FCB, rumor: Bayern probably interested in Barca talent
FC Bayern Munich has apparently kept an eye on the 16-year-old defender talent Iker Cordoba from FC Barcelona. According to information from sports1 The German record champions have been observing Cordoba for some time and have been in contact with their advisors for a few weeks.
The Spaniard’s contract runs until June 30, so Bayern are probably speculating on a free transfer. Although there should be another meeting between Barca and the player in the next few weeks to explore a possible contract extension, it is not unlikely that the negotiations will fail.
According to the report, Cordoba himself should feel flattered by the interest of Munich. He also has concerns as to whether the Catalans can offer him a sufficiently attractive sporting future.
The 16-year-old would initially be a perspective player for Bayern’s U19s, who, after a historically poor season under coach Danny Galm (only ninth place in the Junior Bundesliga South/Southwest), urgently need defensive support.
