There is no internal strife between sporting director and manager, just an agreement that both Leroy Sané and Timo Werner would make the Bavarians a better club.
In what might be the most important parley between opposing sides since Omar Little and Stringer Bell were brought together by Proposition Joe in the fine city of Baltimore, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidizic and newly-inked manager Hansi Flick have reportedly ended their schism over how to move forward with summer transfers.
Recent reports indicated Salihamidzic was pushing to bring in Manchester City winger and Germany international Leroy Sané, while Flick was staunchly supporting a move for RB Leipzig dynamo Timo Werner. The latest news from Sport Bild (as captured by the estimable Manuel Veth for Transfermarkt) states that the two opposing sides have been brought together and agree on how to proceed this summer.
Per the Transfermarkt story:
The club officials have agreed, in principle, that Sane, Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen) and Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) would be all an excellent fit for the club. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic, however, means that the club is going to be able to sign one of the three. Werner has an exit-clause and could be signed for just €55-€60 million. It would be the most economical solution for the club, especially as Werner can play various positions.
On the bright side, there is no internal strife and the disagreement over who Bayern Munich should pursue seems to be over. Of course, ANY of those aforementioned players would be a key building-block for the future of the Bavarians and would absolutely give Bayern Munich fans a reason to anticipate the start of the 2020-2021 season.
