It has been a while since we had a good row at Bayern Munich.
Per a report from Sport Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic — allegedly — made super-agent Pini Zahavi the target of his shouting during the recent negotiations for Kingsley Coman.
The genesis of Brazzo’s alleged tirade was that Zahavi and Coman were asking for — wait until you hear this — €20 million per season. That talks — as described below — reportedly ended in a dispute:
The negotiations with Alaba had stalled very much when Hasan Salihamidžić yelled at Pini Zahavi during a meeting. Now the first talks with Coman's agents have also ended with a dispute. Coman demands up to €20m/year while Bayern are offering significantly less [@SPORTBILD] pic.twitter.com/1ZqfSnvj6J— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) June 30, 2021
I know what your thinking — €20 million per season for a good player with a LONG injury history seems absurd.
Yeah, well, you and Brazzo think alike apparently.
We all kind of knew these negotiations were not going well and that Coman was unhappy with the offer, but with a €20 million demand, Bayern Munich should open bidding up on the Frenchman.
That, however, will not be easy given how much Bayern Munich is asking for Coman:
Kingsley Coman's agents want to force a move away from Bayern. However the club's asking price is €90m. Therefore, the Frenchman is currently likely to stay in Munich, which comes with the risk of running down his contract and leaving for free in 2023 [@SPORTBILD] pic.twitter.com/RIVhRHAvY7— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) June 30, 2021
Bayern Munich has more important players to wrap-up and does not appear to be eager — or able — to upset its payroll hierarchy with another Leroy Sane-like contract.
