It is a secret from Pulcinella that Bayern would like to strengthen their midfield in the summer. In addition to Ryan Gravenberch, FCB was also recently associated with Konrad Laimer of RB Leipzig. According to current media reports, the record champions are also trying to get ManUnited star Paul Pogba.
As reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport, FC Bayern would like to sign French international Paul Pogba in the summer. The 29-year-old is only contractually linked to Manchester United until the end of the season and will leave the club in the summer.
Numerous top clubs have Pogba on their roster
According to the newspaper, three clubs are currently in intense competition for the midfielder: Juventus Turin, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern. As a result, Munich should have already made an offer for the 2018 world champion. Juve, formerly of Pogba’s club, have already made a concrete offer. Consequently, this should be financially more attractive than the one in Munich. Torino are currently the favorite for a commitment.
As a free transfer player, Pogba would fit into Bayern’s loot scheme at first glance. However, it is unclear whether FCB is actually willing to meet the player’s salary demands. Pogba has reportedly turned down a 4-year contract from Manchester City as the latter was dissatisfied with the salary offer. According to rumors, he currently earns between 15 and 18 million euros in Manchester.
One thing is clear: Ryan Gravenberch’s transfer is in the pipeline and enjoys top priority at Bayern, also because an agreement has already been reached with the player. However, it seems Bayern are looking for another midfielder. Here, RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer was last seen as Julian Nagelsmann’s dream solution.
