Update — January 31st, 8:01PM EST: Bayern and Granada agree on a fee and book Zaragoza’s flight to Munich.

We’re almost there, lads. Bayern and Granada have reached an agreement that would let Zaragoza move right now. The fee is said to be €4-5 million and the flight from Spain to Germany has been booked. Hang on...


Update — January 31st, 4:45PM EST: Still a difference of €3 million, but incentives could make it up

Bayern Munich is looking to get creative with how to get Brian Zaragoza to Bavaria per Tz (as captured by @iMiaSanMia):

The difference between Bayern’s offer (€3m) and Granada’s demands (€6m) for Bryan Zaragoza could be reduced with additional performance related add-ons. Within the Spanish club, it is said that when a deserving player is determined to leave, there would be a solution that fits all parties [@kessler_philipp @hannalein3]


Update — January 31st, 3:30PM EST: Granada not budging with Bayern Munich on Zaragoza

Granada still has not relented on letting Bryan Zaragoza leave for Bayern Munich before the transfer deadline ends tomorrow:

Things could change, but time is ticking.


Update — January 31st, 7:10AM EST: Zaragoza pushing for move

According to Fabrizio Romano, Granada’s Bryan Zaragoza wants to make the move to Bayern Munich right now...and not wait until summer:


Update — January 31st, 6:40AM EST: Granada wants €6 million for Zaragoza

Well...leave it to Granada to start playing hardball with Bayern Munich — at least per Ideal journalist Rafael Lamelas (as captured by @iMiaSanMia):

Granada are demanding more than €6m to let Bryan Zaragoza join Bayern immediately. The German club is offering €3m as things stand.


Update — January 30th, 8:18PM EST: Granada loan in Facundo Pellistri from Manchester United; Zaragoza moving is a serious topic now

It looks like Granada are serious about letting Zaragoza move to Bayern now as Facundo Pellistri has been brought in on loan from Manchester United. Hopefully a Palhinha situation WILL NOT happen under any circumstances.


Update — January 30th, 7:35PM EST: Bayern makes strong move

Bayern Munich seems really eager to bring in Granada’s Bryan Zaragoza right now. In fact, the Bavarians have offered to pony up another €3 million to get Zaragoza before this transfer window closes per Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg:

Update #Zaragoza: At this stage there’s still no agreement in terms of the transfer fee. Negotiations between FC Bayern and Granada will continue on Wednesday!

⚠️ Bayern, willing to spend an additional transfer fee of around €3m at the moment! Granada want more …

As reported: Zaragoza is ready to join Bayern now. Personal terms are not an issue. He’s waiting for the light.



Update — January 30th, 11:41AM EST: Zaragoza agrees to deal; Granada request bid from Bayern

Not long after the initial report was published, Zaragoza agreed to make the move now. However, Granada request a formal bid from Bayern as Zaragoza’s existing Bayern contract begins July 2024. The clubs are now working around this to get a deal done.


A couple of months ago, Bayern Munich announced that they had signed Bryan Zaragoza from Granada CF and that he will join the Bavarians in the summer. But with Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry both on the mend, Bayern virtually have no wingers left; Thomas Tuchel seems to forget that Jamal Musiala and Mathys Tel are there. Bayern then had this crazy idea of hauling Zaragoza to Munich right now, and it might just happen:

Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund watched Zaragoza live in their 2-0 defeat to Getafe, with the player playing the entire match. While it may seem crazy that something like this will happen, it still boggles the mind how Tuchel cannot play other players on the wing. Zaragoza is a promising player and bringing him here now will give Bayern the edge, this wouldn’t have been a necessity if Musiala and/or Tel is played on the wing.
