Bayern, News: Sarr for training in the USA
So far, the collaboration between FC Bayern and defender Bouna Sarr has not been crowned with success. Since moving to the Isar in October 2020, the 29-year-old has only played 25 times for the German record champions. Also in this season there are only nine short appearances, only once (in the DFB Cup against Bremer SV) he was allowed to run the full distance.
Nevertheless, Sarr does not seem to have written off the Munich chapter yet. While some of his teammates were having a good time over Christmas and the holidays, the right-back flew to Florida with Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakan and Ilaix Moriba to toil for the second half of the season. This emerges from an Instagram post by the 29-year-old, which shows him together with the well-known personal trainer Raphael Darch.
Despite his difficult situation at Munich, Sarr had recently repeatedly emphasized that he saw his short-term future at Bayern and wanted to assert himself against the German record champions. His contract with FCB runs until 2024.
“At no point did it occur to me. I will take stock of the situation with FC Bayern in June,” said Sarr recently L’Equipe regarding a possible farewell in winter. “Bayern are a club with high demands, there is less leniency. You always have to be at the top from one game to the next.”

FC Bayern, rumor: FCB interested in Brazilians?
Like the Argentine TV station TNT Sports reported that FC Bayern is about to sign Brazilian international Raphinha from Leeds United.
Accordingly, the 25-year-old winger should switch to the German record champions in January. As a transfer, a sum of 50 million euros is in the room, which is to move to Leeds in return.
It is extremely unlikely that Bayern will make such an expensive transfer. Bavaria’s CEO Oliver Kahn recently confirmed in an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitungthat one would rather take on the role of the observer in the winter transfer market. “We still have to develop a feeling of where the current pandemic situation is developing,” said Kahn and emphasized: “We are not gamblers.”
Apart from that, the German record champions are actually well filled in the position of the Brazilian, the offensive outside. With Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman, Bayern have a strong first suit, followed by Jamal Musiala and Thomas Müller.
