Bayern Transfer Plans: Five In, Five Out?

The German rein cord champions trail leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga table by three points. Bayern, though, are still in the DFB-Pokal and the UEFA Champions League, which they will welcome Liverpool for the return leg of their last 16 clash on 13 March.

However, president Uli Hoeness recently admitted that the Bavarians are building a new team, with some older players being phased out while new faces will arrive at the Allianz Arena.

"As the English say, 'There's more to come!' If only you knew what we have planned for next season," he said on German TV show Doppelpass.

"But if we already announce who we have planned, then those who are not playing will become angry."

Bayern have already signed French World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard, who will join the club from Stuttgart at the end of the season for €35 million (R552 million). In addition, they have also been heavily linked with Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

This week, new reports from Bild and Sport Bild suggest that the German giants have activated the €80 million (R1.27 billion) release clause in Atletico Madrid's World Cup-winning defender Lucas Hernandez's contract in Spain, which would make him the club's record signing.

That deal, though, will reportedly only be announced after the current campaign is over, while it has also been claimed that RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has agreed personal terms with the Bavarians. The reported Liverpool target's current deal expires in 2020, and Bayern apparently believe Leipzig will agree to sell him after 2018/19 instead of losing him for free in 2020.

Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Kai Havertz is another name on Bayern's reported wish list, with Sport Bild estimating that an offer of €65 million (R1 billion) would be enough to persuade his club to let him go.

Meanwhile, club legends Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery will be free to go elsewhere at season's end, while it has been reported that Bayern could opt against activating the purchase option in James Rodriguez's loan deal with Real Madrid. Right-back Rafinha recently expressed his desire to leave the club too, while Renato Sanches is also among those who could soon leave the Allianz Arena.
