Bayern Munich’s season is not going according to plan. Nine points behind Borussia Dortmund, the Bavarian club are third place in the Bundesliga, a league that they have dominated for the last six seasons. The club need to get back to the top of German football as soon as possible, which is why many top players are on their radar. Reinforcements will be brought in January while some of the transfers are scheduled for next summer. The 28-time Bundesliga winners are looking to get into next season as strong as possible and Cengiz Under can help them do so.

Bayern Munich Set to Sign AS Roma Star Cengiz Under

Cengiz Under is attracting a lot of attention from top European clubs around the world. He is proving to be a great player and is set to leave Roma at the end of the season. The Turkish international scored three goals and assisted once in five Champions League starts. His league form is exceptional, scoring twice and assisting three times in 14 Serie A appearances. The 21-year-old is a crucial player for the Giallorossi, who are having a shaky season.

Italian giants Roma are underperforming this season. They are currently in seventh place, outside a Europa League spot. The results are very disappointing, especially for a club of this calibre. The poor form of the team is making players unhappy; top players could leave the club if they fail to qualify for any European competition. Bayern are taking advantage of the situation in the Italian capital.

According to ESPN, Under’s most likely destination is Munich. The German club have shortlisted players for January and next summer. The club are looking for reinforcements in the defence, as well as many other areas. The 2019/2020 season needs to be a great one for the five-time Champions League winners. Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are both set to leave in the summer, a good replacement is needed to fill the boots of the veterans. Cengiz Under is a worthy replacement and is still very young. Many expect him to shine in the years to come.

Roma are not too keen on the idea of selling one of their star men, though the sale might be necessary. Their season is going horribly, the players are demanding trophies and success. The club will take advantage of the situation, putting massive price tags on their players. Roma will make it clear that Under will not leave for a cheap fee, clubs should be ready to spend good money on the winger. As his time in Italy is likely to come to an end, a new challenge awaits. He is waiting to make his mark in Germany, with one of the best in Europe, Bayern Munich.
