Report: Window is closed for Bayern Munich major acquisitions

Marcel Sabitzer, Dayot Upamecano, and Julian Nagelsmann is a nice haul...everything else is just filler.

According to Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich not make any additional moves for the first-team during the final hours of the summer transfer window even though Sport Bild’s Christian Falk reported two moves could still happen.

While the Bavarians might not be bringing in any players, the club can still sell players as Michael Cuisance and Corentin Tolisso have both been closely linked to moves away from Bavaria:

Chris Richards could also still leave on loan and there could be other minor moves that do not affect the first-team, but for all intents and purposes, Bayern Munich has put its wallet away.

The signing of former RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer was obviously a low-cost coup for the Bavarians. With the versatility to play five positions in the club’s current 4-2-3-1 formation, Sabitzer is exactly what the club needed to round out a roster that was viewed as “thin” by many pundits.

The emergence of Josip Stanisic also seems to have quelled the club’s previous desire to bring in a right-back during this window. Should Stanisic continue to build on the promising play that he has shown so far, the club might finally see one of its youth players break through the wall blocking the pathway from the campus to the first-team.

Stanisic came to Bayern Munich from SC Fürstenfeldbruck to play for the U-17s back in 2017.
