Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, and Bayern Munich are involved in a bit of a three-way dance at the moment as PSG is pursuing both Filipe Luis of Atleti and Juan Bernat of Bayern.

In Sunday’s Daily Schmankerl, Spanish outlet AS indicated that Bernat would possibly head to Atletico Madrid if Luis accepted an offer to move to PSG. Now, however, Spanish radio station SER’s Pedro Fullana is reporting that PSG may now go straight to Bernat and has an agreement in place for €14M + €3M in additional costs to acquire the reserve left back. It is not clear, however, if the additional €3M would be incentive-based clauses or another fee. PSG has already an agreement with Bayern (14 + 3 million) to sign Juan Bernat, with whom he was negotiating when they received the yes of Filipe Luis. The two options are open but the Filipe fits more with PSG @ttps://

BFW Analysis

Bernat has long been rumored to be on his way out of Bavaria due to a lack of consistent field time. With David Alaba close to returning from injury and Rafinha considered the primary substitute at both outside back positions, Bernat is clearly not going to break into Bayern’s lineup any time soon.

Moving on would be the best move for Bernat, but in this scenario with Atletico Madrid and PSG, Bernat is being used as a bit of a bargaining chip and could land wherever Atletico Madrid’s Luis does not. Atletico seemingly wants to retain Luis as a back-up to Lucas Hernandez, but PSG may be able to offer the Brazilian more playing time.

Regardless, once PSG and Atletico Madrid end their dance over Luis, Bernat and Bayern should have a more clear idea of where the Spaniard can move on with his career.
