When Pep Guardiola joined Bayern Munich last week ending the most talked about managerial transfers moves off late, it is said that the ex-Barcelona coach had opted for the easiest of choices that was presented to him. With Bayern following a philosophy that suits him the most, Guardiola’s move will only strengthen the already strong side.
However, rumours suggest that Guardiola is all set to raid top talents across Europe and America with a budget worthy of €278M in a bid to further strengthen Bayern to compete in European competitions where they have failed in the recent past.
According to News source El Economista, Pep Guardiola will receive a giant sum of €278M by Bayern Munich to reshape the squad. And Brazilian youngster Neymar is a top target on Bayern Munich’s transfer wish list. Other players include Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze, Napoli’s Edison Cavani, Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko, Swansea City’s Michu and Barcelona Victor Valdes who recently declined the possibility of extending his current contract at the Camp Nou.
Fresh rumours are also linking Liverpool’s Luis Suarez with a transfer which would see him work under Guardiola.
The unique factor of Pep Guardiola’s presence at Bayern Munich as coach might be enough to tempt targeted stars for a move. Several transfer sagas are set to impact the market come summer 2013 as clubs may try to resist Bayern Munich.
No other club in the planet has ever splashed such a huge amount in a single transfer market and it is very unlikely that Bayern will end up signing all of these players this summer but it will also not be surprising to see one of the top talents who are linked make a move to Germany.
