Bayern Munich are giving Marcel Sabitzer every sign that he would like to part ways, but the Austrian star misses the hint.
According to Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg, AS Roma are among the clubs interested in making a move for Sabitzer, but the former RB Leipzig midfielder doesn’t seem to want to consider the possibility of a move:
Marcel Sabitzer has options, including AS Roma, but player blocks all requests and wants to stay at FC Bayern @Plettigoal @SkySportNews
The situation is dire for Sabitzer. The 28-year-old has absolutely gas in his tank and is much better than he showed last season, but whatever happened during that season seems to have left Bayern Munich’s brass a bit scarred. Plus, it doesn’t even appear that Julian Nagelsmann is going to work to help find a solution for what to do with Sabitzer.
In any case, it is hoped that the player and the club can find a mutually beneficial solution.
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic had the last laugh after taking a few jokes from Spartak Moscow regarding his proposal to Liverpool for Sadio Mané:

The Spartak Moscow Twitter account is really a lot of fun. They do a great job of generating interest in the team through cheeky tweets and weird posts in general. I would recommend following them up, even if Brazzo may not want to.
There is a lot of movement and excitement these days Bayern Munich and we are covering it all here at BFW. This week, however, some of the biggest news didn’t necessarily revolve around transfers. Check out the great topics we have available for this episode:
- A dive into the relationship between Joshua Kimmich and Julian Nagelsmann.
- A look at Leroy Sane’s long-running crisis and why 2022/23 may not be so kind to the sometimes dazzling striker.
- The latest transfer reports on Robert Lewandowski, Sadio Mané and Serge Gnabry.
- Ryan Gravenberch’s arrival at Bayern Munich.
- Some sad news about some of our favorite prospects.
The quick turn to the slowdown of Sadio Mané’s transfer from Liverpool to Bayern Munich was nothing short of insane.
The move apparently came out of nowhere, closed quickly, so it took an extended period to become official. it was equally fun, draining, exciting and infuriating to cover, especially considering the dominoes that could potentially fall. Will Robert Lewandowski stay at Bayern Munich? Will Serge Gnabry reconsider his future (surely he’s not thanking his agent for the help as Björn Bezemer represents both players)? Will Leroy Sané’s role decrease? Will there be enough balls on the pitch to make all that offensive talent happy?
Of course, the move was both exciting and risky. The risk, however, is not whether Mané can perform or not, but whether his presence will create problems that Julian Nagelsmann will not be able to overcome.
Team chemistry, despite Twitter and Instagram posts, can be terribly complicated once the reality hits of a manager having to bench players, some of whom will be champions with huge egos.
Without a doubt, fans should be ecstatic because it could be awesome. The thought of Mané working alongside some members of Bayern Munich’s current attacking group should instill fear in opponents and arouse enormous enthusiasm in fans.
It wouldn’t be wise, however, not to keep an eye on how a manager, who was slightly under fire last season, can make it all work and keep the team together in the process. For sure, it will be easier said than done.
AS Roma and Brighton & Hove Albion are reportedly excited about VfB Stuttgart forward Sasa Kalajdzic. Kalajdzic, of course, is said to be one of Bayern Munich’s main goals on the transfer market, especially if the club decides to sell Robert Lewandowski:
Brighton is currently the club showing the most concrete interest in Sasa Kalajdzic. But the Austrian wants to move to a top club. Bayern’s interest cooled from attempts to sign (Sadio) Mané, while Dortmund opted for (Sebastien) Haller.
Roma have also been keeping an eye on Kalajdžić for a long time, but a move to Italy would only be a last resort for him. Stuttgart do not want to let him go for less than 25 million euros. If he ends up staying, they want to extend his one-year contract with a pay raise.
We have come to a point where there is some respite in official matches for both club and international football, but there is a lot of news to follow in terms of Bayern Munich’s activity in the transfer market. They have already secured the signings of Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch from AFC Ajax, while the transfer of Sadio Mané from Liverpool is a done deal pending medical examinations later this week. The trio of players was certainly a positive addition to Julian Nagelsmann’s roster, although we still don’t know what the future holds in the short term for both Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry.
Germany also had a series (four to be exact) of UEFA Nations League matches which gave Hansi Flick a chance to make some changes to his squad and take a look at some players he didn’t have the chance for. possibility to do so in recent international outages. They concluded their match list with a draw against Italy, a draw with England, a draw with Hungary and then an emphatic win over Italy to end that round of matches.
In this episode of Bavarian Podcast Works, Tom and Teddy discuss:
- The arrival of Noussair Mazraoui
- The arrival of Ryan Gravenberch
- The early arrival of Sadio Mané
- How the three purchases will fit into Nagelsmann’s systems
- How often do we think they will play purchases
- Bayern’s added depth
- The results of Germany in Nations League matches
- The future matches of the Nations League of Germany in September ahead of the World Cup
Could Bayern Leverkusen be ready to send Moussa Diaby back to Paris Saint-Germain? It starts to look like this:
It seems that Paris Saint-Germain is considering the possibility of signing Moussa Diaby. According to Sky, the 22-year-old from Bayer Leverkusen is on a long list of PSG players. In the room there is a transfer fee from 60 to 70 million euros, which the club from the French capital should increase for the national team. In 2019 alone, Diaby went from Paris to the Bayer cross for 15 million euros.
Diaby commented on the rumor a few weeks ago: “Paris is my training team, which taught me everything. I’m not ruling out a comeback, you never know what can happen in football. If PSG calls me one day, I’ll think about it. “The winger is linked to Werkself until 2025 and his contract does not contain an exit clause. Last season he gave his calling card with 13 goals and twelve assists.
Having lost Sadio Mané, Liverpool are looking to add another striker … but it is not said to be targeting Christian Pulisic. The Chelsea FC and USMNT star is not on Liverpool’s “most wanted” list at this point:
Liverpool have not ruled out the possibility of signing another striker before the summer transfer window is over, but they will not pursue a move to Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic, reportedly. The Reds have recently added to their offensive ranks by stamping a move for Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, with the six-time European champions paying a dues of around £ 67m for his services.
Pulisic was rumored to be a favorite of Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp, but sadly, the Pennsylvania-raised striker may still be stuck at Chelsea for another season.
Bayern Munich completed the signing of Sadio Mané! The Liverpool FC winger joins a deal worth € 32 million + € 9 million in add-ons, which looks like a very good deal given the current market situation.
