Report: Niklas Sule linked with Bayern Munich exit amid Chelsea interest
Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle could be heading for the exit gate this summer, according to reports.
The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent months, with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel looking to strengthen his bottom line to mount a sustained title challenge next season.
Following his Champions League victory, club owner Roman Abramovich is ready to back the German manager and build on the European glory of West Londoners by introducing new names to the squad.
Chelsea have watched over several of the best center-backs ahead of the new campaign and, with uncertainty surrounding Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen’s future at the club, the club could sign a world-class defender ahead of the new campaign. .
Chelsea have been ‘very linked’ to the defender, and Bayern club officials said discussions were underway with the player’s entourage – all options were on the table, but a final decision on the player’s future has not yet been taken.
The Hoffenheim academy graduate, who joined the Bavarians in 2017, has recorded 20 league appearances during the 2020/21 campaign.
It could happen that Bayern decides to take advantage of their star man to avoid the risk of losing him for free next year.
What Thomas Tuchel said about summer acquisitions
“Two or three (signings) could be very, very good. It is a constant thing to never deny change; that you always bring new energy, new guys who challenge old beliefs, who challenge everyone in training and in games, so I think that’s a good thing.
“We don’t need seven more and another full turnover because it’s also our job to keep improving, because we still have a young team and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again, that they are able to grow and But of course we have some ideas to make the group stronger, and I think that can always be a positive thing to challenge us all. “
