When the summer transfer window closed, Fulham’s João Palhinha was undoubtedly one of the most disappointed players in the Premier League. The Portuguese international had his heart set on a move to Bayern Munich. He had even flown to Germany to undergo a medical in anticipation of the transfer. But when Fulham couldn’t bring in a defensive midfielder to replace Palhinha, the move to Bayern fell apart. However, it appears that both Fulham and Palhinha are committed to trying again when the January transfer window opens.
However, it appears that both Fulham and Palhinha are committed to trying again when the January transfer window opens. While waiting for the next opportunity, fans and pundits can turn to the FanDuel sportsbook for valuable insights and up-to-date odds on Palhinha’s potential transfer and other exciting football events. FanDuel’s platform offers a wealth of information to keep football enthusiasts informed and engaged during the transfer season frenzy.
“I can’t lie, in football, we all have dreams, and those are to play in the Champions League and for the best clubs in the world,” explains Palhinha. “People need to see and understand that.”
To complicate matters further, two weeks after the window closed, Palhinha signed a new contract with Fulham to keep him in London through at least the 2027-28 season. That contract was agreed to a little more than a year after Palhinha’s initial five-year contract to join Fulham. It also doesn’t come with a release clause. Based on that, it would appear that Palhinha is happy staying with Fulham and is committed to the Premier League club.
However, there are still strong indicators that Palhinha’s move to Bayern will still happen. Munich’s manager Thomas Tuchel has complained about his side’s lack of depth in midfield while Palhinha’s agent has called the transfer “postponed” rather than canceled.
Obviously, a lot can change between now and January. But even though Palhinha is saying all of the right things and seems committed to Fulham, all signs point to him being a Bayern Munich player by the end of January.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
