Bayern Munich were close to completing a deal to sign Joao Palhinha from Fulham on Deadline Day, but the transfer didn’t happen in the end. A transfer fee of £65 million was reportedly agreed and the midfielder had flown out to undergo a medical, but the move was dependent on whether Fulham would secure a replacement. The Cottagers contacted Tottenham Hotspur about Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, but the Denmark international turned them down. In the end, the deadline arrived and Bayern were left frustrated.
However, as relayed by the Daily Mail, Palhinha’s agent claims the move to the Bundesliga champions has only been postponed. It remains to be seen whether Bayern complete the deal in January or next summer.
Palhinha only joined Fulham from Sporting Lisbon in 2022. Since then, he’s made a total of 43 appearances for the club, scoring five goals from his position at the midfield base. In the game Silva’s men played away to Arsenal in the third round of the Premier League campaign this term, the 28-year-old netted the equalizer that stunned the Emirates and set the final score at 2-2.
