Expensive obligation looming? Hoeneß can imagine a 100 million transfer at Bayern


FC Bayern Honorary President Uli Hoeneß considers transfers in the hundreds of millions possible. He is still against a transfer from Harry Kane.

FC Bayern Honorary President Uli Hoeneß considers transfers in the hundreds of millions possible.

He is still against a transfer from Harry Kane.

Munich – In September 2013, Gareth Bale switched from Tottenham to Real Madrid for the record fee of 101 million euros at the time, the first time a player had changed the club for a three-digit million sum.

A lot of time has passed since then, and a dozen other stars have changed clubs for even more money since then.

FC Bayern has so far refrained from making transfers in this price range, as Uli Hoeneß recently indicated, but this could change soon.

FC Bayern: Lucas Hernández is Munich's record transfer with 80 million euros

The previous record transfer from Munich is Lucas Hernández, who moved from Atlético Madrid to the Isar in the summer of 2019 for a whopping 80 million euros.

Only last summer did Bayern sign Matthijs de Ligt, their second most expensive newcomer to date, and 67 million euros were transferred to Juventus Turin for the Dutchman's services.

The third most expensive signing is the transfer of Leroy Sané from Manchester City, the international cost Bayern 49 million euros.

Compared to other sums in top European football - Paris Saint-Germain, for example, paid more than 400 million euros for Neymar and Kylian Mbappé together - Bayern's transfer expenses are still manageable.

Nevertheless, the prices for suitable players are constantly rising, which of course did not go unnoticed by Uli Hoeneß.

The honorary president of FC Bayern recently reacted to Sky in relation to expensive transfers from Munich anything but negatively.

Uli Hoeneß considers a 100 million transfer possible: "I can imagine"

"I can imagine a player coming who costs 100 million euros," said the 71-year-old, who is also a member of the FC Bayern supervisory board.

At the same time, however, he opposed a transfer from attacker Harry Kane, who has been associated with Bayern for a long time.

Hoeneß is obviously skeptical about a possible commitment from the Englishman.

"He's almost 30 years old.

Last year, Tottenham turned down a €160m offer from City.

That's why I said it wouldn't be a transfer for FC Bayern," said Hoeneß about the England international, but immediately added: "But that's my private opinion.

I'm one of nine board members and if the other eight say he's going to be bought, then he's going to be bought.

We live in a democracy.”


Will Hasan Salihamidzic soon sign a player for a three-digit million sum?

Uli Hoeneß thinks this is realistic.

FC Bayern: Choupo-Moting's extension is a clear sign against a Kane transfer

Due to the contract extension of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who last Friday extended his expiring working paper by another year to 2024, Harry Kane is probably not a top priority for the time being.

Due to his many goals, including the important 2-0 win in the Champions League round of 16 against Paris, the 33-year-old is currently not allowing any sporting discussions about himself.

It is difficult to estimate whether Hoeneß will be right and FC Bayern will get a star for more than 100 million euros in the near future.

Although the German record champions are doing everything they can to prevent the competition from taking on the high transfer fees, Hernández could one day be replaced as a record transfer.

However, with a relatively high probability not by Kane, the opinion of Bayern maker Hoeneß is too important.
