Kahn on the FC Bayern transfer market: « It’s time to make an exclamation mark »

During the presentation of new defense chief Matthijs de Ligt (22), who will cost up to 77 million euros, Kahn again flirted with other newcomers this summer. Asked about Konrad Laimer (25), Mathys Tel (17) and David Raum (24), the Bayern CEO in Washington did not give specific names but said: « We have now had other discussions with several players and now you’ve just watched. The transfer window is still open for a while. Sometimes things move very fast. »

This was the case with the transfers of de Ligt from Juventus Turin and Sadio Mané (30) from Liverpool FC, Kahn said. “Now it was time to make exclamation points in the transfer market. At FC Bayern, we want to remain one of the top four teams in Europe.” Ryan Gravenberch (20) and Noussair Mazraoui (24) ) from Ajax Amsterdam are also new to Bayern Munich, with Kahn recently publicly confirming his interest in Tel, which will cost a double-digit transfer fee.
