The responsible persons of FC Bayern prevails a few days before the end of the season. This reports “Bild”.
After Niklas Süle had made his surprising change to BVB, which was also surprising and also free of charge, it was clear: FC Bayern needs a replacement. After all, the German international Bavaria’s central defender with the most operations in 2022/23.
Numerous candidates were therefore associated with a move to Bayern, and there were no lack of opportunities on the transfer market. Since the contracts by Matthias Ginter (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger (both FC Chelsea) expire at the end of June, the trio long was among the favorites. Nico Schlotterbeck (SC Freiburg) was also traded in Munich for a long time.
However, none of these four players will switch to FC Bayern: Ginter goes to Freiburg, Schlotterbeck to BVB. Christensen is about to move to Barcelona and Rüdiger is moving to Real Madrid. Above all, the Rüdiger transfer should be another coup of the royal who had already fished David Alaba last year.
FC Bayern offered Rüdiger a five -year contract
According to the “Bild” football director Christian Falk, Real Madrids director Hasan Salihamidzic, according to “Bild” football director Christian Falk, has become far too late. Accordingly, the end of the Champions League against FC Villarreal led to a rethink at “Brazzo”.
The bankruptcy in the premier class made Bayern “thoughtful” and even “panicked” and ultimately led to the realization that the squad lacked the necessary leader in the defense. Salihamidzic therefore personally called Rüdiger management and offered a five-year contract.
At that time, his switch to Real Madrid was already 90 percent through. On top of that, it was said to have been the first direct contact of the Bayern Real Madrids director, before that Marco Neppe, as technical manager, had only kept loose contact with the Rüdiger side.
The parallel to Nico Schlotterbeck is spicy, in which the FC Bayern leadership also waited a long time and showed itself undecided. Ultimately, head coach Julian Nagelsmann, according to “Real Madrid Bild” information, is said to have reached the listener himself to get the defender excited about Bayern. But Schlotterbeck had already promised BVB, who had worked on the obligation for months.
Meanwhile, Hasan Salihamidzic recently showed that FC Bayern could even go into the new season with the same staff in central defense. By changing right -back Noussair Mazraoui, Benjamin Pavard could move to his favorite position in the defense center.
