Not long ago, Joao Palhinha signed a new long-term contract with Fulham, but according to The Sun, he is still facing the door of leaving London. Specifically, Bayern Munich is expected to return to the Palhinha deal in the January transfer window, and at the same time they are also targeting Scott McTominay as a backup for the Portuguese star.
The above source said:
“Scott McTominay is Bayern Munich’s backup plan if they don’t sign Joao Palhinha in the January transfer window.”
“Palhinha extended his contract with Fulham last week, after a transfer to Bayern Munich last summer collapsed at the last minute.”
“The 28-year-old passed Bayern’s medical and was due to sign on transfer deadline day, but Fulham abandoned the deal because they were unable to find a suitable replacement.”
“That’s partly because McTominay didn’t really want to move to Craven Cottage, and Bayern are now looking at the midfielder who has made 40 appearances and scored six goals for Scotland.”
