With Harry Kane, the long-awaited nine finally came to FC Bayern, which had been sought after the departure of Robert Lewandowski since the summer of 2022. However, the Munich team had to put over 100 million euros on the table for the attacker. A large sum was also invested in signing defender Min-jae Kim (from SSC Napoli for €50m).
Most recently, the Munich team wanted to put millions more – a fee of up to 65 million euros was under discussion – in Joao Palhinha, who corresponded exactly to the six-man profile they were looking for. But although the Portuguese was already in Munich, had passed the medical check and probably already posed with the FC Bayern jersey, the transfer fell through at the last second because FC Fulham didn’t release Palhinha after all. An immense setback for the German record champions.
How does President Herbert Hainer assess the large expenses for Kane and Kim? What does the Bayern official say about Palhinha’s failed transfer? Were the people of Munich too sure of their cause? In the “double pass” Hainer will have to give answers.

They were replaced by Christoph Freund (new sporting director) and Jan-Christian Dreesen (new CEO). What does Bayern President Herbert Hainer expect from the new duo? Where should FC Bayern go in the 2023/24 season and beyond? Answers will be available from 11 a.m.
