New transfer rumors emerge about Bayern trio

Bayern president discusses potential moves for five players

July 25, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
Team president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted that at least one of these players could leave the club.

Teams in Europe will be glad to read some of these words, as some of their top transfer targets might be available during the current summer transfer window.

Bayern München's bosses have spoken about the future of some of their key players, which include Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcántara, Jerome Boateng, James Rodríguez and Arturo Vidal.

According to the team's president, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Die Roten have no intention of parting ways with either "Lewa" or the Colombian ace, but the remaining three players could have played their final official game as Bayern footballers.

"Lewandowski is going nowhere, he's still a key member of the team. This is a time of fake news, no one from Real Madrid made contact to see James returning to the Bernabeu, and even if something like that had happened, we wouldn't have agreed. He's still under contract until next year, so there's no discussion,"Rummenigge stated.

Although Thiago Alcántara has been linked with a move to Barcelona and other clubs, Rummenigge admits that the Bavarian side is not interested in seeing him leave, even if coach Niko Kovac hinted that a deal could be worked out at the player's request.

Even if these three players stay, the future doesn't look so bright for Boateng and Vidal.  The German center back has already started negotiating a deal with PSG, and the German giants could sell the player if the deal satisfies all parties.

"At the moment, there's no direct contact between the clubs, but there's contact between his agents and PSG. Now, we have to wait and see if we find a basis on which we can agree on a transfer. We have to find a transfer fee that would be acceptable for both. In principle, we have enough players at this position, even if Jerome leaves," Rummenigge said.

Lastly, Vidal's future seems to be far away from the German champions, mainly because the club is not willing to offer the player a multi-annual contract extension.

"Arturo Vidal has to figure out his own future. He's still under contract with us for one more year, but if he wants to sign a longer deal, he will have to move. If he comes up with an interesting bid, we will evaluate it," Rummenigge concluded.

Bayern are currently preparing for the 2018-19 season in the U.S..
