In an appearance with Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg on the Meine Bayern Woche podcast, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano discussed two moves that Bayern Munich did not make during the summer transfer window and detailed why those acquisitions did not happen.
“Saúl Ñíguez was an idea for Bayern in June. They spoke to his agents, but a deal was never close because he wanted to go to the Premier League,” Romano said (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).
Saul, of course, ultimately signed with Chelsea FC.
As for another Bayern Munich target, midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, the Bavarians never really had chance with the former Stade Rennais phenom.
“Bayern always had interest in Camavinga, but this summer it was impossible, as they were not prepared to pay the money. Real Madrid were planning for months and moved fast in the last days. It was impossible for Bayern,” said Romano (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).
