Palinha ‘shock transfer off’, replacement is Man Utd MF, not Hojbjerg

Scott McTominay (27-Manchester United), not Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (28-Tottenham), is the likely replacement for João Palinha (28-Fulham) after his transfer fell through.

“The leading candidate to replace João Palinha, whose move to Bayern Munich fell through, was not Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg but Scott McTominay,” German outlet Sport1 quoted Fulham insider Nizar Kinsella as saying on Saturday. 카지노사이트

Palinha had a terrible summer transfer deadline day. Munich wanted him, the clubs agreed, and Palinha headed to Munich. Fulham insiders didn’t block the move because Palin wanted to go to Munich so badly.

But there was a catch. By deadline day, Fulham hadn’t found a replacement for Palinha. Initially, Joivier, who had fallen out of favor at Tottenham, was the leading candidate to replace him, but the deal fell through and Fulham, unable to find a replacement, did not agree to the transfer. So Palinha was forced to rejoin Fulham, with his move to Munich falling through.

However, Palinha’s replacement was McTominay, not Hojbjerg. McTominay had been labeled a free agent by Manchester United but turned down a move to Fulham. “Fulham couldn’t let Palinha go after the McTominay deal fell through,” Kinsella said.

Fulham manager Marco Silva could also have left the club over the Palinha saga. “Silva has a contract with Fulham until 2024,” Kinsella said. However, he appeared to be unhappy with his inability to take the team to a higher level in terms of transfers. Palinha was the most important player in the team’s project and he would have been very disappointed with his sale, even if a replacement was brought in.”

Despite a failed transfer this summer, Palinha still wants to join Munich. Munich are also keeping their options open for Palinha. Kinsella added: “Fulham will be inevitable if both sides want to move. If that happens, then the attention will turn to Joivier and McTominay again,” Kinsella said.
