When it comes to the transfer market, Bayern are simply one of the best in the business.
It’s claimed by Spanish media that Bayern Munich are willing to buy Barcelona midfielder Pedri.
Barcelona spent 20 million euros to sign the Spain international from Las Palmas in 2019. The 18-year-old has five years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.
The midfielder has featured in 4 matches for Barcelona this term in all competitions.
The 18-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain. Pedri has represented Spain at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-21 and Under-23 level, winning 13 caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in March 2021. As a member of Spain national football team, Pedri won 10 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Bayern.
By the club’s own admission, Barcelona midfielder Pedri is Bayern’s number one transfer target. The report claims that Bayern Munich manager has extensively scouted Pedri and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Julian Nagelsmann will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the Barcelona midfielder is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
The German giants are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
La Liga player is highly talented and he has a big future ahead of himself. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Bayern Munich are willing to break the bank to sign whizkid Pedri from Barcelona. The German giants allegedly aren’t phased by the one billion euro release clause placed in Pedri’s contract and are even willing to quadruple his current pay packet to lure him into a move, according to AS. Barca won’t want to let their prized asset go, but Bayern hope that their mega transfer offer that will exceed the £68 million they paid for Lucas Hernandez a few years ago will force the Spanish side to listen, AS claim. The Catalan giants are in a precarious financial position and despite their reluctance to let Pedri leave, they could possibly be swayed by the exorbitant fee Bayern plan on dangling in front of them. Bayern aren’t wasting any time and AS report that they may even launch a bid for the 18-year-old this winter. And if not, they will make a move for him by next season at the latest.”
