FC Bayern became aware of a Brazilian at the Olympics.
Initial negotiations are apparently already underway with his club Ajax Amsterdam.
Munich / Tokyo - FC Bayern * is in the middle of preparing for the new season.
Gradually, the EM holidaymakers are also coming back to Säbener Straße *.
While the EM was over for a few weeks, another major event, the Olympics *, has been electrifying the sports world for a few days.
The Bayern stars are also following the Olympic Games in Tokyo and should pay particular attention to the football tournament.
The German team made a false start with the 2: 4 against Brazil.
After the happy 3-2 win against Saudi Arabia, the DFB-Elf needed another success in the last group game against the Ivory Coast in order to make it to the quarter-finals.
In the opening defeat against Brazil, in addition to three-packer Richarlison, Antony also turned the German team upside down.
FC Bayern is said to have already contacted the tricky offensive player, and Antony has now also expressed interest in Bayern for the first time.
FC Bayern: Brazilian Olympic star Antony identified as Costa successor
After Brazil 0-0 against Ivory Coast, Antony was approached about a possible move to Bayern.
The Ajax professional smiled noticeably, but was cautious.
“These questions are for my advisor and my family.
I'm very focused here, my thoughts are on these Olympics.
I hope that we can continue with this focus and secure qualification in the next game, ”said Antony.
At Bayern there is a need for action on the offensive wings after Douglas Costa has left home in Brazil to Gremio Porto Alegre.
With Leroy Sané, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman, only three suitable professionals are currently available.
Antony could succeed his compatriot.
The Brazilian sports portal
Globo Esporte claims
that Bayern have already contacted the player.
Ajax Amsterdam * is said to have even talked about the transfer.
FC Bayern: Antony as a Coman replacement?
Ajax calls for a mega transfer fee
Antony moved from Sao Paulo to Ajax a year ago for almost 16 million euros and scored nine goals and made eight assists in 32 games in the Eredivisie *.
In Amsterdam, the 21-year-old still has a contract until 2025. The problem: Ajax is now demanding double that for its offensive star.
According to Dutch media reports, it should be at least 30 million euros.
Too much for Bayern, who currently do not want to pay such a high sum in uncertain Corona times.
Unless there is still something going on on the side of the outflows. Talks with Kingsley Coman *, who still has a contract until 2023, have been interrupted. The Frenchman repeatedly flirted with a transfer to the Premier League *. Should a top offer of around 90 million euros arrive, the wing dribbler should probably go. Then the Antony personnel could also pick up speed. On Saturday, Bayern met their club Ajax in a test match, and conversations about the Brazilian may have been held on this occasion.
