Bayern Munich made a big move official this week with Sadio Mané joining from Liverpool. He received a warm reception from the bosses in Munich. However, while the Robert Lewandowski saga was put on the backburner for a bit, this does not mean that that topic is by any means over. Both Mané and Lewandowski are discussions on today’s podcast which cover the following topics:

  • Mané’s transfer can almost be regarded as a “status” transfer in that Bayern remains a hugely attractive destination.
  • Robert Lewandowski might be forced to stay regardless of how he feels.
  • Sasa Kalajdzic rumors persist; this might mean that Bayern might believe that there is a chance that Lewandowski will leave.
  • Fans have short memories. Brazzo needs to keep up his streak of good transfers so far this summer.
  • If Konrad Laimer is signed, Julian Nagelsmann’s job next season might get just a little bit harder.

As always, we love your feedback and appreciate all the support!
