Report: Corentin Tolisso not part of Bayern Munich’s plans moving forward

Tolisso is a very talented player, no doubt, but injuries and inconsistency have led to the club exploring other options.

Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso just cannot seem to catch a break. A Bayern fan since his boyhood years, the Frenchman joined the club in the summer of 2017 for a then club record transfer fee of 41.5 million euros. Unsurprisingly, there were huge expectations on him, but constant injuries and inconsistent showings have meant his true potential was never realized.

The player is still only 27, and probably has his prime ahead of him, but it seems that the club is no longer intent on waiting for his resurgence, and is in fact looking to sell him. According to information from l’equipe (as captured by iMiasanmia), the player has been informed that he isn’t part of coach Nagelsmann’s plans, and an exit this summer seems like a real possibility.

The club are reportedly willing to accept around €10 million for the player, which is a significant decrease from the previous reported asking price of around €15-€20 million. This should make him an attractive option to many clubs in the Premier League and Serie A. Juventus, Manchester United, West Ham United and Arsenal FC are all interested in bringing in the player, and at that price, they’d be getting an absolute bargain.

This could also bode well for all the Sabitzer stans out there (like me). Marcel Sabitzer has been linked to a Bayern transfer, and it has been reported that the club is in talks to bring in the experienced Austrian midfielder. A Tolisso transfer would provide Bayern with some funds that could help them with the transfer fee. Of course, it’d be nice if there are also buyers for Cuisance, but that doesn’t seem likely.

Nevertheless, selling Tolisso and bringing in Sabitzer would be a huge boost to the squad and Bayern’s treble hopes. It would be brilliant business, but will the board get the job done? Stay tuned for further developments.
