Back to Club Business
After a week in London finalizing his appointment as England manager, David Beckham
has jetted back to Munich and is back to club business, with Bayern raking in the cash as players are sold.
Pushed out of the first team by January signing Ademilson, Romelu Lukaku
has now returned to the Premier League to join Everton with the Toffees paying a hefty 18 million sum for his services. The towering Belgian striker played for Chelsea and West Bromwich before and will be familiar with the English league.
"I wanted to stay, but there was simply no room for me," said Lukaku. "I am very excited about this new project at Everton. I want to be the one leading Everton to glory, and hopefully I can do that."
The second one out is Argentine defender Mateo Musacchio
, who was a rotation player last season under Beckham. The Bayern boss has revealed he is looking at other central defender targets, meaning the sale of Musacchio was due to happen sooner or later.
The defender has a World Cup medal to his name after his nation won the world competition on Russian soil, although he was a backup player for the majority of the World Cup campaign.
He will now ply his trade in the Serie A with Sampdoria, for a fee of 15 million.
has also made the move to ACF Fiorentina in Italy after the expiry of his contract with Bayern Munich. The Dutch defender was not favored by Beckham and has now seized the opportunity to leave the club.
Bayern youths Bright Martins
, Pavle Cecaric
and Yusuf Dadzie
have also left the club, to Mainz, VfL Bochum and Juventus respectively, with Bayern raking in a total of 3.5million.
