Center back Eric Dier (29), who is 99% close to moving to Bayern Munich, may be the luckiest person.
This is because he will be a player who works well with both Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (28, Munich).
Reporter Fabricio Romano, who is familiar with the transfer market, said on his social media account on the 11th (Korean time)
Dier signs a permanent contract with Munich. “Everything is finished.”
At the same time, “Tottenham will receive a fee of 4 million euros (about 5.7 billion won), and Dier will undergo a medical test on this day. “He is already in Munich.” 카지노사이트랭크
The previous day (10th), reporter Florian Plettenberg of ‘Sky Sports Germany’ also said
Munich failed to hijack Genoa’s center back Radu Dragusin (21).
He said, “Now Dier is the number one candidate for recruitment.” He
also announced, “The transfer fee is about 4 million euros, and the contract period is until 2025, with an option for a one-year extension.” On this day, there was another news about Dier. A video of his arrival in Munich was released.
Dier’s contract with Tottenham ends at the end of the 2023-2024 season.
Tottenham are planning to sell Dier and bring in a new centre-back in this January transfer window.
As a result, Dyer’s actions attracted attention.
Dier, 29, joined Tottenham in 2014 and has scored 13 goals and 12 assists in 364 games. However, it suffered from numerous criticisms. Because he had poor defense.
One can’t help but wonder where he will go as he is showing below-expected defensive skills to the point where he is considered an ‘automatic door’ at Tottenham.
Criticism of Dier reached its peak at the end of last year, and voices were raised everywhere calling for him to be disposed of in this winter transfer market.
Dier was connected to Munich, Kim Min-jae’s team.
Rumors of Dyer’s ‘shock’ in Munich began to emerge in November last year.
At the time, ‘Football Insider’ reported, “Munich is trying to recruit Dier, who can play both center back and defensive midfielder.
Dier had experience playing as a midfielder in his early professional career.
He explained, “Munich can sign Dier for a relatively cheap transfer fee. This is one of the reasons why he was placed on the signing list
In an interview with local media on the 11th, coach Tuchel said, “Dyer is a center back specialist,” and “we see him as a center back.”
He said, “Dyer can play not only on the right or left, but also as a three-back.
He also used to play as a defensive midfielder a few years ago,” he said.
He continued, “Things may go wrong at the end, but it is true that Munich approached to recruit Dier.
When he comes, we have one more defensive option,” he added.
There is a person who connected Dyer with Munich. This is Harry Kane (31, Munich)
who had a great time at Tottenham until last season.
This morning, British media ‘Team Talk’ reported, “(Daily) Agent Kane lured Dyer to come to Germany.”
“Once Dragusin’s contract, which is strongly linked to Tottenham, is finalized, Dier is scheduled to head to Munich.
Munich is ready to recruit Dier,” he said, adding, “Kane, who has been in constant contact with Dier, played a key role.”
Dier, who has played in Tottenham’s uniform since 2014, is close friends with Kane, a former member of Tottenham Youth.
He is also a teammate of the England national team.
Kane moved to Munich just before this season, but the two have remained in constant contact.
Along with ‘Team Talk’, ‘Football Insider’ also said, “Unpopular Tottenham star Dier could reunite with former teammate and Tottenham legend Kane,” and “Dier appears to have made up his mind on joining Munich, which Kane fully supports.
If Tottenham recruits a new defender (Dragusin), this transfer is likely to be completed as well.”
Instead, Son Heung-min says goodbye to Dier following Kane.
On the other hand, Dyer is expected to join forces with Kim Min-jae after sharing a meal with Son Heung-min of the Korean national soccer team.
He maintains a good relationship with Son Heung-min, who joined in 2015.
When Dier was relegated to a backup role and was forced to live alone, the player who was always by his side was Son Heung-min.
While playing together at Tottenham, Son Heung-min steadily rose to the top. On the other hand, Dyer went downhill.
Even though Dier showed disappointing defense, there were many times when Son Heung-min scored a goal and gave the team victory. For Dier, Son Heung-min is bound to be a dependable figure.
When Dier goes to Munich, he meets another ‘reliable’ Korean player.
It is Kim Min-jae, who made a remarkable contribution to leading Serie A Napoli to its first league title in 33 years last season.
It is highly likely that Dier will play the Munich game as a center back in place of Kim Min-jae
who was absent due to an Asian Cup call-up. Munich announces the start of the second half of the season with a Bundesliga match against Hoffenheim on the 13th.
If Korea reaches the Asian Cup finals, Kim Min-jae will not be able to play for his team for about a month.
When Kim Min-jae returns, Dyer, whose position overlaps, is likely to return to his position as a backup.
Initially, Munich brought Dier in thinking he would be Kim Min-jae’s backup.
Munich’s central defense this season consisted of only Kim Min-jae, Dayot Upamecano, and Matthijs Delicht
but by bringing in Dier at a low price, they had room for one more player.
If Munich has a good second half of the Bundesliga, they can pull off a comeback win.
Munich (38 points), which has played 15 games, is in second place after Leverkusen (42 points)
which has played one more game. There is ample time to move up to the lead.
Munich is challenging to become league champion for the 12th consecutive time.
Dier, who was lucky enough to work with both Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae, is in a position to win the trophy upon moving to Munich.
