This month the winter transfer window opened. By joining a new club this window fringe players hope to get some playing time for themselves. Bayern Munich has some players within childhood teams and their squad that may leave at the end of this month.
There were reports in Germany indicating that Bayern does not want to sell any player in the winter transfer window. Nevertheless, this could just be a stand from the club to not reduce the value of players they want to offload. Offers and the will of the fringe player may persuade Bayern to cash in.
Aside from departures, there could be several loan deals which Bayern could be looking to complete by the end of January. The loan transfers will allow players to keep their growth by getting regular playing time at other clubs. Here is the list of players that may leave Die Roten this season.
Javi Martinez is no longer a first-choice participant at Bayern Munich. When all other midfielders are available for selection the midfielder struggles to begin in midfield. His lack of pace makes him a liability in defense.
The Spaniard was deployed in defense for the past two months because of injuries to other central defenders. Lucas Hernandez is set to come back from injury after winter break, therefore Die Roten is going to be OK in defense, making it hard for Martinez to get regular playing time.
Martinez has been linked with a return to Athletic Bilbao, and Die Roten reportedly wishes to include him in a swap deal which will involve Unai Nunez. This transfer could be the best possible solution for the parties involved. Bayern will add depth in defense, and Martinez will get to perform frequently.
The Spanish midfielder was a powerful figure for Bayern in the last decade. He possibly wants a change to get back to his best and is currently on a steep decline curve. Martinez was ruled out for six months. This harm shouldn’t scupper a transfer if the parties to cooperate, just like Lucas Hernandez’s transfer.
Bayern and Jerome Boateng have been trying to part ways for the previous two summers in a row. He tried to force a transfer to Paris Siant-Germain in 2018, but two clubs could not reach an agreement over the transfer fee. Last summer, there were not any concrete offers for him until Juventus revealed late interest.
Boateng has been far behind in the pecking order at Bayern. He was not able to find regular match time on account of the arrival of Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez in summer. Whenever he has played for the German champions this season his lack of pace has been exploited by opponents with ease.
It is better for all parties that out a new club is soon found by Boateng. The German defender’s entourage has allegedly held discussions with Hasan Salihamidzic about a move away from Bavaria in January. His departure will assist by signing a young defender to replace him, Die Roten to finish their defensive overhaul.
In such a scenario, Bayern shouldn’t stand in the way of Boateng. Since Boateng’s contract at Bayern is set to expire in 2021, this winter transfer is likely to be the last opportunity for Die Roten to get a transfer fee for him.
