German giants Bayern Munich wants to sell one of their French internationals, Corentin Tolisso, for €20m in the summer. The midfielder has good interests from Premier League and Serie A clubs for a potential move in this transfer window.
The German side is keen to improve their side and sell deadwood in their club ahead of the new season. Julian Nagelsmann is yet to join the club for pre-season and the board has already big expectations for him.
The young German coach has made it clear that he would like to start Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka in the midfield area. Moreover, Nagelsmann looks to sell some of the players this summer, who are not in his plans.
Recent reports suggest that Bayern are wanting to land a right-back from the Spanish side- Barcelona. Sergi Roberto might the player Barcelona willing to join the German side. However, Bayern might be interested in landing pacy full-back Dest.
The first friendly under new manager, Julian Nagelsmann, ended in a defeat against FC Koln. Mark Uth’s brace was enough to sink the young Bayern’s side. Although, Eric Choupo-Moting and Ulreich started the game for Bayern Munich.
Also, the new signing Dayot Upamecano got a chance to start from the center-back position. Attacker Zirkzee found the net for Bayern, who could also be one of the players to leave the club this summer. While the 18-year-old Armindo Sieb scored the other goal for Bayern in a 3-2 defeat.
Bayern looking to offload several players
Die Roten could have several players this summer, including some French midfielders. According to L’Équipe, Bayern Munich are ready to accept offers for French midfielder Corentin Tolisso this transfer window. Along with him, Sarr and Zirkzee might also be shown the exit.
However, there is good interest for Tolisso in the market, especially from England and Italy. Juventus and Napoli are long-time admirers of Tolisso, however, they feel the price tag is a little too high for the midfielder.
Manchester United and Inter Milan are recently showing interest in the Frenchman, who is in search of a new journey elsewhere. The player is yet to meet his new manager Julian Nagelsmann and decide his future with the club.
Tolisso’s last season under Hansi Flick
Corentin Tolisso did feature for the French national side in the recent Euro 2020 competition. However, he got just three appearances with 65% pass accuracy. The central midfielder was a backup option last season for Bayern under Hansi Flick.
He wouldn’t want to experience another season like that under a new manager. Tolisso will be sold by Bayern this summer as they’ll look to cash in rather than offering a new deal. The midfielder also has issues with injury, which has gotten him less game time.
However, the player is calm, currently on vacation, and will soon join the pre-season training with Bayern. It is better for the German club to offload the player this summer, whose contract comes to an end next summer and will leave the club as a free agent.
