Sadio Mane and the young Mathys Tel have signed, but the Senegalese is not a number 9 and as for the young Frenchman, he is still too frail. The Pole’s designated successor is Harry Kane, but Tottenham managed to keep their serial goalscorer. Not enough to discourage the Munich club which will try its luck again this summer. According The Sun, the English international will not extend his contract with Spurs, at the request of Bayern Munich. According to Picturethe young Spanish hopeful Gavi is also in the viewfinder. Bayern will try it this winter if the Spaniard does not extend. The case David Alaba who refused to extend and who went free to Real Madrid traumatized Bayern Munich. The soap opera Lewandowski also reinforced this trauma. The latter no longer wish to relive the same situation and have therefore decided to act. In a podcast, the German media Picture reveals that the club is now planning to launch the extension project. In the viewfinder, we find in particular Lucas Hernández and Benjamin Pavard who are out of contract in two years. If the two French were to refuse the proposals made by the Munich management, then a sale in the summer of 2023 would not be ruled out.
