One of the basic principles of Bayern's transfer policy has always been the engagement of the best German players, but the impression is that the Bavarians have never been so seriously engaged in this issue as in the last few years.
When he left the position of the first man of the club, Uli Hoeness said in his welcome speech that the long-term goal of the Munich club should be able to form a team that will be the skeleton of the German national team.
Earlier engagements of Serge Gnabry, Niklas Sule, and Leon Goretzka showed that this is not a matter of empty wishes and that this is a serious project so that with the arrival of Leroy Sane, the Bavarian giant practically formed 90% of the national team influx "in its own backyard"
The German public has no dilemma that Bayern's trio Gnabry - Muller - Sane should play behind the striker (when he is interested enough in football), ie they have Joshua Kimmich and Gortzka in the midfield. When the mentioned defender Sule and the inviolable Manuel Neuer are added to all these names, it is not excluded that in Qatar, out of the German starting 11, as many as seven players will be from the ranks of the nine-time consecutive champion.
Which makes up almost 65 percent of the team. But according to the German television Sport1, the Bavarians will not be satisfied with that. Thus, the German colleagues compiled a long list of domestic players who found themselves or could still be the target of the champions.
Some seem really untouchable, some we have never brought into contact with the Bavarians, while the development of events in the current season could bring some names to Allianz Arena.
Sport1 about the situation
The journalists of the Sport1 channel have no dilemma that Timo Werner has the biggest chances of coming to Munich, and they estimate such a possibility at 70%.
"Werner is flourishing in the national team under Hansi Flick, he scored three goals in three games, while his status at Chelsea significantly deteriorated after the mega-transfer of Romelu Lukaku." "If his role and importance for the game of Tuchel's team do not change, no one can rule out a breakup next summer, would Bayern then go for Werner?" "It's very possible!
This is supported by the fact that the striker is a protégé of the same management agency as his former coach from Leipzig, Julian Nagelsman, or the Bayern defender pair Dayot Upamecano / Niklas Sule."
"He knew very well how to use Werner while they were cooperating in Saxony, they are allegedly in regular contact, and according to verified information from Sport1 in Munich, there was already talk at the internal level about the possibility of hiring this guy."
"Werner earns 15,000,000 euros gross in London, and that is not an unattainable figure for the Bavarians." "If he fails to reach Erling Haaland (which is quite certain) and fails to persuade Robert Lewandowski to stay a few more years, Werner is the best candidate for Bayern's attack ", writes the German portal.
