Bayern's typical MO

They won't publicly discuss *acquiring* a player until they've already had permission to contact them, or the deal is already done.

The English papers like to report a lot of crap and see what sticks to the wall. Not many actual quotes from Chelsea outside of Sarri saying (now) that he's going to play more, and Rudiger talking about how he was asked about life in Germany.

Bayern doesn't buy from the Prem often, so fans of football there don't see how this typically works with Bayern in Germany. If they openly talk about bringing in a player, it always happens.
