The summer transfer window is coming to an end in a fortnight. Bayern Munich has business to do in terms of both incomings and departures in the next two weeks. Along with focusing on the immediate needs of the squad, Die Roten is also developing a strategy for the next few transfer windows.

According to SportBild, Bayern is ready to focus on young German talent in the next few windows to bolster the squad. As per this report, Die Roten is eyeing deals for  Florian Wirtz, Ridle Baku, and Florian Neuhaus in the next few windows when the financial situation will be better due to the return of fans at Allianz Arena.

The German media outlet has also insisted that groundwork for all three players has already started. Since all three players have a big role and long contracts at their current clubs, the transfer fee will be hefty next summer.

Neuhaus has been consistently linked with Rekordmeister for much of 2021. The young German midfielder has been delivering impressive performances for Borussia Monchengladbach. Since the defending Bundesliga Champions currently need a midfielder, a move for Neuhaus was expected this summer. However, the big transfer fee has stopped the Bavarian club from making a move. Neuhaus reportedly has a release clause worth 40 million in his current deal at Monchengladbach.

Meanwhile, Wirtz has shone a lot for Bayer Leverkusen. Similar to Kai Havertz, Wirtz is also tipped to develop into a top player for the German club. Leverkusen will command a significant fee for the youngster if Die Roten makes an approach next summer.

Die Roten has been previously linked with Baku, but he eventually left Mainz to join Wolfsburg. The young right-back will be much more expensive next summer since he will have three years left on his contract. As of now, Die Roten has found an internal solution for a right-back position through Josip Stanisic, but they may need a right-back in the long run if Benjamin Pavard moves in central defense.

Rekordmeister has always made sure that the core of the squad is German players, so it is not surprising to see them planning moves for these three young players. Getting all three in one window is likely to be a difficult task, but even getting two can be considered outstanding work from the Bavarian club.

For the remainder of this transfer window, Die Roten will be looking to strike deals for Marcel Sabitzer and Amine Adli. Meanwhile, Mickael Cuisance and Corentin Tolisso are likely to be significant departures before the end of the window.
