‘Nice to meet you, KIM!’ Bayern scouted Palinha as a substitute for an armed midfielder…Transfer fee of 76.2 billion

Bayern Munich have signed João Palinha.
The BBC reported on the 4th (Korea time) that “Bayern Munich will complete the contract with Fulham midfielder João Palinha by adding an additional down payment of £4.2 million (about KRW 76.2 billion).”

Portuguese national midfielder Palinha is currently playing in UEFA Euro 2024 and is set to face France in the quarterfinals.

Initially, Bayern worked hard to recruit Palinha for a long time. It also sought to recruit him in 2023, but failed when the contract collapsed at the deadline of the transfer market.

Bayern, which began recruiting again a year later, paid a transfer fee for Fulham’s sale club record and succeeded in recruiting.

Palinha left Sporting Lisbon in 2022 and successfully transferred to Fulham. The transfer fee was around 17 million pounds (about 30 billion won). He also won the Fulham Player of the Year award for the 2022-2023 season.

Palinha, a 190-centimeter giant, is a midfielder who uses his strong physique to gain the upper hand in competition with opponents. In the 2022-2023 season, he attempted 144 tackles and ranked first in the number of tackles in the English Premier League. As he excels at blocking opponents, he can greatly help the defense line in which Kim Min-jae will play.

Meanwhile, Bayern are eyeing the sale of midfielder Leon Goretzka this summer. Goretzka, who joined Bayern in 2018, has grown into a key midfielder, adding energy to his team’s midfield. However, he has not been able to find his true form since Thomas Tuchel took over in the 2022-2023 season. 먹튀검증

According to Germany, Goretzka is at the top of Bayern’s sell-off list. The problem is that there are currently no clubs interested in him, signed with the team until 2026, and he is not motivated to move because he is receiving a large salary.

Goretzka has not joined the German national team for the 2024 UEFA Euro. Coach Julian Nagelsmann reportedly did not choose Goretzka because he would quickly become dissatisfied if Goretzka fails to start.
