This Bayern Munich forward has been told he is surplus to requirements at the Allianz Arena and that has led to a raft of clubs vying for this German international’s signature.
Bayern Munich will sell Lukas Podolski in January. (Daily Star)
Bayern Munich boss Jurgen Klinsmann has hinted Lukas Podolski could be up for sale in January.
Manchester City and Tottenham are interested in the German international and Klinsmann said: “Podolski has two monsters (Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose) here ahead of him and has yet to prove himself better than either of them. It is not a pleasant situation for Lukas. He cannot be satisfied being a substitute.” (tribalfootball.com)
Thirty goals in 57 internationals clearly counts for little as former Tottenham legend Klinsmann clearly sees Podolski as firmly down the pecking order. But that will come as good news for Juande Ramos, who is said to be a big fan of the stylish Poland-born finisher. The £12m rated Podolski had a pretty solid Euro 2008 and he probably would have hoped to have been more of a first-team starter under the new boss. But it hasn’t happened yet and it appears that the Bundesliga champions have decided to cash in rather than hold on to an unhappy player. Their loss could well be either Spurs’ or Manchester City’s gain. Do Tottenham fans think another striker is needed at White Hart Lane?
