The Global Munich
Not saying that Munich is not a global club. For generations Munich has a been a club that has been rooted in German players and coaches but that might be changing. Last years move for Martinez may have been the start of it.
Earlier this year, the German Giants tabbed former Barca manager Pep Guardiola to head the revolution. This is not your typical hire for Munich. In the past they would have targeted someone like Jurgen Klopp to run the show. The Guardiola hire shows that the largest club in German is up for more than more than German domination.
Then today more signs that Munich want to be global club. Rumors all over Europe are linking Munich to signing Neymar for 86 million pounds, according to the British press. The club is no stranger to signing Brazilian. Munich currently has three Brazilians on their roster, no of the quality or cost of Neymar. Munich brought the three in for a total of $30 million Euros.
Would getting Neymar allow Munich to be a force in Brazil? It might.
The changes are coming fast at the German giant, I want to see how this all ends.
