Free of any contract in June, Corentin Tolisso could leave Bayern for free in the summer. A situation closely followed by Real Madrid, according to the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, while the Bavarian leaders still hope to extend it.
Will he discover Spain? The Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reports this Saturday that Corentin Tolisso would interest Real Madrid in the event of a free departure next summer. Under contract with Bayern Munich until next June, the French midfielder has still not extended and is therefore free to discuss with the club of his choice since January 1.
A reunion with Ancelotti?
In Bavaria, the leaders do not want to relive the « David Alaba case », free party last summer to fill the ranks of the Madrid giant. According to the Catalan daily, Bayern would be aware of Real Madrid’s interest in the former Lyon player and would do everything possible to keep him in Munich. Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann is among those insisting on the French international’s extension.
Mundo Deportivo understands that Real and the Tolisso clan have come closer in their last days and that the player would not be against this new adventure. Moreover, Tolisso is a player Ancelotti knows very well as he was one of the players he requested when he arrived on the Bayern bench in 2016.
Real Madrid aren’t the only European big names with an eye on Tolisso, as Premier League and Serie A sides are also closely following what’s going on with the French player.
In full swing in the Bundesliga, he scored two goals in two games before the international break. His coach had also praised his work and his selflessness at a press conference after the 4-1 victory against Hertha Berlin: « He is a very dangerous player in front of goal, he was before arriving at Bayern Munich and he still is. He feels the blows well when he goes into the box. (…) He had a very good game and is a very dangerous midfielder, which is important, especially when our opponent defends a lot. Everyone knows his contractual situation. For the rest, I have no information and cannot comment. »
