Bayern Munich getting creative in pursuit of Amine Adli

Could a swap deal work for Toulouse? If so, who would go?


Bayern Munich is reportedly getting creative in its bid to Toulouse for winger Amine Adli.

With an asking price that is in the neighborhood of €10 million, Toulouse seems willing to move Adli, but Bayern Munich seems reluctant to pay that much. That should not come as a surprise when the Bavarians have reportedly been hesitant to pay €18 million (right now) for world class RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer. Multiple reports state Bayern Munich wants to sell existing players to fund a move for Sabitzer.

Now, Bayern Munich wants to try and make its deal for Adli a “swap deal” where the Bavarians would send Toulouse “campus talents” (apparently more than one) to France for the 21-year-old:

Bayern Munich’s rumored interest in Adli is odd. The club has already invested heavily in Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, and Kingsley Coman as the club’s top-three wingers. In addition, Jamal Musiala, who plays as a wing, attacking midfielder, or deeper as a central midfielder, is more than capable of playing extended periods on the offensive flank.

Perhaps this is a way to have a contingency plan in the event Coman is eventually sold or maybe Bayern Munich believes it needs some new blood at the position.
