The defensive department at Bayern Munich can undergo a few changes during the summer transfer window. Die Roten have consistently signed at least one center-back every summer since 2019. It wouldn’t be a big surprise if they sign one more in the summer as they look to overhaul the squad.

The arrival of a new center-back in the summer will certainly raise questions about the futures of other senior defenders in the squad. Bayern may have to cash in for one of the central defenders to make space for the new arrival. It does look like one of Italy’s big clubs has made one of Bayern’s defenders the top target for the summer.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via GIFN), Inter Milan have made Kim Min-jae their dream summer target to replace Francesco Acerbi. The South Korean defender is one of the three options Inter Milan may explore to replace Acerbi in the summer.

This report would have been easy to dismiss during the first half of the season since Kim Min-jae was playing regularly for Bayern. He became a first choice option for Thomas Tuchel since joining the club from Napoli in the last summer transfer window. The 26-year-old defender started all Bundesliga games during the first half of the season.

However, the last few weeks have been slightly tricky for Kim Min-jae. He is currently on the sidelines due to the good form of Eric Dier and Matthijs de Ligt. The South Korean defender may not start in next weekend’s Der Klassiker, but he is determined to win a place back in the starting XI.

Bayern are expected to make several changes in the squad during the summer transfer window after a disappointing Bundesliga campaign. The club chiefs reportedly believe a squad overhaul is necessary to enjoy sustained success over the next few seasons.

In such a scenario, the future of every player in the squad is up in the air. Kim Min-jae has been a successful transfer for Die Roten until now. He is currently going through a difficult phase, but his quality has been on display during the first half of the season. The South Korean’s future at the club will depend on Bayern’s summer plans.


Meanwhile, it does look like Alphonso Davies is a strong candidate to leave Bayern in the summer. The Bavarian club has made a final contract offer, which remains short of Davies’ demands. With Real Madrid showing concrete interest in Davies, a summer transfer will benefit all parties.
