After the summer relocation, 5 Salihamidzic construction sites remained
The search for a replacement for Manuel Neuer is over, Hasan Salihamidzic is relieved – but Bayern Munich’s sporting director and his team still have a bit of time to catch their breath!
Sports 1 It gives an overview of what is on the agenda for those responsible for Salihamidzic with high priority after completing the search for the goalkeeper. (News: All current information about the Bundesliga)
Bayern has been in agreement with Konrad Leimer, a professional in Leipzig for months. However, there are still a few procedures that need to be clarified before the official signing is given and coach Julian Nagelsmann can describe the transfer of the coveted “pressure machine” as quite flat.

But most of the work has already been done. If there are no more big surprises, Laimer comes to the new season for free.
Der Choupo Moting Poker
Discussions are already underway about the future of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, the goalkeeper of the first half of the season (currently he has 12 goals from 17 matches). The Cameroonian feels very comfortable in Munich and enjoys a high status in Bayern’s dressing room.
However, those in charge must be prepared for a tough negotiation with chancellor Roger Whitman, because Chubu-Moting, almost 34, has finally landed his last major contract. “It’s not that easy with Wittmann, sometimes he mixes zeros,” Bayern’s honorary president Uli Hoeness said on Sunday. steelDouble pass Sports 1 see through.
With an annual gross salary of less than €5 million, Choupo-Moting is currently one of the lowest earners in Nagelsmann’s line-up. ((News: Sepp Maier attacks Bayern)
A clear leap will be necessary if Choupo-Moting continues to shoot reliably, as he does in Friday’s Bundesliga return in Leipzig. However, Salihamidzic is confident. He said of the game against RB Dazen: “She looks good. You want Choupo, and so do we. Now let’s see how far we can go.”
An important point in addition to the salary: term. With players over 30, Bayern usually only extend their contracts for another year. At the moment it remains questionable whether the Hamburg native will be satisfied with this. (Data: Bundesliga table)
There is no shortage of interest from foreign clubs. Last summer, Choupo-Moting received a lucrative offer from the Arab world. His market is better now – because he can now leave the FCB winger for free after the season.
Find the attacker
Bayern has to plan in two ways. So, the Chiefs are still looking for a striker who can come in if Choupo-Moting doesn’t extend. Either way, Salih Hamidiz & Co. will have to look for a new striker who can guarantee goals in the coming years. There are many candidates, but not one clear number.
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) would be the best sporting solution, a real emergency aid, but for the Englishman Munich will have to stretch economically in a big way. Hoeneß: “Kane is a great player. But it’s an order of magnitude – I know Manchester City pulled out of 140 or 150 million last year and I can’t imagine those are the sums Bayern Munich wants or can pay.”
The paths to other strikers like Randall Kolo Mane (Eintracht Frankfurt) or Marcus Thuram (Borussia Mönchengladbach) are not hot at the moment either. And there is no interest in Kai Havertz (Chelsea).Because the Bayern bosses don’t see the national player as nine real players and the ten is for Jamal Musiala anyway. (Data: Bundesliga results)
Benjamin Pavard tends to say goodbye in the summer. Conversations in the coming weeks should make clear how serious it is The defensive all-rounder who questioned his future with Bayern last year This time mean. (Pavard rumour: this is how Bayern reacted)
If Pavard submits the change request officially, the Bayern bosses will force a sale in the summer. Salih Hamidic and Co. do not want to hesitate for long in the case of Pavard, because they will find a new right-back if the Frenchman leaves. The scouting phase for team planner Marco Nebby and chief scout Marcus Belawa has been underway for a long time. (Data: Bundesliga table)
With Pavard’s compatriot and friend Lucas Hernandez, Bayern still want an extension. Talks with Hernandez’s squad about advisor Manuel Garcia Quilon are ongoing despite the 26-year-old’s knee injury.
Salihamidzic wants to get things done before the end of the season and clarify Hernandez’s future. Like Pavard’s contract, his contract runs until 2024.
