The fact that there is no longer a real world-class striker in the Bayern selection after the departure of Robert Lewandowski sometimes causes problems. According to current media reports, Bayern is already preparing to change this situation in the summer of 2023. Hasan Salihamidzic and his team are already actively looking for a striker.
FC Bayern surprisingly decided not to transfer a seasoned striker over the summer, signing only the young Mathys Tel. A move that is not yet known whether it will actually work. A real top candidate was simply not available in the summer of 2022. That may change in 2023, as Harry Kane has only one year left at Tottenham Hotspur at that time.
It is not yet clear whether FC Bayern will really dare to attack. According to information from “SPORT1”, there are certainly one or two doubts about the Munich supervisory board. On the one hand, this probably has to do with Kane turning 30 next summer and, on the other hand, negotiations with Spurs are likely to become complicated despite the short contract period.
Kane would certainly not be a bargain and it is not yet clear whether the England national player would renew his contract. The fact that coach Julian Nagelsmann and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic would be big fans of Kane speaks for a move by Bayern. The Bosnian even sees him at the top of his striker rankings, along with Karim Benzema, Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.
That’s why Martinez and Vlahovic are no problem at Bayern
Due to the uncertainties surrounding Harry Kane, the Bayern bosses are already looking for alternatives, according to “SPORT1”. Most recently, the two Serie A stars Dusan Vlahovic and Lautaro Martínez were swapped as candidates. However, according to the report, both players will not move to Munich. The reason for this is that Bayern do not find the price-quality ratio of both strikers attractive. A Vlahovic would cost about 80 million euros. You would only pay such prizes for players you fully believe in.
One thing is clear: FCB seems to be working intensively on the rush hour problem internally. Honorary president Uli Hoeneß, who is still on the Munich supervisory board, recently emphasized that the record champions do not have a classic striker.
