Martín Zubimendi's future may take an unexpected turn in the winter market. According to 'BILD', Bayern Munich is willing to pay the termination clause of the San Sebastian native, one of Xavi Hernández's preferred players
The directive of the Bayern Munich seems decided to do several important movements in the wintry market. As it advances the newspaper 'BILD', one of the signings that contemplates the Bavarian group is the one of Martín Zubimendi, as long as the mediocentro Spanish of the 'ok' to his traspaso. The donostiarra renewed this year with the Real Sociedad until 2027, but the value of his clause kept in 60 million euros.
In this sense, the Bayern can give a hit to the Barça with one of the footballers that, because of the financial crisis, have resisted him to the Barcelona directive. Xavi Hernández sees in Zubimendi to the ideal pivote for his diagram, but the posture inflexible of the Real regarding his price have closed any door, something similar to what occurred in his moment with Bernardo Silva.
The Bayern wants to armour his defence in January
In accordance with the information of 'BILD', the aim of the Bayern is to armour the defensive zone in the wintry market, understanding that the team follows giving a lot of eases backwards. Tomas Tuchel wants to reinforce the zone of recovery with a double pivote conformed by Zubimendi and Joshua Kimmich, another of the players that sounded like possible relief of Sergio Busquets in the Barça.
The another priority is to go to by a central. In the last days trascended the Bavarian interest in Ronald Araújo, a rumour that took little in cooling because of the refusal so much of the Barça as of the player to listen offers by his traspaso. The 'charrúa' has agreement until 2026 and already has premièred the captaincy culé in front of the absence of Ter Stegen, ratifying his leadership in the field and in the Barcelona changing room.
Zubimendi Will have other offers on the table
In addition to the Bayern, clubs like the Arsenal also has asked after the donostiarra, without success up to now. Unlike the 'gunners', in Munich if they are had to credit the 60 'kilos' of his clause, by which the decision final will remain in hands of the mediocentro. This season, the player of 24 years has kept the good level showed in the 2022/23, adding a so much and a pair of assistances in 21 parties with the ones of Imanol Bailiff.
