FC Bayern Rumor: Summer Poker Will Likely Continue

As already announced on Monday, FC Bayern have stepped up their campaign for Yann Sommer and are now making noise sky the offer for the Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper has increased. As a result, FCB offered eight million euros plus a bonus of one million. But the foals would have rejected this offer already qualified as “all-in”.

According to Photo A “marathon of negotiations” has taken place between the two clubs in the past 24 hours. On Sunday, the FCB would have offered bonuses of five million plus three million euros. However, the Gladbach management reportedly refused. Over the phone, Oliver Kahn was told that no offer below the lump sum of eight million euros would be accepted.

Bayern then followed suit. The new offer: six million euros plus two million euros in bonuses. Given that the extra millions are only expected to be paid out if Bayern win the Champions League, according to the report, Gladbach were also unhappy with the offer. It is said that the foals were already expecting there to be no more offers. But on Monday night, Bayern met the initial requirement with eight million euros plus a million in bonuses.

As the Photo reported, Gladbach always refused because too much time had passed. Nevertheless, there should still be hope for the German record champions. As the report states, after a night’s deliberation, BMG bosses have decided to contact Montpellier again to inquire about the availability of sought-after successor Jonas Omlin.

According to reports, Sommer has long since verbally agreed with Bayern. Schweizer’s contract expires at the end of the season. Gladbach would have the last chance in winter to collect a fee for the goalkeeper.

FC Bayern, News: Matthäus calls for generous Munich

National record player and former Bayern professional Lothar Matthäus called on FCB not to let the summer transfer fail because of a million or two: “Bayern should think of their high goals and not be too stingy. In the end , this transfer is a win for everyone involved,” he wrote in his column for sky. At the same time, he can understand that there is still some haggling over fees.

“Gladbach don’t have to insist on taking every euro away from a well-deserved player who only has a few months left on his contract,” he continued. In the end, Gladbach gets “good and unexpected money for its goalkeeper of the future. Bayern, a great goalkeeper for Neuer, unfortunately injured, and Sommer can realize his dream of winning titles after a good time in Gladbach”.

No matter the person, it is clear to Matthäus that the second half of the season “will not be easier for Bayern without Neuer. But I believe that Yann Sommer will come and that the best German club can at least survive both in Leipzig and against Paris.” However, Matthäus is such a big fan of Neuer that he cannot be completely replaced by Sommer either. If needed, however, he reckons substitute Sven Ulreich can fill that task as well: “He’s always played well when Manuel has been out lately and he’s got what it takes to be a great support for months on end.”

FC Bayern, News: Loan player Tillman leaves return open

Malik Tillman is currently on loan from FC Bayern to Glasgow Rangers for training. The loan runs until the end of the season, but the 20-year-old attacking player does not want to give a prediction on what will happen next. “It depends on the club but also on Bayern. They have to communicate first,” Tillman said after the League Cup game against Aberdeen. In the end, he didn’t have to make the decision, he clarified.

Born in Franconia, he made 19 Scottish league appearances, scoring five goals and providing four assists. The regular player has also been on the pitch five times in the Champions League. Tillman, who made his debut for the United States national team last summer, joined Bayern Munich aged 13. So far, he hasn’t topped seven appearances for the pros (164 minutes).

His contract at Munich runs until 2024 but the Scots have the option of signing Tillman for around seven million euros. FCB then has a redemption option. Glasgow head coach Michael Beale has already said he would like to keep the player.
