FC Bayern Munich, rumour: Interested in Belgium keeper?

FC Bayern Munich is apparently watching Belgian goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen from RSC Anderlecht. The newspaper reports Nieuwsblad.

Accordingly, the German record champion trusts the 20-year-old to inherit Manuel Neuer as number one for a long time. According to the report, Anderlecht want a fee of more than ten million euros for Verbruggen and hope to be able to keep him on loan for the time being if a top European club knocks. Clubs from England should also show interest.

However, Bayern have other plans if they sign the keeper. Although he should be loaned, but to a club that plays at a higher level than the Jupiler Pro League.

In addition to Neuer, the Munich team will have three other keepers available for the coming season: Yann Sommer (contract until 2025), Sven Ulreich (2024) and Alexander Nübel (2025), who is returning from his loan from Monaco.

FC Bayern Munich, News: Stefan Effenberg calls for rethinking

The former FCB professional Stefan Effenberg has in his t-onlinecolumn for a rethinking of FC Bayern Munich’s transfer policy.

“Your biggest construction site is obvious: Bayern need a real nine up front. You have to dig deep into your pockets for that,” wrote Effenberg and added: “But it must not fail because of that, even if the transfer fee is very high and the 100 million mark has to be exceeded. They still have to and will sign a top striker.”

And further: “Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is not enough there. It must now be an absolute priority to reposition yourself there.”

Recently there had been rumors about Bayern’s interest in strikers Victor Osimhen (SSC Napoli), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) and Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt) – they would all cost around 100 million euros, according to Osimhen Gazzetta dello Sport even 150 million.

In addition, Effenberg again criticized the leadership of the German record champions. “If Hasan Salihamidzic (Sports Board; Editor’s note) counters and says that you have eight offensive players with the title world class, then that’s all well and good. But actually another construction site and maybe even a problem.”

Eight offensive players are “perhaps just too many,” said Effenberg: “That always brings dissatisfaction and a topic for discussion, such as with Thomas Müller, who only came off the bench in both games against City.”

The former midfielder is particularly concerned with Müller’s situation: “It always hurts when he doesn’t play. Even though he’s 33 years old now, I still think he’s one of the top attacking powers in Europe.”

They played 99 competitive games together, the 100th will take place on Saturday (3:30 p.m.) at FSV Mainz 05.

“I’m delighted that we’ve managed to sign Anthony Barry. Anthony completes our coaching team and is a perfect match for FC Bayern with his passion and quality,” said Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

36-year-old Barry is considered Tuchel’s ideal solution. Negotiations with Chelsea about a release, however, dragged on. It was initially unclear whether FC Bayern would have to pay a transfer fee. There is speculation about a sum of 500,000 euros, which can increase to up to one million euros.
