The January transfer window is in full swing and Bayern Munich is pushing to get their business done as soon as possible. While the window does remain open until the end of the month, Thomas Tuchel does have a preference to trying to get the club’s business done before they take the training trip to Portugal from the 14th to the 18th.
For the better part of the past week and a half, Paris Saint-Germain defender Nordi Mukiele has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern and Tuchel is pushing to get him as soon as possible. He signed for the reigning Ligue 1 champions from RB Leipzig on a five-year deal after he had gone to the Bundesliga club from Montpellier back in 2018. Tuchel is very much a fan of his versatility to play both right back and center back, which is exactly the type of player Tuchel is currently looking for.
Per an update from Sky Sport’s Florian Plettenberg, Bayern is currently in negotiations with Mukiele, his representatives, and PSG for a loan deal with an option to buy at the end of said loan. It is also reported that the player himself has already agreed upon personal terms and that the move is now just a matter of the two clubs agreeing on fees and contractual stipulations.
At this point, Mukiele is just waiting for the total agreement between Bayern and PSG and it does not appear that there are too many roadblocks standing in the way of the player coming to Bayern on loan for the remainder of the season. Whether or not Bayern would pursue a permanent deal for him is still up in the air, but that is also the case for Eric Dier from Tottenham. Both could wind up being a slight surplus to requirements once Tuchel has his full squad back fit and healthy.
