It has been a crazy weekend already regarding Bayern Munich transfers as the club announced the signing of RB Leipzig center-back earlier today Dayot Upamecano and also reportedly has a “done deal” with Reading left-back Omar Richards.
With a center-back and left-back apparently done and out of the way, what other positions would Bayern Munich be looking for and which players would fill those roles? According to Sport Bild chief Christian Falk, some decisions have already been made:
Bayern tick off their transfer-list. Defense: Dayot Upamecano ✅ Omar Richards ✅ Next names: ❎ rightback: Max Aarons @NorwichCityFC— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) February 14, 2021
❎ midfield: Florian Neuhaus @borussia, Eduardo Camavinga @staderennais, Lucien Agoume #SpeziaCalcio
If Falk’s tweet is “True”, Bayern Munich looks like it is moving on from potential pursuits of Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus and Norwich City full-back Max Aarons.
Per Falk, however, Bayern Munich is still in the hunt for Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga and Inter Milan midfielder Lucien Agoumé, who is currently on loan at Spezia.
Of course, things could change a dozen or so times from now until the summer transfer window. We’ll just have to buckle up and prepare for the ride.
As some astute readers have noted in the comments, it’s possible that perhaps Falk is saying that Neuhaus and Aarons are still on the list, which would add a different context to the tweet — and provide more confirmation that I am dumb (Christian Falk chimes in “True”).
If Bayern Munich is still in pursuit of those players, the Bavarians would likely have to be ready to shell out some cash. Neuhaus is rumored to have a release clause of approximately €40 million, while Aarons is valued at €22 million by Transfermarkt.
