Sport Bild journalists Christian Falk and Tobi Altschäffl hit their Bayern Insider podcast and gave latest news on Bayern Munich’s pursuit of VfB Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic.
Per the two reporters, VfB Stuttgart is requesting €25 million for Kalajdzic, but the Bavarians are only willing to go up to €20 million at this stage. But — and there is always a but — Bayern Munich would do what it takes to get a deal done for the Austrian.
The only draw back per Falk and Altschäffl, is that some within Bayern Munich do not think Kalajdzic can replace Lewandowski by himself (Editor’s Note: Who can? Erling Haaland was the only available option who could come close).
According to Tz reporters Philipp Kessler and Mano Bonke, the situation with Kalajdzic is definitely serious regardless of any internal doubt. Julian Nagelsmann was a key figure in the moist recent talks with Kalajdzic’s agent and “appreciates” the striker.
Speaking of Dortmund, Kalajdzic might actually be leaning toward a future with BVB over one with Bayern Munich:
Saša Kalajdžić is having doubts whether joining Bayern would be the right move for him. The Austrian is aware that if Lewandowski ends up staying next season, his chances of game time would be limited. As of now, Kalajdžić is leaning towards a move to Dortmund [@tzmuenchen] pic.twitter.com/rH7MePxarX— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) May 20, 2022
