Will Randal Kolo Muani (right) replace Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (left) at Bayern Munich?
The winter break seems to be busier than FC Bayern would like.
In addition to the goalkeeper search, there are rumors about Choupo-Moting and Kolo Muani.
Munich – Hasan Salihamidzic actually did good preparatory work in the summer.
In its transfer policy, FC Bayern is always careful to send a good squad into the season so as not to be under pressure in the much more difficult winter transfer window.
This wish did not come true this year.
Randal Kolo Muani
Born: December 5, 1998 (age 24), Bondy, France
Club: Eintracht Frankfurt
Current season: 19 points in 23 games
Market value: 37 million euros
FC Bayern in winter stress: After the goalkeeper question, now also the striker question?
This is primarily due to the serious injuries suffered by Manuel Neuer (broken leg) and Lucas Hernandez (torn cruciate ligament).
A replacement is needed for the goalkeeper position, and many candidates are being traded around Yann Sommer, Bono and now Kevin Trapp.
The left-back position is only occupied by Alphonso Davies, whether Munich will still act here is open.
Question marks are now also appearing in the storm: Manchester United are said to be interested in a transfer from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting – already in winter.

Lightning exit of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting?
Manchester United probably interested
The German-Cameroonian's contract expires next summer, and talks about an extension are difficult.
While Choupo-Moting has put himself in a good position with his gala performances, FC Bayern have to weigh up whether to extend the contract with the 33-year-old or go straight for a new top striker.
“Choupo” is now allowed to talk to other clubs as his contract has less than six months remaining.
The Red Devils from Manchester are looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who has migrated to Saudi Arabia.
Bono immediately to Bayern?

Bayern rumors about Kolo Muani – Eintracht star probably wants to stay in Germany
And FC Bayern apparently has a plan B: According to the French newspaper
, the record champions are interested in Frankfurt World Cup star Randal Kolo Muani.
Manchester United also wants to get into poker and is apparently preparing an offer of 60 million euros.
The 24-year-old Frenchman would rather stay in Germany, which could increase Munich's chances.
In winter, however, Eintracht will almost certainly not give up their clippers.
And in view of Frankfurt's entry into the Champions League quarter-finals, staying is also attractive for him.
It looks different in summer.
Whether the striker carousel at FC Bayern will pick up speed in winter mainly depends on Choupo-Moting.
But things should get down to business by summer at the latest.
