After a rather dormant summer transfer window, Bayern have suddenly sprung to life, concluding as many as four deals in the last 24 hours.
Eric Maxim Chuopo-Moting has joined Bayern after his contract at PSG expired. The forward played opposite the Bavarian giants in the Champions League final last season and has now joined the winning team on a one year deal.
From Stoke to PSG to Bayern, Chuopo-Moting’s agent should take a hell lot of credit for the player’s huge moves.
Keeping to the attacking side of things, Bayern have managed to find themselves a winger following the departure of Ivan Perisic after the end of his loan spell.
The cavalry arrives in the form of a known face in Douglas Costa, who made the move from Bayern to Juventus in 2018. Though it seems unlikely that the Brazilian will start over the likes of Gnabry, Sane or Coman, the season is long and injuries are never too far away.
Add to that the fact that the squad needs rotation at certain points, and Costa could provide the Champions with some serious quality off the bench.
In the heart of the park, Bayern have replaced the outgoing Spaniard Javi Martinez with another Spanish midfielder in Marc Roca, who joined the Bavarian giants yesterday from Espanyol for a total fee of €15 million.
With Thiago and Martinez already out of the club, Kimmich and Goretzka will need backup and Tolisso can be expected to partner with Roca for reinforcements.
Lastly, and most recently, Bayern have finally landed themselves a right-back after being passed on by Sergino Dest for Barcelona.
The backup to first-choice right-back Pavard comes in the form of Buona Sarr who makes the move from Ligue 1 side Marseille. The reported fee is around the €10 million mark. With Pavard’s backup taken care of, Kimmich can now focus on his role in midfield for the remainder of the season.
