Transfer Talk: Palhinha's Bayern Munich move is imminent

Posted Thursday, July 11, 2024 by ESPN

Bayern Munich are set to sign Fulham defensive midfielder Joao Palhinha, according to Sky Sports Deutschland's Kerry Hau.

The deal was reported to have been delayed as final formalities were resolved, but the latest indicates that the 29-year-old has now "received the green light" to complete his move to the Allianz Arena.

The Portugal international has agreed to sign a four-year deal that secures him until the summer of 2028, though the Bundesliga club will have the option to activate a clause to extend his stay by a further year. The contract is believed to be signed digitally by Palhinha, finally completing a move that fell through on Deadline Day last summer.

Sources previously told ESPN that a deal worth €56 million had been agreed between both clubs for the midfielder, who made 39 appearances across all competitions for the Cottagers last season.
