Bayern Munich is actively engaged in ongoing negotiations as the impending deadline day on Friday looms large. The Bavarian football club is diligently exploring avenues to bolster their squad, with a keen focus on acquiring the services of a midfielder within the dwindling span of the transfer window’s final two days.

Throughout the duration of the summer, Thomas Tuchel’s strategic inclinations have consistently inclined towards securing a proficient defensive midfielder.

In the realm of accomplishments, Joao Palhinha showcased his prowess on the field during his tenure at Fulham, actively participating in 37 matches and successfully netting 4 goals. His contributions extended onto the international stage as well, donning Portugal’s jersey for 21 matches and skillfully registering 2 goals.

Reliable sources, Sport1 and Bild, have unveiled Bayern Munich’s distinct interest in enlisting the talents of Fulham’s Joao Palhinha as an invaluable addition to their midfield roster, all prior to the impending deadline day. The footballing fraternity anticipates Bayern’s forthcoming endeavor, expecting a formal bid to be tabled for the accomplished Portuguese midfielder in the near future. Evidently, Fulham’s stance on the matter is not a lenient one, having previously turned down a substantial offer of £50 million from West Ham United.
