If at first you don’t succeed…

Bayern Munich still want to make more signings after completing a deal for Eric Dier, with the Tottenham Hotspur defender signing a six-month deal with an option for another year. The Londoners got Radu Drăgușin from Genoa, someone whom Bayern tried to hijack. It looks as though the Bavarians have not learned their lesson as they now try to swoop in and steal Matija Popović who last played for Partizan’s U-19s:

Matija Popović (18/attacking midfielder) has been offered to FC Bayern by intermediaries. Popović was close to joining Milan but the case is now complicated as the intermediaries who offered him to Bayern are other than those who would have closed the agreement with Milan.

Juventus are also in the running and in pole position to swipe Popović from Milan, but maybe Bayern can take the idol…if they dare.
