Report: Thilo Kehrer to Bayern Munich denied by leading German journalists

Hopefully the German journos are right, because signing Kehrer would be the wrong move.

The possibility of Thilo Kehrer joining Bayern Munich has left fans of the Bavarian superclub horrified and disheartened. While the supporters want to see the likes of Marcel Sabitzer and Amine Adli finalized in the upcoming days, French outlet L’Equipe reported with some confidence that the Bayern bosses were negotiating with Paris Saint-Germain for the transfer of the 24-year-old.

Now, multiple journalists in Germany have refuted that report, claiming that there are no negotiations for Kehrer and no deal has been reached with his representatives:

If true, these reports come as a relief to Bayern fans. While the club definitely needs a new right-back, Kehrer isn’t our man. His career highlights include being humilated by Kingsley Coman at Schalke, and being humiliated by Kingsley Coman in the Champions League final. Unless we’re buying him to give Coman more motivation in training, he’s not someone Bayern should be after.

Of course, French journos love to ruin our mood, so here’s one who’s sticking to his guns re: Kehrer.

Info: - No agreement yet between Thilo Kehrer and #Bayern

- His agents have been working behind the scenes for weeks to prepare a compelling offer for the player and the #PSG

- an emissary of #Bayern was present during #PSG-#RCSA

Let’s hope this is all a bunch of noise, and the Kehrer links are just a way for the player’s entourage to angle for a new contract at PSG. He’s not needed at Bayern, and we hope he stays away.
