Bayern Munich enter race for Radu Dragusin


Tuttomercatoweb report that Bayern Munich have overtaken everyone in the race to sign Radu Dragusin, and are close to a deal. The Romanian centre-back has been the subject of sustained interest from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur since the start of the January transfer window, but a deal has yet to be agreed.

TMW report that after Atalanta’s first offer of €18 million plus 2 million in bonuses, Tottenham and Napoli tried to reach an agreement with the Ligurians, who have always demanded a total valuation of €30 million euros between the fixed fee and bonuses.

The Bavarians have arrived at this figure: the offer is €24 million, plus six million in bonuses based on the player’s appearances with the Bayern jersey and eventual qualification for the Champions League, practically assured year after year. So, in effect, Genoa will get €30 million from the sale of Dragusin.

Bayern Munich had practically closed a deal for Tottenham’s Eric Dier, but then turned to Dragusin, ahead of everyone. There is still nothing signed between the parties but it is possible that the  ‘white smoke’ will arrive in the next few hours. Spurs themselves, however, could launch another bid  in the coming hours, while Napoli are behind and are unlikely to get back into the race.

There is already a verbal agreement between the player and the Bavarian club. A contract of four and a half years, with a salary of around €2 million per year and rising.
