Thomas Tuchel 'wants a seven-man clear-out' at Bayern Munich this summer, Sadio Mane could be the headline departure
| Last updated
Thomas Tuchel is planning to sell SEVEN Bayern Munich stars this summer, according to stunning reports.
Tuchel, who joined Bayern in March, guided the club to an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title on the final day of the season.
Despite helping the German giants to league glory, the 49-year-old wants a major summer overhaul at the club ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
He left Liverpool to move to Bayern in a transfer worth £35 million but endured an underwhelming campaign in his debut season in Germany.
The Senegalese scored just 12 goals in all competitions as he failed to replicate his Premier League form.
Bayern are already prepared to listen to offers for the 31-year-old, with Newcastle United thought to be keen on luring him back to England's top flight.
Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry are also on the list, with Tuchel looking to reinforce his attack ahead of the new season.
Goalkeeper Alexander Nubel, right-back Bouna Sarr and midfielder Marcelo Sabitzer, who joined Manchester United on loan in January, are also free to leave.
Defender Benjamin Pavard rounds off the seven-strong list after opting against signing a new deal at Bayern.
The departures will allow Tuchel to recruit new players, with the likes of Tottenham's Harry Kane, West Ham United's Declan Rice and Napoli's Victor Osimhen linked with a move to Bayern.
The club are also thought to be keeping tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt starlet Randal Kolo Muani.
Bayern appear set for a busy transfer window as Tuchel aims to stamp his identity on the team.
