Dest, Camavinga, and other players on Bayern Munich’s want list are potential summer transfer targets.

Leroy Sane is already a member of the German champions, but they might look to add another player this summer.


The Bundesliga finishes earlier than the top leagues in Europe, allowing Bayern Munich to make an impression in the transfer market early on.


Just a few days after winning their eighth straight Bundesliga championship, they eventually completed the acquisition of Leroy Sane from Manchester City, a German international.


In their quest to identify long-term replacements for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, the Bavarians sought the 24-year-old for more than a year before ultimately landing the desired winger.


Potential summer transfers for Bayern

Bayern Munich dipped their toes into the market in January to see if they could find a new right-back, but the Real Madrid-loaned Alvaro Odriozola was a major letdown for everyone


However, Sergino Dest of the United States and Ajax are the main subjects of their attention.


Before the Eredivisie season was abruptly halted in 2019–20, the 19-year-old played 35 times for Ajax, and Dest’s agent claimed that both Bayern and Barcelona were considering signing his client.


Bayern’s primary issue at the moment appears to be Ajax’s asking price of €26 million (£24 million/$30 million), as sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is keen to get the most out of any deals he is engaged in.


The German champions’ second objective this summer is to sign another midfielder, particularly because they might need more depth in that position if some senior players opt to depart.




Although Borussia Dortmund beat Manchester United to the signing of Jude Bellingham, Bayern Munich never made a serious bid for the wonderkid.


Another young midfielder who has gained Bayern’s attention is Eduardo Camavinga, a teenager from Rennes. The 17-year-old may be one of the most sought-after prospects on the market due to his mature performances in Ligue 1.


Before deciding whether to pursue their interest in the French youngster, Salihamidzic is likely to want to wait and see what happens with other moves elsewhere in Europe as well as prospective withdrawals from Munich.


Bayern’s potential summer departures

The biggest transfer saga in Munich this summer will center on whether Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba depart the club now that Sane has been signed.


Although Thiago was scheduled to sign a new contract in May, he abruptly decided against doing so. The Spanish midfielder, who joined from Barcelona with just one year remaining on his contract, has made the decision that he wants a fresh challenge after winning the league championship each season since then.


He reportedly wants to go with Premier League winner Liverpool, but the Reds are more interested in other positions than midfield and there are concerns about his age and injury history.


However, a modest price can persuade clubs to take a chance on a midfielder who is word class when Fit to play.


However, Alaba has excelled at center back under Flick, who has frequently voiced his love for the Austrian defender.


Although a move to Manchester City may be an option given that Pep Guardiola is also a fan from his time in Bavaria, Bayern are more likely to agree to his pay demands in order to keep him on a new contract.


Although the coronavirus pandemic has caused financial problems for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, they are both unable to sign Alaba this summer. In 2021, a free transfer might be feasible, although that would be Bayern’s worst-case scenario.

At the Allianz Arena, Sane will wear the No. 10 jersey in place of Philippe Coutinho, who wore it while on loan from Barcelona.



In the agreement with the Catalans, Bayern had a buy option for Coutinho, but the club will not use the provision or even discuss a price because the Brazilian has not lived up to expectations despite scoring eight goals in the Bundesliga in 2019–20.


Ivan Perisic joined the ranks of other loanees in Munich, although Bayern would be more open to acquiring him long-term if they could persuade Inter to agree to a cheap transfer cost. The Croatian winger has been a standout teammate but is only considered a backup because he turned 31 earlier this year.


Bayern may elect to keep Javi Martinez or Corentin Tolisso if Thiago departs, as both players are anticipated to leave this summer.

Martinez was retained because of his versatility, but now that Tanguy Kouassi has joined the team on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, the club has a younger player who can play both defense and midfield in place of the Spaniard.
