Here we...go again? Bayern Munich links to forwards will not stop, and the World Cup season has, if anything, lit a fuse. Portugal star João Félix is reportedly leaving Atlético Madrid in January, which easily makes him one of the biggest names on the winter transfer window market.

At this point, it’s prudent to take this all with a giant heaping of salt. Félix pushing for an immediate transfer would be big news, if true, and he’d certainly draw the attention of some of the biggest clubs in the continent.

But if he really will move in the winter, Bavaria should be an exceedingly unlikely destination. Sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidžić has maintained that the German giants won’t be making moves this January. Remember?

Félix’s camp surely knows this, but maybe the Spanish media don’t. In any case, Bayern’s emerging needs are clearly in defense. Adding a €50m transfer in attack? Dubious indeed.
