They may have been as you say offered pay rises but that would mean they would extend their contracts. Something that Bernardo and Jesus maybe don't want to do for different reasons.

Yes, that is a big part of increased wages. What should the club do, increase them anyway without the return on investment in contract length?

I understand that wouldn't be ideal, but it could prove problematic. Not so much for new signings but for established players.

I don't disagree. But contracts work on scale and length. Can't really remember any player leaving because of wages. Sane maybe to an extent, amongst other things including the national manager being Bayern's tool, but even he had an offee on the table, and the promise of more to come. Which is how the club seems to work with players.

Gutted to be losing Jesus, he’s been great for us and offers a lot with his movement. Now we‘ll be down to one striker again so when Haaland is out we’ll be stuck having to play square pegs in round holes again, unless Alvarez proves to be at least as good as Jesus.

You mean when Haaland is out stuck with a system that won the last 2 leagues. So I think we'll be okay.
