Sergino Dest is reportedly in talks with Bayern Munich over a possible transfer, with Barcelona demanding €25 million in exchange for his services.
According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, Bayern Munich and Sergino Dest have initiated discussions over the prospect of sealing a move in the January transfer window. Barcelona will look to recoup the €25 million they paid to sign him from Ajax last year when they sell him

Sergino Dest joined Barcelona from Ajax in September 2020 and has since made gradual progress in his career. While there have been many moments wherein the youngster has shown what the fuss is all about, he has also had several instances wherein he has blown hot and cold.

To date, the 21-year-old has made 57 appearances for Barcelona, chipping in with three goals and four assists in the process. However, Dest faces an uncertain future at Camp Nou as he has been unable to convince Xavi of his abilities. As a result, the USMNT international could leave Barcelona as early as January, with Bayern Munich keen on signing him.

Initial reports had claimed that Bayern Munich could launch the offensive for Dest in next summer’s transfer window. However, a January move could make sense, as Bouna Sarr’s future at the club is up in the air, with a move to Serie A possible.

In addition, Benjamin Pavard has recently been linked with Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, although the Frenchman will only depart the Allianz Arena in the summer. So, Dest could be a viable long-term solution for Bayern Munich, with his uncertain future at Barcelona helping Die Roten’s cause. And talks are already underway between the two parties.

Recent reports have also suggested that Dest is keen on joining Bayern Munich, handing the Bundesliga champions a major boost in his pursuit. And signing the 21-year-old will not cost a bomb either, with Barcelona demanding around €25 million in exchange for his services.

The Catalan giants wish to recoup the €25 million they paid to sign him from Ajax. However, it is not entirely clear if Bayern Munich will submit a January bid for Dest or wait till the summer transfer window to lodge an offer to prise him away from Barcelona. It remains to be seen how talks between Dest and Bayern progress in the coming weeks.

Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane praises positive encouragement from Uli Hoeness
In addition to Julian Nagelsmann and Sane’s teammates, Hoeness has also showed continued support for the winger.

Leroy Sane from the beginning of the season up to the Leroy Sane we see now for both Bayern Munich and the German national team almost seem like two, separate players with the drastic improvements he’s shown.

From a total of 26 appearances across all competitions this season, Sane has tallied 11 goals and 11 assists, and he also bagged 4 goals and an assist for the German national team in World Cup qualifiers across the last three international breaks. The boos and whistles aimed at him at the Allianz Arena are well and truly a thing of the past and the continued support from Julian Naglesmann, Sane’s teammates, and Bayern’s front office have paid dividend.

Speaking to Bild am Sonntag over the weekend, Sane also said that he had receive support from former Bayern president Uli Hoeness, who is now an honorary president and still holds a seat on the club’s supervisory board. “The whole club management, but also Uli Hoeneß contacted me and signaled absolute support,” Sane said (Tz). Ironically enough, Hoeness had questioned Sane’s attitude and mentality in the past when he was still with Manchester City, but linked with a move to Bayern. It’s a transfer saga that wound up lasting for what seemed to be eons with his knee injury in the summer of 2019 that severely complicated negotiations between both clubs, but Hoeness has clearly had his minds changed since then.

“So much encouragement is not a matter of course in every club,” Sane continued, expressing his gratitude for the continued faith Bayern has shown in him. With his price tag combined with the drawn out nature of the transfer saga, so much expectation was placed on Sane when the deal was finally done. He’s recently admitted how difficult it was in his first season to fulfill said expectations coming off of his cruciate ligament injury and to regain momentum after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic caused the Bundesliga to pause for two months in the 2019/20 treble-winning season.

Nagelsmann, in consultation with Hansi Flick, made the tactical decision to switch Sane to the left wing from the right, and that switch seems to have coincided with the beginning of his resurgence to top form. Flick was able to work with Sane before leaving to manage Die Mannschaft and the relationship Nagelsmann and Flick have makes it all the more beneficial for Bayern. Flick might not get as much of the public credit for Sane’s resurgence, but he said that Nagelsmann “shows me again and again how I can be even better in his game system and how we can improve together as a team.” The continuity between support from both Nagelsmann and Flick has worked wonders on Sane.

Rumored Bayern Munich target Antonio Rüdiger on his way to Real Madrid?
Will there be a trickledown effect is the Chelsea defender makes a move?

Rumored Bayern Munich transfer target and current Chelsea FC defender Antonio Rüdiger is — allegedly — close to making a move to Real Madrid according to football journalist Rudy Galetti.

Rüdiger has been closely linked to both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in recent weeks, but there have also been numerous reports that the Germany international would like to stay in London.

The big sticking point for Rüdiger is — allegedly — the salary that Chelsea is willing to pay him. Regardless, Galetti thinks a deal will be closed for Rüdiger to join Real Madrid in the summer:

On interesting storyline to follow from this news — if true — would be how Bayern Munich’s plans might change. Should Rüdiger bolt Chelsea, the Premier League club could make a strong pitch to Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle, who is also a free agent in the summer.

Bayern Munich has openly spoke about wanting to retain Süle, but that could prove difficult should Chelsea start throwing around massive money.
