The ongoing summer transfer window is monumental for Bayern Munich. After enjoying success over the last decade, Bayern want to make radical changes in the squad. The club chiefs want a squad overhaul after enduring a trophyless campaign,

The Bavarian club has been aggressive in their approach to getting deals done this summer. They have already signed Hiroki Ito from VfB Stuttgart to strengthen the defense, while talks continue for Joao Palhinha and Jonathan Tah. Both players have already agreed personal terms with Die Roten.

Bayern are also close to signing Michael Olise from Crystal Palace. They beat competition from several Premier League clubs to sign the French forward. Rekordmeister have also started negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for Xavi Simons.

Apart from the goalkeeper, Bayern are looking to strengthen the other three departments of the squad. The changes are radical, but Jamal Musiala is optimistic about the impact of the squad overhaul. While talking to AZ (via iMiaSanMia), Musiala believes that the summer transfers will help Bayern to compete on all fronts next season. The German midfielder hopes to reach the Champions League final since there is an added incentive to play at Allianz Arena.

"Changes can always be positive. We will definitely do everything we can to ensure that the atmosphere is good and that we quickly internalize the ideas of the new coach Vincent Kompany. And then of course we will try to get as far as possible - ideally to the final."

Bayern will make tough decisions this summer. They have six senior players on the departures list. Die Roten want to trim the wage bill and make space for new arrivals. The future of several senior players will be resolved after the Euros. Die Roten are aiming to conclude deals for arrivals before the pre-season.

Musiala is part of Bayern’s long-term plans. The Bavarian club wants to reward him with a new long-term deal. He has two years left on his contract, but Die Roten want to secure his future amidst interest from the Premier League.

The young attacking midfielder has been in sublime form for Germany at the Euros. He has scored two goals in three games for Germany. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has a crucial role to play if Germany wants to win the tournament. Bayern will hope a good Euros will provide the ideal springboard for Musiala to have a strong 2024/25 campaign.
