Per a report from Sky Germany, Bayern Munich has a very specific mission for its summer transfer window: Finalize a deal for RB Leipzig center-back Dayot Upamecano and then move on quickly to try and sign Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus.
More, Bayern Munich would like to make sure a deal with Upamecano gets done before David Alaba can announce his move — wherever and whenever that may be:
According to Sky information, Leipzig’s commitment is currently top priority for FC Bayern. According to Sky, the Bavarians want to conclude the deal with the Leipzig defensive man in the coming weeks before a departure of David Alaba becomes official.
After that, the Bavarians want to take care of the rest of the squad planning: the defensive midfield and a possible commitment by Florian Neuhaus by Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Potential moves for Upamecano and Neuhaus have been long-rumored, but Bayern Munich’s alleged urgency to get the deals done quickly shows the club might not be willing to let any bidders with deeper pockets get into the bidding early.
Both Upamecano and Neuhaus reportedly have release clauses that would total some where in the neighborhood of €82 million to €85 million.
That would not be cheap by any means, but within Bayern Munich’s reported transfer budget for this this upcoming summer transfer window.
