FC Bayern, News: Kim Min-Jae is expected to be absent at the start of the second half of the season
Bayern’s “monstrous” new signing Kim Min-Jae will probably not be available to the record champions for several weeks at the beginning of next year.
The explanation for this is quite simple: From January 12 to February 10, 2024, the Asian Championship will take place in Qatar. South Korea has qualified for the competition and Kim is one of the biggest stars of Jurgen Klinsmann’s side. In this respect, he will very definitely be nominated for the tournament.
Although the second half of the season in the Bundesliga has not yet been scheduled, it is already clear that Kim will miss the games against Hoffenheim, Bremen and Augsburg. South Korea’s group stage in Qatar runs until 25 January against Jordan, Malaysia and Bahrain, so progression after that is likely.
If the Koreans are successful, Kim threatens to miss the games against Mönchengladbach on matchday 20 and Leverkusen on matchday 21. In addition, there is also a possible quarter-final in the DFB Cup during this period. So in total he could miss six games.
However, the Munich team should have been aware of this before the transfer was completed for around 50 million euros.
FC Bayern, rumor: Transfer from Alexander Nübel to VfB Stuttgart before completion
The short-term future of goalkeeper Alexander Nübel is apparently as good as clear. After VfB Stuttgart failed with an initial offer for a one-year loan deal, FC Bayern is said to have agreed to the second attempt.
Loud sports picturewhich does not give any specific figures, Nübel should waive part of his salary for the deal and the rental fee should decrease the fewer games he would play for the Swabians.
Sports director Fabian Wohlgemuth is meanwhile quoted as saying: “Yes, we are in talks, but we are in very, very many talks, and it is the case that we end up having more talks than contracts are then signed.”
The first indication of a possible breakthrough in the negotiations could be today’s team presentation from Munich in the Allianz Arena. If Nübel is missing there, it would be a clear sign of an approaching departure.
FC Bayern, News: Kyle Walker is still “considering”.
Quite like that As recently reported, the situation with Kyle Walker and his rumored move to Bayern Munich is clear probably not yet. At least if you believe City coach Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola told reporters: “I’ve spoken to Kyle and everything is fine. We’ll see what happens. That’s all I can tell you because he’s still thinking.”
Meanwhile, several media continue to expect targeted negotiations in Asia in the coming days when both clubs meet for a friendly game in Tokyo (July 26 at 12:30 p.m. in LIVETICKER).
FC Bayern, rumour: FCB is in contact with goalkeeper Yassine Bounou
At FC Bayern, it is still uncertain when exactly Manuel Neuer will be fully resilient and ready for action again after his skiing accident. Accordingly, the search for a goalkeeper should continue behind the scenes. A trail has been leading to the Moroccan Yassine Bounou from FC Sevilla for some time.
How sports1 reports, the Munich team have now also made initial contact with the national player’s representatives. The keeper is thus one of several names that are currently being discussed.
Sevilla, in turn, are said to be ready to listen to offers for him. An indication of this: Bono is missing from the preparatory tour of the Spaniards in Germany these days, which is probably a precautionary measure to prevent any injuries.
