The history between German giants Bayern Munich and French behemoths PSG might grow even larger this summer according to the latest reports considering both organizations might be interested in signing the same player next July.

After meeting in the group stage of the 2018 Champions League, then in the final of the 2020 edition of the competition, the quarter-finals of the 2021 season, and one last time earlier in 2023 in the round of 16, FCB and PSG seem poised to fight each other in the summer transfer market.

One player that might put the two giants on a collision course is Lille's forward Jonathan David.

Although the French top-flight division is not really known for producing players already capable of playing at the top level, the truth is that it usually boasts a plethora of young talents worth signing early to further develop and turn into superstars. David is looking like the next one.

Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports Germany tweeted early Tuesday about Bayern's interest in signing Jonathan David next summer. According to the journalist, the club "are monitoring his situation" and have scouted him already this season.

Plettenberg's information also mentions Bayern's chief scout Markus Pilawa having "a good opinion" about David. However, there have not been "concrete talks" between new head coach Thomas Tuchel and the rest of the Bayern bosses "at this stage."

David is currently the top-joint scorer in Ligue 1 along with PSG forward Kylian Mbappe, each with 20 goals through MD31. Jonathan David is not expected to stay at Lille next season, and considering his great campaign the French club should do well selling while his value is at the highest.

dark. Next. PSG and Bayern Munich interested in a particular Napoli player

As is the case with many players linked to PSG, there is no report informing about any offer being submitted by the soon-to-be-French-champions, although David surely fits the new model getting imposed by Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaifi based around young players and, if possible, French ones.
