Bayern Munich will not be signing a striker during the January transfer window, according to Sky in Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.
The Bundesliga champions parted ways with Robert Lewandowski towards the end of the summer window after a long and obviously tedious saga, during which the 34-year-old Poland captain insisted on being sold to Barcelona while Bayern did everything they thought they should to keep him. In the end they accepted a €50m proposal from the Catalans and off he went, scoring for fun in La Liga at the moment.
Meanwhile, Bayern have been struggling to win matches lately, with three draws and a defeat on the bounce putting them in fifth place in the Bundesliga table at the moment, five points behind surprise leaders Union Berlin. There is belief among the press in Germany that the Bavarians will eventually move for a No. 9, but for the time being, head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who still has the trust of the club hierarchy, is expected to deal with the problems with the players he’s already got at his disposal.
