Now it suddenly happened very quickly!
Bayern star Ryan Gravenberch (21) will switch to Liverpool. The Munich and the Klopp club agreed according to the same sources (Sky, The Athletic and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano) on a change.
And Liverpool can cost the midfield man a lot! There is a transfer fee of 40 million euros plus five million bonus payments.
Klopp brings Bayern star Gravenberch
Gravenberch had already stopped training with the German record champions on Thursday and wanted to change.
Reds coach Jürgen Klopp (56) has long been a fan of the player and has convinced Gravenberch that he fits perfectly into Liverpool’s game system. And the midfielder definitely wants to change to get more match practice in the future.
Gravenberch only came to Munich from Amsterdam for a fixed fee of EUR 18.5 million last summer. Bayern probably did not have to transfer the full amount of the agreed six million euros in possible bonus payments to Ajax.
In addition, coach Thomas Tuchel (50) sees him more as an offensive six or as a ten, where Bayern have an oversupply of players.
But: Bayern actually only wanted to let Gravenberch go if they got a replacement by the end of the transfer window on Friday at 6 p.m.!
Fulham’s João Palhinha (28/ BILD reported exclusively) is currently the hottest candidate. The record champion is said to have already submitted an offer of around 60 million euros plus bonuses, while Fulham had a price of up to 80 million euros in mind. In the meantime, the English are said to be satisfied with 70 million euros. But: There is no agreement so far and Fulham is missing a replacement.
