Bayern Prepare For Mega Summer Clear Out

Bayern Prepare For Mega Summer Clear Out

According to tier 1 source Florian Plettenberg, FC Bayern Munich are preparing for an overhaul of new players in the summer window.

Plettenberg, of Sky Germany adds that in order to support this regime, the club must urgently offload some big names in the upcoming transfer window.

A list of potential outgoings includes Matthijs de Ligt, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Noussair Mazraoui. Bayern are willing to let all of these players leave the Allianz this summer subject to suitable transfer offers.

The Bavarians are looking to rebuild after a disastrous season which saw them miss out on all potential silverware during the 23/24 campaign, a feat they have avoided for over a decade.

Thomas Tuchel was swiftly sacked and Bayern replaced the German with Vincent Kompany, who had suffered relegation from the Premier League with Burnley during the same season.

A risky appointment, but one that piques curiosity.

Kompany must put his stamp on an ageing Bayern team with the likes of Kimmich and Goretzka approaching the age of thirty.

With Pavlovic quickly climbing the ranks in a Bayern jersey, Kimmich and Goretzka could find themselves surplus to requirements at the Allianz, it would make sense for the pair to accept a new challenge.

Kimmich has been frequently linked to Barcelona, a link that has only multiplied since former Bayern coach Hansi Flick was confirmed as the new manager in Blaugrana.

Kompany is renowned for fielding young teams and his Burnley side were the youngest of 20 Premier League teams last season with an average age of just 24 years and 257 days since the last recording.

As for the other names on the chopping block, reports of the club attempting to shift Coman and Gnabry are not something new. The 32-time Bundesliga champions have been looking to offload the pair since 2018 given their poor injury records.

In the Bayern defence, Noussair Mazraoui has failed to impress at his new club after his move from Ajax in 2022.

Fortunately, for Coman, Gnabry and Mazraoui the club shelled out a combined £25 million on the triad; meaning that they would achieve significant profit if they were to receive some suitable offers.

Possibly the most controversial player set to be axed by Bayern this summer is Matthijs de Ligt.

The former Ajax captain joined the Bavarians in 2022 for £62 million and was a stalwart in his first season at the club. However, the Dutchman has been in and out of the team having started just 16 of Bayern’s 34 Bundesliga games this season.

Still only 24, de Ligt is one of the clubs biggest assets and would raise a pretty penny if he was to depart this summer.

Kompany is said to be demanding a new centre back, left back and multiple wide men to kickstart his Bayern restructure.
