Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn has admitted that Bayern are in search for a new defender.
The Bavarians are set to lose David Alaba this summer and hence a replacement of the top level is a priority for Munich.
We’re losing David Alaba,” Kahn said.
“We made him an offer a while ago. He didn’t accept this offer.
“I also understand that a player like him, who’s been at Bayern Munich for a long time, is looking for a new challenge now.
“We have to think about who could be an adequate replacement for David.
“As a player, I’d love to have played with Ramos, but there’s nothing in [him coming to Bayern].”
Then attention turned to the RB Leipzig defender:
“He’s in demand across Europe.
“This season, he’s shown the quality that he has. Of course, we’re also in talks.
“He’s a player that lots of Europe’s biggest clubs want and Bayern are currently the most successful club in the world in sporting terms.
“We’re especially attractive for these types of players at the moment.”
While Bayern are set to make no money from Alaba’s departure, it will cost them a fortune to land Upamecano from Leipzig.
