Was FC Bayern planning a transfer theft by private jet?

The right-back position has been a problem area at FC Bayern for a long time. A recent, totally crazy rumor that the record champions wanted to fly a talented player for defense on Deadline Day by private jet to sign is probably just a myth.

Many faces have already been seen in the right-back position at FC Bayern this season. Since Bouna Sarr has only been a follower since his commitment the summer before last and Josip Stanisic does not yet enjoy Julian Nagelsmann’s full trust, Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich have had to help out as full-backs.

A real backup for regular player Benjamin Pavard is still missing in the squad. Against this background, it seemed quite conceivable that Munich would add more personnel to the right-back in January.

Was FC Bayern planning a transfer coup?

According to the Dutch portal “Voetbal International”, the record champions even made a desperate attempt on the last day of the transfer window to lure the Dutch defensive talent Denso Kasius to the Isar. Problem: The 19-year-old FC Utrecht full-back was on the verge of a move to Serie A FC Bologna on Deadline Day.

FC Bayern apparently wanted to intervene at the last second and even offered to fly Kasius by private jet from Bologna to Munich in order to arrange a transfer before the end of the transfer window.

However, the “Bild” reporters Christian Falk and Tobias Altschäffl revealed in the “Bayern Insider” podcast that the narrative of the Dutch portal does not correspond to the truth. FC Bayern was certainly interested in the services of the defensive player. However, the journalists denied the story about the private jet operation.

Kasius ultimately signed a contract in Bologna until 2026. The Italians allegedly let the right foot cost around three million euros.
