Bayern to make Vucinic bid

Bayern Munich are preparing to make Roma an offer for want-away striker Mirko Vucinic, according to reports.

Whispers of interest from Germany started to be heard last night and La Gazzetta dello Sport is today confirming those suggestions.

Vucinic has told the Giallorossi that he wants to leave the Stadio Olimpico this summer for a fresh challenge.

Roma don't want to sell, but they have given him permission to speak to other clubs.

Juventus and Inter have been linked with his services in Italy, but it now seems as if Bayern have joined the race.

The Bundesliga giants, according to the pink paper, have two offers ready to be faxed to the Italian capital.

They are ready to bid €18m or do a player plus cash deal that would see them hand over €15m and Diego Contento.

The latter, a 21-year-old defender, was born in Munich but his family originate from Naples.
