Serge Gnabry joins Bayern Munich

Serge Gnabry in talks for transfer again after leaving Arsenal, but not to Bayern Munich


When Serge Gnabry left Arsenal and signed for Werder Bremen there were claims it was all part of some elaborate plan which would see him at Bayer Munich next season.

Arsene Wenger sanctioned a sale for a relatively low fee, around £5m, because Gnabry was looking for first team football and didn’t think he could get that at Arsenal. The player only having a year left on his contract forced Wenger’s hand further.

The 21 year old’s last three games have been perhaps the best strung together of his career, with three goals and excellent all-round performances. Gnabry has been playing mainly on the left, but has also been deployed through the middle.

At Arsenal the left has this season seen Alex Iwobi get a lot of game time, had circumstances been different that could easily have been Gnabry.

Now he could be on the move again, and not to Bayern Munich. SportBild report discussions between the player’s camp and Hoffenheim have been ongoing. With a release clause of under €10m, Hoffenheim could easily do a deal.

Last season Werder Bremen finished 13th, and Hoffenheim 15th. This season sees the former in 8th and the latter in 3rd, having an excellent campaign. Next season, who knows? Below Bayern Munich there’s always a lot of movement and ups and downs.

Yet SportBild say Gnabry is keen on the move, despite settling well at Werder Bremen and being given the platform to build his career. He’s said to be happy with Hoffenheim’s coach and hopeful of European competition.

It would seem like impatience from the 21 year old to make what in a year or two could look a sideways step, but he was keen to leave Arsenal and if Hoffenheim is what he wants then Hoffenheim is likely what Gnabry will get.

Don't think so. Baumann already denied it a couple of times, and Gnabry seems willing to stay. At least for one more season.

What do I have to do with the rumour? They're talking about "advanced talks" between Gnabry and Hoffenheim, so there must be something to it.

I don't know, in my opinion, it would be silly of him to change the club again, despite the chance to play in Europe next season with Hoffenheim. Gnabry is developing well, Werder is the perfect place for him to build on and then leave for a bigger club in a year or two. We are definitely on the right course and we finally have a team that functions as a unit, so even if he were to leave, I'm not really bothered, to be honest. I'd love it if he stayed, but if he doesn't want to, then farewell - we have a lot of young, talented players who want to be here and I'm sure we'd compensate his departure one way or another. I have a lot of hopes for Kainz, for example, and really hope to see his breakthrough next season.

Nah, I wanna keep him. Squeeze some value out. Fucking sick of these clauses though. If Gnabry has a good next season we could easily ask some dumb cunts (probs Dortmund or EPL team) to pay up 20mil.

Ideally, I want to keep him too, but if the release clause is met and he wants to move, there's nothing we can do. Still, judging by his and his father's comments as well as Baumann's interviews, it seems like he intends to stay, but there's absolutely nothing certain these days.

A much more worrying rumour for me is the one about Junuzovic leaving. With Fritz most likely retiring and Bargfrede spending 98% of the season injured, we will have to find some new replacements either way. I like how Maxi Eggestein has developed so far, but we can't plan with only him and Delaney...

Juno must stay, he and Delaney are baller.

How come Liverpool can just ignore release clauses in contracts and we can't! Fuck life. Also, the sooner Fritz retires the better.

Yeah sure, Fritz is way past it, but whether he retires or not, we'll need to strengthen our midfield in the summer regardless. I completely forgot that Grillitsch is leaving as well. So that leaves just Delaney, Junuzovic and Maxi Eggestein for central miedfeld. Now we've been linked with Darmstadt's Gondorf, but that's someone for the depth of squad at most. Geis would be an interesting option to consider!

Would love me some Geis action. Would also love another stupidly good midfielder for under 2 mil from some rando league ala Juno and Delaney.

Delaney is Baumann's Königstransfer for sure; didn't expect him to be THAT good :x  I hope he'll surprise us with someone similar during the summer break again, hehe. 

Not to forget that Augustinsson is joining us this summer too; another one to watch, and I'm even more excited because he's a left back!

Selke could be coming back (apparently he's willing to accept much lower wages too).

It would also be great if Sané convinced his brother to join us :D

Delaney is a fantastic player. I'm so envious of Bremen's persistence with scouring local European leagues for rising talents. Sure, it doesn't always work out (Johannsson, Kleinheisler), but oftentimes it does (Junuzovic, Delaney), and often you have players who show signs of genuine potential (Kainz). All in all, it's low risk with decent potential for reward. 

As for Gnably, really hope this move works out lol. He has undoubtedly been a revelation, and I'm convinced his ability was a huge component to Bremen's turnaround. An electric, athletic player like this can be was instrumental in sparking a team's sense of belief, even when all the cards are against them.

We would have turned a profit though. We wouldn't buy him for 3 and he sold to Leverkusen for $15 mio

I watched a good bit of Delaney on TV when I moved over here, and when I saw how easily Bremen got him, I was stunned. 

There's stupidly underrated talent in the smaller leagues around Europe.

We also got Augustinsson for just 4.5 mil Euro as well, I'm quite excited about him too!

As for Delaney, he's already been a revelation since joining us in January, I can't wait to see how good he'll be once he settles.

Always looked solid when I've seen him, and technically decent too, but Delaney always looked acres ahead of everyone else in the league.

We should offer him a new contract and increase the buy-out clause.

I say this everytime but still can't believe we didn't give him more of a chance. That loan to West Brom fucked everything up because Tony Pulis didn't know what the fuck to do with him. Surprising thing was the fact more teams didn't come in for him especially after his performances at the Olympics. There was Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen being mentioned with no one in between. At £5m as well, was a bargain then and looks like theft now.

It's a weird deal, all in all. At first there were talks that Bayern have bought him and loaned him out to us directly, then there were talks of Werder buying him but putting a clause in his contract so he could join Bayern for a fixed amount of money, then they said there's a generic 8 million buyout clause for any club, and now they are saying there is no buyout clause at all xD I'm completely confused. Just yesterday Gnabry said that he feels at home in Bremen though.

RB are apparently interested in him now as well, and they might use Selke in a sort of exchange deal. Hope not.

Clubs with young, technical players should be wary to send players off to Pulis ever again. The same happened to Alex Pritchard from Spurs. Had a tremendous season with Brentford in the Championship, earned a new contract at Spurs and direct praise from Poch, then goes off to Pulis, and goes down the toilet of English football. He's clueless with such players, utterly clueless. Just because it's a Prem loan means sweet fuck all. Would rather send players off to Scotland than him.

So Hoffenheim are apparently close to agreeing personal terms with Gnabry, he will probably leave for around 10 million according to media reports. 

Danke für die Tore und Tschüß.
