Dayot Upamecano’s commitment is currently the top priority on Säbener Straße. The Frenchman is considered the number one transfer target this summer. Until this deal is in the towel, Bayern will not push their squad planning any further. Jerome Boateng’s contract talks also have to wait as long as Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently revealed.
The 23-year-old midfielder can, like Upamecano, leave Gladbach early thanks to a release clause at the end of the season. Unlike the French, however, the Bavarians are not forcing Neuhaus to change in summer.
A Neuhaus transfer will be difficult without sales
As the “kicker” reports, the Bavarians are only active at Neuhaus if they can raise enough financial means. That means in plain language: Only if the FCB sells their own players profitably will they try to attract the German national player, who should cost between 40-45 million euros.
The list of potential sales candidates is long, starting with all the players on loan like Michael Cuisance, Adrian Fein or Joshua Zirkzee, to former hopefuls like Corentin Tolisso.
In addition to player sales, winning the FIFA Club World Cup, which at least brought about 4 million euros into the cash register, and a good performance in the Champions League would significantly improve the chances of a Neuhaus transfer.
