After weeks of isolation and no training, Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso suffered a non-contact injury to his ankle while warming up for the team’s first small-group training. According to Bild (paywall), the severity of his injury may sideline him for up to three months.

That throws a wrench into plans that both he and the club had for the upcoming transfer window. Bild claims that the young French midfielder is downtrodden and upset by the circumstances.

Speculation over Tolisso’s happiness at Bayern and what the future might hold for him has been prevalent for the last few months. One possible move that was recently touted involved a deal with Inter Milan for Ivan Perisic, whose loan expires at the end of this season. It seems like a good fit for both teams, but who knows what will happen now that Tolisso will be out well into the summer.

There is a chance that if Tolisso heals satisfactorily by June, Inter might still want to bring him to Italy. With all the chaos caused by the coronavirus, the transfer window will likely be open longer and teams could need depth to meet the demands of condensed schedules.
