How much Bayern Munich believed in the football qualities of Corentin Tolisso can be seen through the compensation that fell on the account of Lyon on July 1, 2017 - 41,500,000 euros at that time represented the largest expenditure for the needs of transfers in the history of the Bavarian giant.
The club from the Allianz Arena did its part, but Germany was not the promised country for Tolisso ... Far from it. That is why he will almost certainly leave Munich next summer as a free agent. His agents are not wasting time, according to the information of the German Kicker, but they have contacted the leaders of Inter and Tottenham.
The sports director of Spurs is a great admirer of the character and work of the French midfielder, whom he tried to bring to Juventus in the same transfer window when Tolisso signed for Bayern. Antonio Conte needs a player with such a profile, he would primarily like to hire Marcel Brozović, but the Croatian international seems closer to extending his contract and staying at Inter.
There were attempts for Bayern to use Tolisso to bring Ndombele from Tottenham. The offer was Tolisso plus 20,000,000 for the former Lyon midfielder, but the Spurs gave a negative answer. After arriving at Bayern this year, Julian Nagelsman immediately crossed out the Frenchman and put him on the transfer list with the idea of accepting and offering 10,000,000 euros, but it seems that the Bavarians will not cover even 25 percent of the transfer from four years ago.
Bayern sports sector make cardinal mistakes rarely, but Tolisso was one of the biggest. The sports director of Spurs is a great admirer of the character and work of the French midfielder, whom he tried to bring to Juventus in the same transfer window when Tolisso signed for Bayern.

More precisely, he recorded 104 appearances, 19 goals, and 13 assists, and one of the rare bright moments in the Bavarians' jersey is the performance against Paris Saint-Germain in the group stage of the Champions League in 2017 when he honored Spurs with two goals in Munich.
Juventus and Roma have been linked with Tolisso lately, but despite the dry years during which he did not play top-level football, the Frenchman demanded an annual salary of 6,000,000 euros. The fate of the once great Frenchman will be interesting
