Bayern Munich | Matthew: Where is all this money suddenly coming from?

Lothar Matthäus is somewhat surprised by FC Bayern’s transfer efforts.

“I wonder where all of the money is suddenly coming from,” said the record national player of “Bild”.

“It was always said recently that you had less available, also because of the corona losses. That’s why you can’t find an agreement with Lewandowski about an extension. Gnabry’s situation is unclear. And then Mané comes for up to 41 million euros, Laimer is supposed to come for 25, 30 million euros, de Ligt should come for 60, 70 or 80 million euros. The other players are watching that,” said the 61-year-old.

The Bayern bosses had repeatedly emphasized that transfers of this magnitude could hardly be financed, especially because of the losses caused by the corona pandemic.

According to media reports, the 22-year-old Dutch national soccer player Matthijs de Ligt (Matthäus: “A super transfer if it works”) has deposited his desire to move to Munich with Juventus Turin.

FC Bayern has already paid millions for Mané and Co.

The defender (contract until 2024) is said to have an exit clause of 120 million euros. Juve paid €85.5m for the centre-back to Ajax Amsterdam in 2019 and are likely to demand at least €60m.

So far, Bayern have signed midfielders Sadio Mané and Ryan Gravenberch, as well as full-back Noussair Mazraoui. According to reports, Munich paid 32 million euros as a transfer fee for 30-year-old Mané to Liverpool FC. The amount could increase to 41 million with additional services.

A fee of 18.5 million euros was due for the 20-year-old Gravenberch from Ajax Amsterdam, which can be increased by up to 5.5 million euros through bonus payments. Noussair Mazraoui (Ajax) was a free transfer. Bayern also want to get RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer, the cost could be around 25 million euros.
