Daily Schmankerl: Bayern Munich eyeing Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek? Could West Ham United play a role for Niklas Süle and Matthias Ginter? Bayern Munich won’t give up on Raphinha; West Brom stiff arms Bayern; and more!


Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek:

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has become a transfer target for Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Donny van de Beek’s days at Manchester United could be numbered, Fichajes said. The midfielder is apparently becoming an outcast in United’s setup, leading to speculation about a move away from Old Trafford in the upcoming January transfer window.

Van de Beek has already attracted the interest of several top European clubs this season. But it looks like the Dutchman is set to move to the Bundesliga, with the report suggesting Bayern Munich as a likely destination.

Van de Beek’s current deal runs until 2025 and it’s at least somewhat conceivable that it could be made available for a reduced rate given his relatively disadvantaged status.

Still, it would be hard to imagine Bayern Munich bringing him to this point.

Will West Ham United be a major player in the summer transfer window? Hammers are – allegedly – will be in contention for Niklas Süle of Bayern Munich and Matthias Ginter of Borussia Mönchengladbach:

According to an ExWHU employee, West Ham has a “strong interest” in Bayern Munich center-back Niklas Süle and Borussia Mönchengladbach star Matthias Ginter.

The German international duo are both out of contract at their respective clubs in June 2022, but a January deal for 27-year-old Ginter does not seem likely after he told the Bundesliga squad he would leave as a free agent this summer.

Süle, 26, could be allowed to leave the Allianz Arena next month for a fee instead of letting him go for free, and the Hammers could firm their interest with an offer given their current injury issues at the back .

There is likely to be a lot of competition for the Mönchengladbach star’s signing once he is available for nothing, and West Ham may find it difficult to compete with his services.

It would seem like a big step for West Ham United, but considering both players are available through free transfers, maybe the Hammers could make it happen.

It looks like West Brom could gain the upper hand over Bayern Munich, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Southampton by pulling them away from Reyes Cleary:

West Brom has progressed in talks with Reyes Cleary as they seek to secure the forward with his first professional contract. The 17-year-old is the latest exciting talent to rise through the ranks at Albion, but due to his age they have yet to tie him to a long-term deal.

This made them vulnerable to Cleary joining another club, and while the Baggies are entitled to compensation, that wouldn’t reflect his potential. It has been suggested that Bayern Munich are very interested in the teenager, as well as Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Southampton following his fine form at U23 level.

However, in a real boost to West Brom fans, The Athletic revealed that “discussions have progressed positively in recent weeks” between the Championship team and Cleary’s representatives.

Aston Villa takes Aaron Hickey of Bologna seriously:

Providing an increasing quality of performance from the ranks of Bologna, Scotland’s Under-21 international left-back Aaron Hickey is said to be emerging as a major target for Aston Villa. Birmingham manager Steven Gerrard is actually reportedly adamant about leading the 2002 born in his arms and elevating him to the best fair and square player.

Playing for the Italian club since 2020/21, the former Celtic Glasgow and Hearts of Midlothian were previously followed by a bunch of bigger teams including Fiorentina, Leicester City and Olympique Lyonnais. Hickey, to date, is reportedly worth € 8million, roughly five times the amount he bought 15 months ago, through Felsinei.

Hickey has been a long-time Bayern Munich target.

Bayern Munich may be on hiatus, but there was a lot to say as the team closed an extremely strong game Hindu.

During the preseason, some skeptics weren’t sure if Julian Nagelsmann was the right fit for the position in Bavaria, but whether you like him or not you can’t dispute the bottom line.

Bayern Munich are a juggernaut.

Here’s what we have in the works for this episode:

  • A brief thank you to the BFW community for all the continued support.
  • Deploring not to have been able to join Tom Adams for a show for two.
  • An amazing moment in recognizing that I was actually alone and had an empty house (so I drank beers and did a podcast).
  • A look at training, defense, midfield and attacking during the Hindu.
  • Updates on Sergino Dest, Niklas Süle, Marc Roca and Corentin Tolisso.

I still don’t understand this move given the current depth of the wing – and the cost to Raphinha – but Bayern Munich just can’t leave it (allegedly):

Playing for Leeds United since 2020/21, 25-year-old Brazilian international winger Raphinha, according to Transfermarkt.de, is still a major target for Bayern Munich.

Also tracked by Chelsea and Liverpool, the former Sporting Lisbon and Rennes player, previously interviewed by Paris Saint-Germain as well, is currently in contract with the Peacocks until June 2024, for a value of around 40 million euros. euros.
