Bayern Resurface as Option for Milan and Arsenal Target

Bayern Munich have re-entered the picture for Joshua Zirkzee after appointing Vincent Kompany. The striker had hinted he had no interest in going back due to his minor role in the past. On the other hand, the new coach already managed him at Anderlecht with sound results.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Goal), the gaffer will ask the Bavarians to try orchestrating the Dutchman’s return. It wouldn’t be particularly challenging money-wise. The striker has a €40M release clause, plus they are owed 40 percent of the fee. Therefore, they’d spend just about €25M.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich will have to convince Zirkzee to leave Bologna and return to the Bundesliga. The spell at Anderlecht was highly instrumental to his growth. He bagged 18 goals and logged 13 assists in 47 matches after struggling to emerge in previous years.

The 23-year-old has been linked especially to Milan and Arsenal. Despite the set price to acquire him, the deal isn’t so straightforward due to the commissions asked by his agent, which might scare off some suitors.

Our Take on Zirkzee and Bayern Munich

This must be the weirdest saga in recent memory considering all the strings and snares of his previous transfer. The one certainty is that he’ll have the final say on where he’ll go. He can certainly play next to another center-forward, but they’d need to switch to a scheme with two strikers together for him to be a regular, which appears to be his main priority, and rightly so.
