer to remodel a team that is having (and will have) many entrances and exits.

The ‘Lewandowski case’ conditions everything

The future of the Golden Boot and top scorer in the Bundesliga conditions everything. The great Bayern star of the last eight years wants to leave a team with which he has a contract until 2023. “I still have a year left, that’s why I have asked the club for the go-ahead for a transfer. I think that in the current situation it is the best solution, especially since the club can still receive money from the transfer. I don’t want to force anything”, once en ‘Bild’ lowering the tension a bit.

Lewandowski: “My cycle at Bayern is over”

Called up with Poland for the Nations matches in June, ‘Lewy’ was more forceful: “My story at Bayern is over, I don’t want to play there anymore”, “something has died in me, I just want to leave”. Nonetheless, the conversation he had in Mallorca with Hasan Salihamidzicthe club’s sports director, has relaxed a situation that seems doomed to his departure from the Allianz Arena. Barcelona is the desired destination for the ‘9’ and the Barça club is working to make an operation economically viable what could reach up to 40 million euros (Bayern asks for 50). But in the meantime, the Bavarians are on the move.

Man for ‘Lewy’ and play without a ‘9’ top

Uli Hoeness has faith in the project. “I think the new team is working very hard. If everything that was presented to me comes out, I see a good possibility that we will have an attractive team next season … with Lewandowski“, the former president highlighted on ‘Sport1’. However, given the possible departure of the Polish striker, Bayern have already tied up Sadio Man.

The Liverpool winger, who also ends his contract in 2023 as ‘Lewy’, change Anfield for the Allianz Arena in an operation that will cost around 40 ‘kilos’. At 30 years old, the Senegalese winger, who has acted as a center forward in the last part of the course in Klopp’s ‘red’ trident along with Salah and Luis Dáz, will shape a very fast Bavarian attack with Coman and Gnabry. With no chance of signing Haaland and with Lewandowski looking for a way out, Nagelsmann is preparing to play without a top ‘9’ this season…even though he can sign a classic center forward like Sasa Kalajdzic (Stuttgart). If a ‘ram’ arrives or the Pole follows, the Senegalese will play thrown to a band.

Gravenberch y Mazraoui ‘in’, Sle, Roca y Tolisso ‘out’

Ms all of Lewandowski and Man, Bayern has moved in other demarcations. He has ‘fished’ for the future at Ajax by signingRyan Gravenberch ($18.5 million) Already Noussair Mazraoui (free). The 20-year-old Dutch midfielder, one of the most promising in Europe who stands out for his quality and physical power, will give a boost to a spinal cord that has lost Marc Roca (transferred to Leeds for 12 ‘kilos’) and to Tolisso (has not been renovated). And the 24-year-old Moroccan right-back comes to take over a demarcation in which Pavard has not performed well in 2021-22 and the young (22) Stanisic has not settled down yet.

The Frenchman will move to the center of the rear to complete with his compatriots Upamecano, Lucas Hernndez, Nianzou and the American Chris Richards (with offers to go on loan) a battery of towers that, according to ‘Bild’, will not have new parts despite the march of Sle al Borussia Dortmund. The news could come soon in the middle with Laimer (25-year-old Austrian midfielder for RB Leipzg). It is the great objective that the technical secretariat led by Salihamidzic now has after securing Gravenberch, Mazraoui and Man.

Renewals and departures

Bayern, except for Lewandowski, renewed their backbone last year. Neuer (2024), Miller (2024), Kimmich (2025), Coman (2027) and Goretzka (2026) they extended links secured before for Musiala (2026), Davies (2025), San (2025), Stanisic (2025), Pavard (2024), Lucas Hernndez (2024), Nianzou (2024)… The other key piece without him It’s Gnabri. The German winger will be free in July 2023 and the Bavarians are working on his renewal. They do not want another ‘Alaba case’. At 26, the former Arsenal player is a sought-after footballer and aspires to an important contract in Munich.

In addition, Sabitzer, Zirkzee and Sarr could leave the team as has already happened with Marc Roca (Leeds). All movements to make Bayern ‘scare’ again in Europe. Oliver Kahn, CEO of the club, Salihamidzic and Nagelsmann work to reinforce and shore up a squad that they won the ‘Sextet’ in 2020 and that they are adjusting to storm the Champions League again and compete with Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, PSG… With or without Lewandowski.
