Fulham open to lowering Palhinha price amid Bayern interest

Having failed to sign Joao Palhinha from Fulham towards the end of the summer transfer window, Bayern Munich are reportedly still interested in the services of the Portugal international. It seems their pursuit has been given a boost, with Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg claiming Fulham are open to allowing Palhinha to leave for significantly less than their demand from a few months ago, which is believed to have stood at more than €60 million.

When his move to the Bundesliga champions fell through, Palhinha insisted he remained focused on Fulham for the 2023/24 season. He was left out of the squad for his team’s 5-1 defeat to Manchester City in early September, and having already missed the first-round win away to Everton, he came off the bench as a second-half substitute the following week against Brentford. In all the other Premier League games Fulham have played so far, manager Marco Silva named him in the starting XI, taking him off the pitch just once.

It has been said Liverpool are considering fighting Bayern for Palhinha should he be allowed to leave Craven Cottage, though the credibility of those rumours is somewhat questionable at this point.
