Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has fueled speculation about a potential signing by expressing his desire to have Kylian Mbappe on his team. In a recent interview with Canal+, Tuchel praised the talented French forward, describing him as "extraordinary" and highlighting his intelligence on the field.

"Kylian is Kylian, he's extraordinary. He's very intelligent, and we have a good relationship. And if he wants to come, I'll pick him up on a bicycle," commented Tuchel, indicating his admiration for the player and his willingness to welcome him to Bayern with open arms.

However, despite Tuchel's aspirations, Sport1 reports that a potential Mbappe transfer to Bayern next summer may be unrealistic. According to the source, if the player ever considers joining the Bavarian team, he would have to make significant financial sacrifices. The situation is likened to the club president's stance, who warns that transfers like Harry Kane's, involving astronomical figures, should not become a common practice.

"The type of transfer like Harry Kane's should not become a regular thing," said the Bayern Munich president, emphasizing the need to maintain financial balance in football and avoid excessive expenditures that could impact the club's economic stability.

This comment from the Bayern chief suggests a cautious and aware stance regarding the importance of maintaining sustainable financial management in modern football, even when dealing with stars of Kylian Mbappe's caliber. While Tuchel expresses his desire to have the French forward, the economic viability of such a move becomes a crucial issue that could determine the fate of one of the most sought-after players in the world.
