Sadio Mané and Matthijs de Ligt: Bayern Munich is involved in the really big changes during this transfer period. Bayern legend and TV expert Lothar Matthäus is now criticizing his old club for their behavior in the Robert Lewandowski case.
Accusation of double standards: Germany’s record national player Lothar Matthäus once again targeted FC Bayern in his “Sky” column. The 61-year-old accuses the Munich team of double standards in their work on the transfer market – this mainly applies to the “Basta” refusal to negotiate with FC Barcelona about star striker Robert Lewandowski.
Short, compact, clear
Comparison to Mané and De Ligt: Matthäus writes: “Bayern have gratefully accepted that both Mane and now de Ligt have at least deposited internally with their club that they want to go to Bayern and that the clubs may find a solution. This usually speeds up a transfer because most clubs then try to get a reasonable fee for the player who is willing to change.”
Bayern should let Lewandowski go: Lewandowski did the same and confessed to Barcelona, says Matthäus. He doesn’t understand why you don’t let a “deserving player go for a reasonable fee of 40 million euros”. He accuses Bayern: “It’s okay to lure other players to Munich under similar conditions, but obviously not to fulfill your own wishes. That is too bad.”
