FC Bayern, rumor: ex-Barca talent on Bayern wish list?

Sports director Oliver Kahn recently said that the record champions’ transfer activities “largely” ended this summer, but according to transfer expert Matteo Moretto, FC Bayern should have asked Olympique Marseille about Konrad de la Fuente.

The 21-year-old winger comes from the FC Barcelona youth team and moved to Marseille last summer for three million euros. According to Moretto, in addition to FC Bayern, FC Burnley, Besiktas Istanbul, Olympiakos Piraeus, FC Porto and Borussia Mönchengladbach should also show interest.

De la Fuente is said to have previously agreed a move with FC Valladolid, but new inquiries have now put that transfer in jeopardy. Moretto reports that Bayern have also campaigned for the American and would like to sign him.

FC Bayern, News – Lahm: Bayern are “unique in Europe”

Philipp Lahm sees FC Bayern as a prime example of good work and continuity in the football business. “The winning mentality was developed and passed on over generations. Especially through the former players who have been running this club for 40 years. Where else is that? The people of Munich are unique in Europe,” said the 38-year-old table football

However, Lahm expects coach Julian Nagelsmann to take a step forward in his second year at Bayern. “Julian Nagelsmann now has to show how he can develop the team,” said the eight-time German champion: “He proved in Hoffenheim and Leipzig that he can develop teams. The constellation at one of the biggest clubs in the world was – just for one young coach – difficult. A title was okay. But at FC Bayern, more than one title has to come out of it in order to be able to work really successfully for several years.”

However, Lahm spoke out in favor of giving Nagelsmann the necessary time. “The first year under Jupp Heynckes in 2011/12 wasn’t the most successful either, we finished second three times – and won the treble in 2013,” he said.
