Will Stade Rennais accept?
RMC Sport report that Bayern Munich have submitted an offer for Stade Rennais’ 17-year-old Mathys Tel. The amount of the proposal is unknown at this stage.
Tel, who often plays on the left or in the middle of the attack, has just won the Euro U-17 with France, scoring two goals and earning the captain’s armband along the way.
RMC Sport hint that with Lewandowski’s departure, Tel could see a chance to play for Bayern Munich’s first team, although Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Sadio Mane remain in competition for the centre-forward position.
Mathys Tel is incredibly talented and would surely be a boon for Bayern if he were to sign, but the chances of that happening are very low. News of a potential move for Tel follows Bayern’s attempt to sign another 17-year-old French star in the making, Ayman Kari. The difference between Kari and Tel in this situation is that Kari’s contract with his current employers, Paris Saint Germain, has already expired, which means Bayern could have signed him without a transfer fee, while Tel has two more. years on his contract.
Inking Tel would require a mammoth transfer fee, which Bayern might not want to pay with more potential business to do this summer. Moreover, Tel already managed to get a few first-team minutes for Stade Rennais last season. His next season for Rennes is set to be a real breakout season, so why would he trade it for less playing time with Bayern? Stranger things have happened, but this transfer seems very unlikely.
