For even more news and rumors about FC Bayern – this way!
FC Bayern – Rumor: Benjamin Pavard was offered two clubs
Benjamin Pavard’s future at Bayern Munich is still open. The player would prefer to play in central defence, but there is a glut with Lucas Hernandez and Dayot Upamecano following the arrival of Matthijs de Ligt. And so the French could still be sold.
As sports1 reported, Pavard is said to have been offered two Premier League clubs in the past few days – Chelsea and Manchester United. According to the report, Pavard is not an option at United, while Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel could well imagine Pavard, especially as the Blues’ back-line is already in turmoil. In addition, Pavard is said to have been brought into play at Atletico Madrid – without success.
However, there is disagreement among Bayern’s top management as to whether selling Pavard would make sense at all at this point in time. In the meantime, concrete negotiations are still a long way off, it is said.
FC Bayern – News: Serge Gnabry talks about double leadership
At FC Bayern, a system change is in the offing after the departure of Robert Lewandowski. Apparently, Julian Nagelsmann will act with a double leadership in the future. For Serge Gnabry, who has mainly been used on the wing so far, this is not a problem.
The national player revealed this in an interview with the FC Bayern website: “I feel very comfortable in the two-top system, we played that a lot in the national team and also back then in Hoffenheim. I generally like to play centrally, but it is depending on what system the coach wants to play.”
Gnabry emphasized that Munich are “very flexible anyway” and have many players “who can swap positions with each other. As long as we understand each other and the routes are right, it’s not a problem if someone moves from the center to the wing or the other way around.”
FC Bayern – Rumor: Striker Joshua Zirkzee wants to leave
Striker Joshua Zirkzee apparently tends to leave Bayern. With the transfer of junior jewel Mathys Tel from Stade Rennes to FCB, Zirkzee sees little chance of enough time to develop further. He particularly enjoyed the previous year at RSC Anderlecht. That reports sports1.
Already on Thursday he had table football reported that the bosses were ready to give up Zirkzee and would not put any obstacles in his way if he made an offer.
And there are said to be a few interested parties, including Ajax Amsterdam, who are looking for a successor to Sebastien Haller, who has switched to BVB. In addition, clubs from England and Italy should also be interested in the Dutchman, even a change within Germany is conceivable.
FC Bayern – Sadio Mane excited by youngster Paul Wanner
Paul Wanner is one of Bayern’s greatest talents. And that didn’t go unnoticed by FC Bayern’s newcomers either. Sadio Mane in particular is said to be enthusiastic about Wanner, like them tz reported.
According to a report in the newspaper, both Mane and Noussair Mazraoui couldn’t believe at first that Wanner was only 16. Mane is said to have even told Wanner that he seemed much more mature than he was at that age. According to the Senegalese, Wanner could already be a world-class player by the age of 20.
As far as Wanner’s exact position in Munich’s game is concerned, there could be a surprise. the tz reports that coach Julian Nagelsmann is also planning with the youngster on the left side of defense, as a kind of backup behind Alphonso Davies. This is also the reason why the previous substitute Omar Richards was sold and no replacement is planned for him.
FC Bayern vs. RB Leipzig today in the Supercup
FC Bayern will play RB Leipzig in the Supercup this Saturday (8.30 p.m. in LIVETICKER). It will be the first endurance test for Munich after the US tour and the first chance of a title against the current cup winners.
It will be interesting to see how many Neue Nagelsmann will bring from the start. It can certainly be assumed that offensive star Sadio Mane will appear from the start – possibly in a variable two-man storm alongside Serge Gnabry. In defence, on the other hand, everything will probably remain the same for the time being and even newcomer Matthijs de Ligt will have to watch from the bench after a training deficit.
The game can be seen on TV both on free TV Sat 1 as well as on pay TV sky.
