According to a recent report from Sport Bild regarding Bayern Munich’s transfer plans, the club has decided internally to reduce the transfer fee for Thiago Alcântara to €30 million, which is €10 million short of what the club initially was asking. As reported earlier, clubs including Premier League giants Liverpool have concrete interest in the Spaniard.
At present, Bayern has not completed their squad planning as they are waiting to finalise the transfer status of players including David Alaba, Corentin Tolisso, and Thiago Alcântara. The management wants to bring in new players only after these players transfer out.
It has also been reported that Hansi Flick wants to add a fourth winger to the trio of Leroy Sané, Serge Gnabry, and Kingsley Coman and a new right-back to the club’s roster. Given how Benjamin Pavard’s injury has caused a little panic in the Bayern community recently, it is safe to say that signing a right-back should be the club’s priority now. As for Ivan Perišić, the club has not made a decision yet. Inter Milan’s asking price and the player’s salary seem to be too high, but they have not abandoned all hope of a deal and Perišić himself wants to stay.
