Bayern is on the look-out for another right-back, but will they sign Barcelona’s shooting star?

Bayern Munich’s transfer window has been pretty slow. The Bavarian front office managed to secure two signings before the market got heated up. They signed Dayot Upamecano, one of the most sought-after defenders in Europe. And at the end of May, they officiated the signing of Omar Richards and Sven Ulreich.

And now, there are still uncertainties regarding some reinforcements. There has been a lot of talk about Bayern wanting a new right-back since Bouna Sarr has had a very hard time adjusting.

Most recently, Sergino Dest was again linked with a move to Bayern Munich. Now, Abendzeitung reports that Bayern submitted an offer for the US right-back, but Barcelona rejected it.

Bayern was also interested in Dest last year, but he opted for Barcelona. Reportedly, Bayern’s offer was below Ajax’s asking price and Barcelona offered better terms to the player.

The deal probably won’t happen any time soon, since I don’t see Bayern paying more money, which they eventually would do, than they should have last year. In addition, they have to get rid of Bouna Sarr, which will also be very difficult for the Bavarians.
