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.
