‘How the hell did Bayern Munich come up with’ Kim Min-jae’s backup option is Clément Langlais?


Bayern Munich have been linked with Clément Langlais.

Barcelona’s specialized media outlet ‘Varsa Blaugrana’ reported on July 7 (KST), “Lange has struggled on loan at Aston Villa this season and has been linked to Munich. His only appearance under Unai Emery this season has been in the UEFA Europa League (UEL). According to reports in Germany, the Bavarians see Langlais as a potential backup,” the report said.

“The Bavarians are looking for potential options after injuries to Kim Min-jae and Matthijs de Ligt. Barcelona are certain to offload Lange if they can. His current contract expires in 2026, but he has no future at Barcelona. Xavi Hernandez already has a number of promising central defenders at his disposal,” he added.

This season, Munich went undefeated in the German Bundesliga and qualified early for the UEFA Champions League (UCL). While this might seem like cruising, it’s anything but. The defense has been shaky, especially the center back line. While Matthijs de Ligt and Dayo Upamecano have taken turns with injuries, Kim Min-Jae has been the only one to stay in form.

Come January, it’s an emergency. That’s because the South Korean international will be participating in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup. Munich have been linked with defenders from all over Europe. From rumors of a Jerome Boateng return to Takehiro Tomiyasu and Eric Dier, the Bavarians are facing an urgent situation.

In the midst of all this, Langlais has been mentioned. Lange grew up in Nancy and made his debut in the French Ligue 1. The next step was Spain. After joining Sevilla, he played in the Spanish La Liga and Champions League (UCL). He was noticed as a left-footed center back, a rarity in modern football.

Next up was mega-club Barcelona. He arrived at the Camp Nou in 2018 for a transfer fee of €35.9 million. He was consistently given chances, but the results were disappointing. Despite his buildup ability, he failed to live up to expectations, making mistakes big and small in every game. 토토사이트

With his playing time plummeting, Linglet made his first England appearance of his career last season on loan at Tottenham. He formed a center-back line with Christian Romero and Eric Dier, but couldn’t help his club’s struggles. Eventually, Lenglet returned to Barcelona without a full transfer. He immediately joined Villa on loan, but hasn’t been given a chance. It is possible that the former World Cup winner could be heading to Munich as a backup to Kim Min-jae.
