FC Dallas and USMNT star Ricardo Pepi is rumored to be heading to Wolfsburg during this transfer window.

Bayern Munich, however, did meet with FC Dallas to discuss the striker last month. According to Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), however, Pepi’s chances to establish himself in the Bundesliga were great at Wolfsburg than at Bayern Munich.

Specifically, Bild says that Pepi would have likely been a consideration for Bayern Munich’s youth teams, while Wolfsburg could potentially offer a more direct pathway to first-team playing time.

With Robert Lewandowski in tremendous form, a good back-up in Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and an abundance of talented players on campus or on loan, Bayern Munich is not short on bodies to man the center-forward position.

Could Pepi have broken through on Säbener Straße? We will likely never know, but it appears that the youngster made a better choice in Wolfsburg if his goal is establish himself on the pitch in a top league.
