Bild’s Christian Falk is reporting that the talks between Bayern Munich and Leeds United for Michaël Cuisance are entering the “decisive phase.”
The latest Bayern Munich transfer saga could be quickly coming to a close after just about 10 days. Per various reports, Cuisance is set to sign a five-year deal with Leeds United and English club is ready to propose a bid of approximately €20 million for the 21-year-old.

Falk’s frequent Twitter buddy Fabrizio Romano reported in The Guardian that Bayern Munich wanted €30 million for Cuisance, but will ultimately settle for €10 million less than that request.
Should the €20 million sale price hold, Bayern Munich is set to make an €8 million profit by selling Cuisance just one year after buying him from Borussia Mönchengladbach. The move, however, would come at a very precarious time for the club as it struggles with a lack of depth and injuries (yes, already). Despite this news, Cuisance is still expected to dress for the DFL-Supercup against Borussia Dortmund.
Regardless, Bayern Munich will surely look to be active as the transfer deadline nears, as depth is legitimately a concern to club officials and fans alike.
