The current summer transfer window has been unique. In the last couple of months, there have been numerous big-money signings across Europe, with Lionel Messi joining PSG is the latest blockbuster signing. However, things have been relatively quiet for few big clubs such as Bayern Munich.

Die Roten confirmed the signings of Dayot Upamecano and Omar Richards (free transfer) before the end of the last season. Meanwhile, Sven Ulreich arrived on a free transfer in July once Alexander Nubel sealed a loan move to Monaco.

Since completing these three deals, the club chiefs have been consistently insisting that there will be no big-money signings. However, Die Roten continues to monitor the market to make further signings.

The main reason for slow movement has been largely due to the club’s inability to generate funds through sales. The German Champions is reportedly ready to cash in for five players, but there have been no permanent departures from the first team until now.

The latest reports in France suggest that Die Roten is ready to listen to offers close to €10 million for Corentin Tolisso. Any move for RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer will depend on the money raised from the departure of Tolisso. Similarly, there have been no concrete offers for Mickael Cuisance.

It is a well-known fact that Rekordmeister also needs a right-back, but they will have to first find a club for Bouna Sarr. The French full-back has struggled with form and injury during his debut season. Rekordmeister reportedly doesn’t consider him part of long-term plans, but there has been very little movement regarding a transfer.

Joshua Zirkzee was also linked with a permanent departure, but he eventually ended up joining Anderlecht on loan. Die Roten is finding it difficult to shift fringe players that have ultimately led to minimum transfer activity. All big clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, PSG,  are struggling to get good money for fringe players.

However, there is a good possibility of a busy end of the window for Die Roten. As the deadline nears, clubs will be looking to strengthen the squad, but Rekordmeister may have to listen to cut-price offers. The German Champions followed a similar approach last summer and eventually addressed all required positions (four first-team signings) in the last week of the transfer window. Die Roten also found clubs for fringe players through deals that involved loan offer with an option to buy. Going by a similar trend, this summer window could also have a similar ending as last year.
