Bayern have an arrogance that is not only annoying, it is completely hypocritical. They are by far the wealthiest club in Germany, which gives them the pick of German talent (which is considerable), and allows them to cherrypick the best players from other clubs. They have the largest sponsorship deals and are ever-presents in the Champions League, usually winning the Bundesliga with 5 or more games to go....which begs the questions “How special can the Bundesliga be?” They talk of City ruining football, when they are one of the instigators of FFP to try to stop an “upstart” like City from ever being big enough to challenge them and their gravy train. Is that sport or is that simply cold, hard business? As for transfer fees, contrary to reports from Bayern, it is NOT City that have inflated the market, as evidenced by where we sit in the annals of record transfer fees paid by clubs. In fact, as City tried to grow they had to pay top dollar to attract talent, but never broke transfer records to do it. And, two seasons ago, he whole football world bent City over because they knew Pep had targeted a new defence to replace the old heads, especially the four full backs who were all well over 30. We spent “big” money to get players to fill vital positions, but compared to what was being paid for other players (Lukaku and Pogba across the road for starters) and what is being paid today (€100M+ for 19 yr old striker), we are nowhere near creating inflation. Now, let’s talk about Liverpool, Man Utd, Barca, Athleti, PSG, Real Madrid and you WILL find record transfer fees and plenty of them! IF City sell Leroy Sané this season, then Bayern will have to stump up BIG MONEY that will be a record transfer fee for them and City. Conversely, of course, they can simply keep doing what they have been doing, and tap him up and tell him he can have the moon and the stars if he walks to Munich for free next year. After all, THAT os what we are REALLY watching happen, isn’t it? Bayern just want him to string City along, not agree a new deal, and get him fresh as a daisy NEXT season, after having not played hardly games this season because he is holding out for the big pay day from Munich!!! I can only hope he signs a new 6 year deal and tells Bayern to “F right off!” but sadly I don’t think it will happen, because the pressure being brought by the VERY TOP of German football, including his Germany coach and teammates, is disgusting!
