Bayern Munchen will be one of the best teams in Europe again next year. Pep Guardiola left Munchen for Manchester and Carlo Ancelotti arrived. Both play offensive football but the style will be completely different in the Bavarian team. Apart from the good footballers they already had, the Italian coach wants to complete the squad with some of the best players in Europe.
Matt Hummels (Borussia Dortmund) and Renato Sanches (Benfica) already signed for Bayern Munchen before the Euro. However, the Bavarian club doesn’t stop there and wants more good players.
One of this targeted players is Raphael Varane, according to the French newspaper Le Parisien. The press says that Carlo Ancelotti personally asked for the Real Madrid defender and the German team is going to ask about him to Real Madrid. The transfer fee would be around 40 M€.
Bayern Munchen have had several problems in the defence line in Guardiola’s years. Dante, Boateng or Benatia weren’t the best players for this role and now the club wants to sign the most suitable footballers for this position. Hummels is already in the squad but another good defender would be welcome.
Varane has a tough situation at Real Madrid. He’s still very young and both the coach and the club tell him that he is a key player for Los Blancos, especially in the future. However, this season Varane ended up on the bench, with Sergio Ramos and Pepe playing the most important games. Varane has had several injuries in the last months that avoid him to stay always in the starting line up.
Real Madrid is not willing to sell one of the best footballers they have in the squad. Especially, if you think that Pepe’s last year as a top player could be the next one and the club has the replacement in house with Varane. But if the player decides to leave, it will be very difficult to convince him to do the opposite thing.
