Media: FC Bayern in a good position for Chelsea star


As a former team manager at Chelsea FC, Thomas Tuchel knows the squad of the Premier League club very well. Bayern Munich’s head coach is said to be targeting a prominent midfielder. It is now said that there are several reasons for a transfer.

According to the “Evening Standard”, the chances that Mateo Kovacic will switch from Chelsea to Bayern Munich next summer are not bad. The Blues are ready to negotiate a transfer.

Accordingly, Thomas Tuchel wanted to speak to the club bosses about the commitment of the Croatian national player at the upcoming Munich transfer meeting. In addition to the center forward position, Bayern have reportedly identified defensive midfield as one of the problem areas in the current squad.

That speaks for a Kovacic departure from Chelsea

FC Bayern is now apparently accommodating that the troubled Chelsea also have to rethink their squad. Kovacic could be a farewell candidate, according to The Evening Standard given the high level of competition since the arrival of record-breaking signing Enzo Fernández and the recovery of N’Golo Kanté at the Blues.

The contract of the 28-year-old Kovacic, who has previously played at the highest European level with Inter Milan and Real Madrid, is only dated in London until 2024. With a transfer, Chelsea could ultimately balance its balance sheet and reduce the high squad costs, which were mainly caused by investments by club boss Todd Boehly.

Another plus for Bayern, if you believe the report: Chelsea would be reluctant to give Mateo Kovacic to a direct Premier League competitor. A deal with a club outside of England would be the preferred scenario.

The top Munich club has meanwhile also recently been linked to midfield star Casemiro from Manchester United. In Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig, who is said to have already completed the medical checks at FC Bayern, there is also another man for the headquarters with one leg in Munich.
