Kovacic not on Bayern's radar

Bayern Munich have no plans of signing Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic during the summer transfer window.

The Croatian is set to enter the final year of his contract this summer and this has led to suggestions that he could be sold.

A reunion with Thomas Tuchel at Bayern has been touted but Plettenberg has clarified that is unlikely to be the case.

The German champions already have an agreement to land Konrad Laimer on a free transfer to bolster their midfield.

Hence, they have no plans to pursue a deal for Kovacic and their main priority for the summer is on landing a striker.

Kovacic could still head for the Blues exit door, considering he has yet to negotiate a renewal with the club's hierarchy.

There are claims that he has spoken with Manchester City officials and we won't be surprised if they make an approach.

The Cityzens want an experienced midfielder to replace Ilkay Gundogan, who is expected to leave on a free transfer.
