Bayern Munich are looking to make a surprise signings from Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea as they look to revamp their squad with big arrivals.
Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich have identified some signings that they need to make this summer in order to replace the players who are ageing or about to leave.
However, what’s more interesting is that both the midfielders have fallen out of favour with their respective bosses in Jose Mourinho and Frank Lampard. Even though they are quality midfielders, they have failed to engrave some spot-consolidating performances.
Bayern’s interest in the PL midfielders comes on the background of the rumoured departures of Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez. Corentin Tolisso is rumoured to leave as well and this makes it pretty much clear that the club has got some gaps to fill. Given the current financial situation of clubs all around the world, it is not going to be easy.
Ndombele is valued around 65 million pounds and this is because Spurs are looking to recover the club-record 53 million pounds that they spent on him last summer.
While the fee seems to be an unrealistic one, it is highly unlikely that Bayern would match the valuation of the north London side. Like they did for the likes of Philippe Coutinho and James Rodriguez, they will look to strike a loan deal with the club that has largely struggled this season.
Coming to Bakayoko, Chelsea seem to have placed a price tag of 31.5 million pounds on him. Since his arrival from Monaco two and a half years back, the Frenchman hasn’t featured for the Blues since the 2018 FA Cup final against Manchester United.
It does prove that he doesn’t have a future at the Stamford Bridge. He has been on loan at his former club in a bizarre chain of events. Bakayoko is said to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan as well.
Bayern have got a decent purse to spend this summer and Ndombele and Bakayoko could very well end up flourishing at the Allianz Arena, like James and Coutinho did. However, there is also scope that with negotiations, they could get both the players for a sum that isn’t as high as it would be if there wasn’t any financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
