Bayern Munich to pay 100 million euros for Pedri

Bayern Munich would reportedly have to pay around €100 million to secure the services of Barcelona prodigy Pedri in midfield.

According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, Bayern Munich know how much they have to pay to secure Pedri’s services. Barcelona will only be open to discussion of a transfer of the 18-year-old midfield prodigy if the Bundesliga champions are willing to pay 100 million euros to secure his services.

Pedri has taken no time to establish himself as a key figure for Barcelona, ​​week after week at a difficult time for the club. The Blaugrana did not have enough money to invest in a midfielder meaning the youngster was accelerated to a regular role last season. As a result, he played for club and country almost 70 times and became a prominent figure for the Spanish national team.

However, injury has forced Pedri sidelined this season, with the 18-year-old having led just four games so far. That said, the teenage prodigy has already done enough to turn several clubs across Europe into potential candidates, including Bayern Munich.

Pedri is not the only Barcelona midfielder associated with Bayern Munich. Frenkie de Jong and Gavi are also on the German giants’ radar, with Pedri the latest player to emerge as a prime target.

The interest in Pedri makes sense as Thomas Muller approaches the twilight of his storied career. The 18-year-old is thus a viable candidate to be a long-term successor to the German playmaker, with Bayern Munich keen to sign him in January or next summer.

According to recent reports, the Bundesliga champions are also preparing an offer to sign Pedri. And Bayern now know how much they will have to pay to secure the Spanish international’s services, with Barcelona demanding €100m to split.

While the Catalan giants would rather not part with Pedri, their difficult financial situation means that no first-team player is indispensable. The same is true for Pedri, according to the report, and it remains to be seen whether Bayern Munich decides to allocate €100m to chase him out of the Camp Nou.
