Bayern Munich Unlikely to Sign Szczesny from Juventus

Bayern Munich inquired about Wojciech Szczesny, but they’ll probably address their need for a new goalkeeper, as Yann Sommer is likely headed to Inter, with a different option. Juventus could be open for business, but they want more than €10M to sell him, La Repubblica informs (via Goal).

The Pole had a year automatically added to his contract, which now expires in 2025. However, the Bianconeri wouldn’t mind shedding his €13M gross salary off the books. He’d eventually look to join a team where he’d be the clear starter, which wouldn’t be the case in Bavaria despite Manuel Neuer’s injury concerns.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bayern Munich are probing several candidates on top of Szczesny. The latest addition to their shortlist is David Raya, but Brentford ask for €40M. They are also tracking Hoffenheim’s Oliver Baumann, Sevilla’s Yassine Bounou, and Davide De Gea.

The ex-Manchester United goalie is a free agent but demands sizeable wages. He too could be reluctant to sign with a club where he’d have to compete.

Our Take on Bayern Munich and Szczesny

The good news for Inter is that it appears to be just a matter of time before the Bavarians let go of Sommer. Despite the financial benefits, Juventus would be in a pickle if they had to find a new no.1 too on top of their other needs.
