Raphaël Guerreiro is expected in Munich next week to undergo his medical and sign his contract. The club is planning with Guerreiro as competition for Alphonso Davies at left-back as well as an option in midfield. Tuchel attaches big importance to flexibility.
The two parties have now clarified the final contractual details and agent’s fees. Official announcement is a matter of time. Guerreiro will travel to Munich after the upcoming Portugal games against Bosnia and Iceland to undergo his medical and sign his contract.
Thomas Tuchel would have liked to continue working with João Cancelo on the long-term, but due to the expensive price, the club moved quickly for Guerreiro after the end of the season. It only took a few conversations to convince him to join.
Guerreiro was also being courted by Atlético Madrid but preferred to stay in Germany. As for Cancelo, his destination could now be Spain, with Barcelona keen on the player and in good contact with his management.
