Report: “Loose inquiries” for Bayern Munich’s Bouna Sarr, who doesn’t want to move

Bouna Sarr will not reduce his salary to go to another club where he can play.

Bayern Munich right-back Bouna Sarr is widely regarded as one of the club’s most inexplicable and perplexing acquisitions in recent history.

The club did not necessarily need a subpar right-back option, but sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic brought in Sarr near the summer transfer window deadline in 2020 to help bolster the roster.

In combining with Douglas Costa — and potentially Marc Roca, who has not played enough to really be judged — Sarr’s “last minute, panic buy group” represented one of the poorest transfer window hauls in recent memory.

Sarr’s performance at Bayern Munich has been so poor that there is nary a serious suitor for him. Now, however, there are some inquiries coming from Turkish clubs, but the Frenchman is not inclined to take a pay cut and move on.

According to Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Sarr is content to ride out his contract at Bayern Munich and avoid taking a reduced salary to move on.

In a nutshell, Sarr is content to kick his legs up and collect his fat paycheck — even if he’s told that he will never play another minute for the Bavarians.

If true, those panic buys become even more painful.
