FC Bayern Munich has its eye on RB Leipzig’s man of the hour. Whether the Red Bulls have to worry seriously, however, depends on a Bayern wing racer.
Munich / Leipzig – Does FC Bayern * poach again in Leipzig? In the summer, Julian Nagelsmann brought his coaching team, Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabitzer to Munich. If there are two media reports, another RB star could soon follow Bayern’s call. Bitter for Leipzig: He is currently the only glimmer of hope in the otherwise very messed up start of the season.
Christopher Nkunku is the man of the hour at RB Leipzig *. Since the 23-year-old Frenchman under RB new coach Jesse Marsch moved from the ten position into the storm, he has presented himself in absolute top form and scored goals on the assembly line. Especially with his hat-trick at the Champions League opener at Manchester City and with his outstanding performance against Herta BSC last weekend, Nkunku has played himself in the focus of Europe’s top clubs.
FC Bayern and Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku are interested – the competition is fierce
According to a report by the Manchester evening news The two Manchester clubs City and United as well as Paris Saint-Germain show interest in the Leipzigers’ take-off – and also FC Bayern. Also the Spanish portal Don Balon reports on the interest of the people of Munich. According to this, the German record champions would have to get up to speed quickly, because Manchester City is already preparing an offer of 47 million euros to get Nkunku in the Premier League in winter. Jürgen Klopp’s FC Liverpool and Juventus Turin are also considered interested parties.

Especially because Christopher Nkunku is represented by the notorious agent Pini Zahavi, the “greedy piranha”, as Bayern honorary president Uli Hoeneß called him in the wake of the failed contract extension with David Alaba *.
Is FC Bayern now also bringing Nkunku from Leipzig? It probably depends on Coman
However: Zahavi is also pulling the strings on a crucial FC Bayern personality: Kingsley Coman. His future in Munich is still open, with him the planning stands and falls by storm. In the worst case, there is a risk of a free transfer *. The Brazilian Antony, among others, is traded as an alternative. According to the Brazilian online portals UOL is the German Bundesliga record champions the “current main interested party” * in the 21-year-old attacker from Ajax Amsterdam.
But Antony shouldn’t be cheap either. According to Universo Online the Dutch have declared a pain threshold of 40 million euros – that is not far from the alleged city offer for Christoph Nkunku. (jo) * tz.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
