Bayern Munich is still determined to sign Tuchel.
“Bayern Munich is planning to try to sign Trevor Chalobah, 24, on loan in the January transfer market after failing to sign him this summer,” the London Evening Standard reported on July 15 (KST).
The Bavarians have invested heavily in reinforcements this summer. The Bavarians have made a series of top-class signings, including Harry Kane and Kim Min-Jae, to usher in a new era.
The squad is not without its shortcomings. The defense is not as deep as it could be, as they failed to bring in a replacement for Vincent Favre, who left just before the transfer window closed.
It’s been argued that they don’t have enough depth to handle their European schedule. Among the big clubs that have at least four center backs, Munich only has Kim Min-Jae, Matthijs de Ligt, and Dayo Upamecano.메이저사이트
It’s not like they haven’t tried to sign a center back. The Bavarians made a move for Chalobah before the transfer window closed, but Chelsea’s £50 million asking price forced them to abandon the move.
However, they are not completely out of the race. According to the report, Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has asked the club to bring Chalobah back in the January transfer window.
Chalobah had a priestly relationship with Tuchel at Chelsea. Tuchel was the man who gave Chalobah his first-team debut. Not only that, but he also helped him develop, playing him in 31 games.
There was also a specific strategy for the signing. “Paying £50 million for Chalobah is out of the question. Munich are looking at a loan as a viable option.”
