Newcastle and Manchester United contacted the representative of Ousmane Dembélé one hundred percent. Bayern follow closely but there are surely more teams behind the Frenchman. Let’s see who offers more ...
Bayern Munich is in no position to get into a bidding war for any player at this point. While Dembele would be a free transfer at the end of the season, it can be ascertained that he wants a huge salary — which could be problematic in Bavaria.
