Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has made the leap to Bayern Munich's number one striker after Lewandowski's farewell. The Cameroonian's contract ends in the summer of 2023. Talks between the striker and those in charge are expected shortly. The 33-year-old probably has very special conditions for staying.
It's amazing how Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has managed to become so valuable for FC Bayern at an advanced age as a footballer. The veteran not only scores goals, but also plays extremely well for the team. The Bayern bosses have already announced that they would like to extend the attacker. However, according to media reports, the Cameroonian is expected to see another monstrous salary in the autumn of his career.
The salary is probably not the real sticking point. According to Sky editor Florian Plettenberg, Choupo-Moting no longer wants to be a backup, but only stay in Munich as a starter. On the other hand, should Harry Kane switch to Bayern Munich, the Cameroonian would most likely run away. It is to be expected that the talks with those responsible in Munich will drag on for quite a while. In addition to Kane, João Felix, Goncalo Ramos and Marcus Thuram are also rumored to be candidates for the Bayern storm. The situation is complicated for FC Bayern. This is a little reminiscent of the discussion about Lewandowski and Haaland and of course there is a risk that you will end up empty-handed again.
