Bayern Munich are still in the hunt for Juan Palinha.
“The Bavarians are still keen on signing Palinha despite him re-signing with Fulham,” according to the Telegraph.
Palinha was linked to Munich last summer. At the time, the Bavarians were looking for a midfielder who could protect their backline and approached Palinha, who had been impressing in the Premier League (PL). Palinha was also keen to join the Bavarians, and it looked like a deal was on the cards.
But there was a catch. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who Fulham had been targeting as Palinha’s replacement, opted to stay. It was already being reported locally that Palinha was on his way to Munich, and he had even undergone a medical. With the official announcement literally just around the corner, the move to Munich fell through when Joaquim refused to join Fulham.
Palinha was frustrated to be staying at Fulham. Germany’s Bild reported that Palinha spoke to coach Thomas Tuchel in tears after the transfer window closed without a move to Munich. Fulham manager Marco Silva also consoled Palinha via local media.아톰카지노
After getting over his grief, Palinha signed a new contract with Fulham, indicating that he is committed to the club for now. His contract runs until 2028. However, it is believed that Munich will once again make a bid for Palinha in the January transfer window, despite the fact that he has signed a long-term deal.
According to the Telegraph, “Palinha has signed a new contract with Fulham until 2028 after a move to Munich fell through on summer transfer deadline day. However, Palinha is still Tuchel’s preferred player. Tuchel is looking to strengthen his squad with the signing of Palinha.”
“Palinha’s new contract reportedly does not include a buyout clause. Munich had planned to invest £55 million, but will have to increase the amount,” explaining that Palinha’s buyout clause was not set.
This gives Fulham the upper hand in the negotiations, as Munich will have to match Fulham’s asking price in order to sign Palinha. Munich will have to offer a higher price than they did in the summer transfer window.
