Bayern Munich will not compete with Manchester United and Liverpool for Randal Kolo Muani, despite previous reports suggesting they would join the race.
According to Florian Plettenberg, Bayern do not plan to make an offer for Muani in the summer, though they will be seeking a new striker to adequately replace Robert Lewandowski.

United and Liverpool are both reportedly preparing to rival one another in the transfer market for the Frenchman’s signature. Jurgen Klopp could opt for more firepower in attack given Mohamed Salah’s lack of contributions, Cody Gakpo’s struggles to find the back of the net and Darwin Nunez’s lacklustre finishing.
