Hasan Salihamidzic gets into a sweat - transfer stoppage at Bayern
FC Bayern apparently fails row after row with wishful players. It would be urgent that top transfers would be finalized right now. Above all, a man is now required: Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic.
34:33 degrees - measured by the temperatures, the heated Munich is currently even in front of the Emilia-Romagna. In the north of Italy, known for good food like tortellini and raw ham, the U21 European Championship was mostly full.
Pressure on Hasan Salihamidzic rises
Germany ... on Sunday evening. Between Bologna and Reggio nell 'Emilia drove Hasan Salihamidzic back and forth, the sports director of Bayern. In search of hidden and less hidden treasures of European football. The report media in agreement. It should be exhausting days for the 42-year-old. Not only because of the heat.
The pressure rises on the Bosnian. Apparently a desired candidate after the next decides against Bayern. And that's not what the Bavarians are used to. Leroy Sané of Manchester City should be averse, the Spaniard Rodrigo has opted for Atlético Madrid, Ozan Kabak pulls it from VfB Stuttgart to FC Schalke. And from London, to Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea), there has been no enforcement for months to announce. Currently, advertising the record champion in the transfer market is more of a search for solutions B.
It would be important for top transfers to join the team right now, at the beginning of July. Because: On July 8, the summer preparation of FC Bayern begins on the Säbener road. This is followed by the Audi Summer Tour in the USA.
New hierarchy sought at Bayern
This time, the top teams do not have the mortgage that several stars can not get into training until late, because they were at a European Football Championship or World Cup. After the departure of Mats Hummels, Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben, and the guesswork for the future of Jérôme Boateng, the record championship is not just about forming a new team, but also giving this new team a new hierarchy. And that works best when footballers work together.
However, the sports director can not announce success stories, while contender BVB commits one player after the next - and enters training five days earlier. With the ex-Bayern and new leader Hummels.
Sure, it is obligatory for the transaction to delay the bill of exchange and haggle over millions again towards the end of the transfer period (31 August). But time is short, for Hasan Salihamidzic!
