He wore the jersey and was in Munich, how the transfer of 65 million failed for Bayern – behind the scenes


Bayern Munich have failed to sign a midfielder on the last day of the transfer window.

There was actually a total agreement between Bayern Munich and Fulham for Portuguese midfielder Joao Palhinas.

The reign ing champions of Germany had finalized the agreement with Fulham on the basis of an amount of 65 million euros.


The Portuguese representative had traveled to Munich, where he had passed the medical tests with the Bavarian club, and the presentation photos were ready.

But in the end his formalization did not happen, as Fulham failed to find a replacement for him and in the end blocked Palhinha’s transfer to Bayern.

This has made Bayern nervous about the fact that they failed to find a replacement for Ryan Gravenberch, who they sold to Liverpool.

In addition, two more transfers fell through for Bayern in the final minutes of the transfer window.

The Bavarians wanted to bring Armel Bella Kotchap from Southampton and Trevor Chalobah from Chelsea.

In the end none of these players worked out at Bayern, meaning Thomas Tuchel was left without a target replacement for Benjamin Pavard, who left for Inter.
