According to Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk, Bayern Munich has agreed to terms with RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

Twitter account @iMiaSanMia captured Falk speaking on his podcast about the Sabitzer situation, where “Mr. True” stated that an agreement was already in place between the player and the club, but the Bavarians simply lacked the funds to make a deal happen.

With a reported asking price of €18 to €20 million, it seems almost inconceivable that Bayern Munich would be in the type of financial straits that would prevent such an inexpensive move for a top-tier talent from happening.

These are crazy times, however, and Falk echoed previous reports that said Bayern Munich will need to sell players to make any type of deal for Sabitzer happen. Among the top options to get sold for Bayern Munich — based on reports — are Corentin Tolisso, Michael Cuisance, and Chris Richards.
