It sounds like both social media babble and potentially legitimate: Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman would be open to a move to Paris Saint-Germain if Kylian Mbappe leaves town. Coman’s contract ends in 2023 and rumors are circulating that he could make it through this summer if Bayern Munich don’t offer him a Robert Lewndowski-style salary:
Kingsley Coman interested in the idea of ââa return to PSG in the event of the departure of Kylian MbappÃ©. To see what the club thinks.
– Hadrien Grenier (@hadrien_grenier) 12 December 2021
It seems plausible that Coman is interested in PSG. After all, he’s French and looking for tons of money, but we still don’t know how serious he is to walk away from Bayern Munich.
While Coman has publicly stated that he has “several options” to pursue his career, he has not openly said he wants to leave Bayern Munich just yet.
If Bayern Munich want FC Barcelona goalkeeper and German international Marc-AndrÃ© ter Stegen, he will have to pay 70 million euros:
Bayern Munich will have to spend 70 million euros to keep Marc-AndrÃ© ter Stegen away from Barcelona next summer.
According to a report by Catalan media El Nacional, Barcelona will demand a sum of 70 million euros to offload Marc-AndrÃ© ter Stegen during the transfer window next summer. The 29-year-old goalkeeper is courted by Bayern Munich, having been seen as Manuel Neuer’s long-term successor.
Marc-AndrÃ© ter Stegen has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world since joining Barcelona from Borussia MÃ¶nchengladbach in July 2014. Having initially been limited to only outings in Europe and competitions in cup, the German international was the first choice. Blaugrana goalkeeper for the past six years.
So far, ter Stegen have visited Barcelona 297 times, keeping 120 clean sheets in the process. However, the 29-year-old’s performance left a lot to be desired last year, forcing Barcelona to weigh the possibility of selling him. And there is no shortage of suitors in the player’s pursuit, with Bayern Munich being one of the potential suitors.
Okay … that’s not exactly a news flash that Manchester United would want from Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, but add the Red Devils to the roster of squads eyeing both Haaland and Chelsea FC’s Timo Werner :
Erling Haaland is one of four players on Manchester United’s shortlist to replace Edinson Cavani if ââhe leaves for Barcelona, ââreports the Daily Mail.
Haaland is joined by Joao Felix, Timo Werner and Alexander Isak, according to the newspaper.
Bayern Munich have had another big week.
After a somewhat controversial victory over Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker, the Bavarians faced FC Barcelona in the Champions League – and then sent the Catalans to pack their bags in the Europa League.
While that was the big news of the week, we have even more:
- A look at the fallout from Bayern Munich’s great victory over FC Barcelona.
- Joshua Kimmich is grappling with the aftermath of his battle with COVID-19, so maybe people should fire him by pounding him and hope he feels better soon.
- Some thoughts on the Nico Schlotterbeck pursuit rumor and what it could mean for the current core of Bayern Munich defenders on the roster – and on loan.
- A preview of the new season of It’s always nice in Philadelphia and what other comedies always make me laugh out loud once or more per episode.
Bayern Munich phenomenon Jamal Musiala was selected for Bild’s Team of the Week for his performance against Mainz 05:
Coman has been picked for the kicker’s team of the week:
In a strange turn of events, former Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa scheduled his wedding reception on the same day as a game – then grew bitter that Gremio wouldn’t release him to attend:
Douglas Costa, on loan from Juventus, scored a goal for Gremio in the decisive game with anger in his stomach, the outcome of which was not enough to keep his side in the top of the league.
Costa had not wanted to participate in the match. Instead, her wedding reception was scheduled at a luxury hotel in Rio de Janeiro. However, the club denied him the special leave he requested. As a result, Costa removed the club badge from his social media profiles after clearly saying goodbye to Gremio fans after his goal while celebrating the goal.
Costa is actually still on loan to Gremio until next summer. But vice-president Denis Abrahao has already made it known that Costa will no longer run for Gremio.
âAs far as I know, Douglas has a contract,â he told Globo esporte. âHe is without a doubt a great player, he has proven it again. It’s a shame he doesn’t continue. âCosta is still linked with Juventus until 2023.
I mean … it totally sounds like something Costa would do, right?
It felt like a roller coaster ride, but right after a heavy lunch. Bayern Munich’s performance against Mainz was not impressive, professional and had many highlights, but the hosts secured a 2-1 victory thanks to some individual brilliance and a momentary reversal of the tide in the second half. . . Mainz was fantastic and made Bayern Munich fight for victory. The defense was particularly stellar, with Alexander Hack and Moussa Niakhate being the showrunners.
Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala both scored great goals apiece and secured Bayern victory at home. The win means Bayern are 6 points ahead of Dortmund at the top of the table, providing a comfortable cushion heading into the Hinrunde’s final two games.
Here are the main talking points from this podcast:
- Sustained pressure from Mainz and the organized press
- Bayern Munich’s defense blushes
- Super suspect in defense
- Non-existent midfielder and underperforming wings
- Musiala’s role and what Nagelsmann has to deal with
- Key players on each side
