In addition to Marcel Sabitzer (27), is FC Bayern strengthening itself with other players in this transfer window? One trail leads to Texas. The Munich team are considering breaking defensive talent Justin Che (17) from their partner club FC Dallas with immediate effect. However, the Americans have not yet received an official offer.
Che, born in 2003, had already played on loan for the second team of FCB from February to June and recommended himself for higher tasks in eight third division games.
Bayern then wanted to sign the US international, who could be used as a center and right-back, and gradually integrate it into their professional team under new coach Julian Nagelsmann, but Dallas did not participate. The MLS representative, who has had a partnership with FC Bayern to promote talent since 2018, asked the Munich team to postpone the transfer until winter when the season in the USA ends due to some injured players.
According to information from SPOX and goal However, the record champions’ squad planners have contacted the Texans again in the past few days to check the prospects of an immediate transfer from Che. A final decision is still pending, but the tendency at the moment is still that the teenager will return to Munich in January at the earliest.
FC Bayern: To have Justin Che for two million euros
On the one hand, FC Dallas is still hoping for Che to stay. On the other hand, the Bayern bosses have not yet finally decided whether they would like to make an official offer for the player after contacting their partner club. The Texans, who are now better off in terms of personnel, would, according to information from SPOX and goal with an offer of the equivalent of two million euros.
However, for those responsible for FCB, the question still arises as to how beneficial an immediate transfer of the player’s development would be. Che, now able to play again after a calf injury that lasted almost four weeks, showed convincing performances as a right-back in his first seven premier league appearances for Dallas and was even voted into the MLS team of the week at the end of July.
With the FCB professionals, he would initially only be expected to play the role of supplementary player, especially since Josip Stanisic (21) is currently an unexpected and reliable alternative to regular right-back Benjamin Pavard (25). And for the reserve, which is now active in the regional league, the Bayern officials see Che too strong.
Justin Che wants to go back to Bayern – interest from England
The 17-year-old’s position is clear: he would agree to a return to the Isar at any time. “Justin went to Munich as a boy and came back as a man four months later,” says someone close to him SPOX and goal. “FC Bayern has a place in his heart.” There are even some personal items belonging to the player on campus. The FCB is his first option.
However, the record champions’ squad planners shouldn’t be too sure: four European clubs, including two from the English Premier League, have already contacted the Che side to convince the player of a change.
