Lothar Matthäus lacks a clear transfer concept at German champions Bayern Munich. “At Bayern, you don’t know what’s going on with transfers – opinions differ,” said the 61-year-old Sky sports.
On the one hand, they bought players and provided them with high-paying contracts. “And then you say to deserving players who have written this success story at FC Bayern in recent years: ‘It’s not enough for you anymore – you can no longer pay or we can’t meet your demands’,” criticized the long-time Bayern player -Captain.
CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic are responsible for transfers at FC Bayern. Matthäus continues: “Uli Hoeneß once said: ‘A young German national player has to play for FC Bayern.’ That was the law for a long time.”
But at the moment the German internationals are no longer going to FC Bayern, as shown by the example of Nico Schlotterbeck from SC Freiburg, who apparently prefers an offer from Borussia Dortmund, “although FC Bayern needs central defense,” says Matthäus.
The Franconian would welcome a transfer of national player Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg to BVB: “It’s a bit of Sancho, a bit of Dembele, a bit of Haaland, because he can also play centrally up front. I think the player is a great fit for Dortmund, better than to FC Bayern because he gets more playing time at BVB. […] I think it’s a better move for Adeyemi to go to Dortmund than to Bayern Munich.”
