After ending the search for a new coach by hiring Vincent Kompany from Burnley, Bayern Munich will focus on the squad-building process. The Bavarian club reportedly wants to sign five players in the summer. They are also seeking clarity about the long-term future of senior players in the squad.

Alphonso Davies and Bayern have reached an impasse in contract negotiations. The record Bundesliga champions offered him a final contract offer in March, but it was below the wage package Davies wanted. Die Roten reportedly set a deadline for the Canadian left-back but has not responded to the final contract offer. Davies has 12 months left on his contract at Die Roten.

Since there has been no breakthrough in talks with Davies, he was expected to leave Bavaria in the summer. Real Madrid have shown concrete interest in the Canadian full-back. However, the Spanish club is yet to start negotiations with Die Roten regarding a transfer. The latest update from Germany on this contract saga is positive for the Bavarian faithful.

According to Sky Sports in Germany, there is a possibility of a positive conclusion to the contract talks between Davies and Bayern. Vincent Kompany is eager to work with Davies next season. With Real Madrid yet to make an offer for Davies, he may end up signing a new deal at Bayern.

It will be a significant boost for Bayern’s transfer plans. Despite having a difficult campaign, Davies remains one of the best left-backs in Europe. Replacing him will be expensive. Moreover, he can end up leaving Bayern below his market value due to his contract situation.

With a new contract, Bayern can feel settled in the left-back position for the next position. Davies has yet to enter the best years of his career, making this contract renewal so crucial for Bayern. They cannot afford to lose another top player to Real Madrid.

After sorting the new deal for Davies, Bayern will hold talks with Leroy Sane and Joshua Kimmich regarding contract renewals after the European Championship. Sane wants to stay in Munich, while Bayern also want to offer him a contract. It is a matter of sitting down and negotiating the details of the new deal.

The situation of Joshua Kimmich is slightly different. Bayern are reportedly open to parting ways with him in the summer. The German midfielder has been heavily linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, and Barcelona in the last six months.
