In full reconstruction, Bayern Munich made a fairly impressive start to the transfer window. A crack in the making, two players coming of age and a global superstar, the German club is off to do some serious work in the market.
Bayern Munich is preparing for its revolution. After a solid season but not up to expectations, with an elimination by Villarreal in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, the German club will reshape its workforce in depth this summer.
Niklas Sle and Corentin Tolisso, at the end of their contract, have already set sail. Marc Roca was transferred to Leeds while Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry are also starters. Departures, initiated or to come, which for some have already been compensated.
Two big blows to Ajax
Indeed, the Rekordmeister killed two birds with one stone by stealing Noussair Mazraoui (24) and Ryan Gravenberch (20) from Ajax. The Moroccan right-back, at the end of his contract, was courted by FC Barcelona, but he finally chose Bavaria to pursue his career there. He will be the main competitor of Benjamin Pavard right of defense.
The Dutch midfielder, announced in the sights of Real Madrid, Juventus or Manchester United, has also chosen the Roten. A transfer worth 23 million euros, including bonuses, for one of the most promising players on the Old Continent. Two sacred business carried out by the sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
Man and Laimer arrive
The work of the Bosnian did not stop there since he managed to convince Liverpool to give him Sadio Man (30 years old). The Senegalese winger, who is coming out of an exceptional half-season, will sign for three years from this Tuesday. A transaction that should cost the Munich ogre 40 million euros.
In addition to the African champion, Bayern is very close to signing one of the sure values of the Bundesliga. After five years at RB Leipzig, Konrad Laimer (25) has given his approval to join his mentor, Julian Nagelsmann, in the south of the country. A transfer that could cost 20 million euros to the six-time European champion. Waiting for other recruits in the next two months? Without a doubt.
