Things have moved quickly for Bayern Munich in the ongoing summer transfer window. The Bavarian club has enjoyed successful outcomes in three deals for quality players. In the coming weeks, Die Roten may look to sign another forward since there is a big chance of Robert Lewandowski joining Barcelona this summer.

As things stand, it does look like VfB Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic will not be the forward Bayern will pursue if Lewandowski leaves Bavaria. According to Sport1, Die Roten has completely discarded the signing of Kalajdzic. It will now take a strange turn of events for Kalajdzic to end up in Bavaria.

The German Champions had planned to sign the Austrian forward if Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting had left Rekordmeister in this window. The Cameroon international was linked with a move away from the German Champions, but his agent has dismissed reports linking him with a departure.

Bayern had held talks with the representatives of Kaljdzic after the end of the Bundesliga campaign. At that point, it just looked like a matter of when rather than if for the move to go ahead. Borussia Dortmund was also heavily linked with the Austrian striker, but they have opted to sign Sebastian Haller from Ajax.

At one point, there was also a suggestion Die Roten could do a swap deal involving Joshua Zirkzee to sign the Austrian striker. Kalajdzic may end up signing an extension at Stuttgart or seal a move to England. There is a considerable amount of interest from the Premier League in the Austrian striker.

Meanwhile, Bayern will be looking for a proper number nine if Lewandowski seals a transfer to Barcelona. The likes of Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, and Sadio Mane can play as a striker, but Die Roten will still like to sign a number nine depending on how Lewandowski’s situation pans out.

Bayern is now open to parting ways with Lewandowski despite publicly ruling out a transfer. Barcelona will have to make sure that their third bid for the Polish striker is closer to Die Roten’s evaluation, which is reportedly close to €60 million. The transfer fee received for Lewandowski will most likely be reinvested in getting a replacement for him.

Meanwhile, Die Roten is also likely to make an offer for RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer. Nagelsmann is reportedly keen on working with the Austrian midfielder. The German coach also wants the club to replace Niklas Sule in this window by signing a central defender that can be a leader at the back.
