Unleashed on the transfer window, Bayern Munich must also manage the many requests for its players. The Bavarians could also collect more than 150 M€.
This summer, Bayern Munich decided to get a makeover. Disappointed and annoyed after the elimination in the Champions League, the German leaders wanted to hit hard during the transfer market. And they kept their word by dislodging Sadio Mané from Liverpool one year from the end of his contract. Bavarian star rookie, the Senegalese was bought for €32 million. An amount to which must be added €9 million in bonuses. Bayern also welcomed Ryan Gravenberch against a check for €18.5m as well as Noussair Mazraoui, who arrived free.
The Bundesliga champions have therefore spent, for the moment, 50.5 M€ this summer to strengthen themselves (we do not count the bonuses, note). But they might have to put their hands in their pockets to recruit Matthijs de Ligt and to buy a number 9 if Robert Lewandowski leaves. Under contract until 2023, the Pole wants to force his departure for FC Barcelona. The Munich residents opposed it for a long time, believing that they would not find anyone better than him in his position. Despite everything, the door is slightly open since the club has set its price at 50 M€. A high sum for a free player in a year.
The club could still earn €150m
But Bayern Munich is firm. Lewy could therefore pay off big if he leaves. He is not the only one. According Sky Germany, the Germans have fixed the prices of several players. Thus, we learn that the Bavarians will ask for 40 M€ if ever Serge Gnabry were to leave this summer. The German, free in a year, has not extended his contract. Several teams, such as Arsenal or Real Madrid, have been linked to him this summer. The Germans will not give gifts if ever Gnabry refuses to extend his lease, since it is inconceivable for them to let him go free. As far as Marcel Sabitzer is concerned, the asking price has been set at €15m.
Arrived last year from Leipzig, the Austrian, cold with Julian Nagelsmann, is already on the start. Regarding Omar Richards, courted by Nottingham Forest, Munich will open the door in the event of an offer of between 10 and 12 M €. Still in defense, Benjamin Pavard could bear the brunt of strong competition and look elsewhere. Juventus, Atlético and Chelsea are notably on the spot. According to Sky Germany, an offer of €30 million could convince German decision-makers. The latter would claim € 5 million for Bouna Sarr if ever he was sold. But they think they recover less. In total, Bayern Munich could raise up to €152 million. We must also add the 12 M€ recovered thanks to the sale of Marc Roca to Leeds. That is a total of €164 million. A nice little jackpot if all these sales are made.
