Is VfB striker Serhou Guirassy demanding too much salary for the Bayern move?

The striker is having the best season of his career. In the summer he would like to take the next step in sports. Also in terms of salary. Will this make it too expensive for FC Bayern?

Serhou Guirassy is VfB Stuttgart’s goal guarantee this season. The Guinean scored 20 goals in his 19 competitive games for the Swabians. He is the face of the Stuttgart team’s soaring, who are third after 23 match days and are clearly on course for the Champions League.

However, it is extremely uncertain whether the striker will continue to hunt for goals for coach Sebastian Hoeneß’s team next season. Because he is certain to have the interest of many wealthy top clubs.

Guirassy still has a contract with VfB that runs until 2026, but it includes an exit clause. We are talking about around 20 million euros.

As “Bild” reports, FC Bayern is also interested in Guirassy and has already discussed him internally.

As the report further shows, Guirassy also wants to make a big jump in salary in the event of a possible move. Apparently at least ten million euros annually. According to “Bild”, he is currently the top earner in Stuttgart with 3.5 million euros.

Ten million – an amount that could throw Bayern out of the applicant race. Because, it is said: You don’t want to pay a salary of such heights for a striker in the shadow of superstar Harry Kane.

Current Kane representative Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting collects about as much as Guirassy demands, but the 34-year-old, who is leaving the record champions at the end of the season, had a better negotiating position for his contract after Lewandowski’s departure.

So it’s also clear: Bayern have a need in the attack in the summer. Whether it will be Guirassy or a cheaper alternative remains to be seen.

Especially since the competition for the VfB goalscorer is fierce. From England, Manchester United and West Ham are said to be interested. It is currently unlikely that Guirassy will play in the Champions League with these clubs. According to the report, the 27-year-old has ruled out a move to Saudi Arabia.
