Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel recently had a humorous take on the German giants possibly pursuing Kylian Mbappé. The 24-year-old will become a free agent after this 2023-24 season. So, any top European club wants to land the Frenchman.
The Bundesliga side wouldn’t hesitate to bring the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner. Nonetheless, they are wise with their finances. As a result, Tuchel might have thought that was the case.
Nonetheless, SPORT1’s Kerry Hau reports that while Tuchel deemed a move for his former player unrealistic, neither he nor the club has entirely dismissed the idea, keeping the door open for a potential transfer.

Mbappé has garnered admiration from vital figures within the club, including Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Discussions surrounding Mbappé’s possible inclusion in the team have been loosely circulating among the club’s leadership, indicating a genuine interest should the right opportunity arise.
Bayern Munich adheres to a strict internal salary cap of €25 million annually. Should Mbappé entertain joining the Bundesliga giants, he must make significant concessions in his salary expectations.
This requirement places the onus on Mbappé to weigh the financial benefits against the potential for success on the field. It will be interesting to see whether Bayern Munich enters the race and challenges Real Madrid for the winger next summer.
