In this winter transfer market, Bayern Munich has been on the lookout to bolster its defense, and while Nordi Mukiele (PSG) was initially considered, it appears destiny has different plans. The German club has opted to sign another French player.

While PSG has been active in incoming transfers with the acquisitions of Lucas Beraldo and Gabriel Moscardo (loaned to SC Corinthians until the end of the season), there have been no significant developments on the outgoing front with just six days left in the transfer window.

Nordi Mukiele, seeking more playing time, had expressed his interest in joining Bayern Munich, which was keen on reinforcing its defense. However, negotiations have hit a snag, especially regarding transfer details, prompting Bayern's decision-makers to shift their focus.

Despite prolonged talks with PSG, Bayern Munich has successfully reached an agreement with Galatasaray for right-back Sacha Boey. According to Fabrizio Romano, both clubs have verbally agreed on the transfer of the former Rennes player. Only final details need resolution before the 23-year-old player travels to Germany for medical examinations. Boey, who considers joining Bayern as "the opportunity of his life," has expressed his exclusive desire to join the German club.

This information has been confirmed by Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg, who provides additional details on the imminent transfer. Bayern will reportedly pay between 28 and 29 million euros for Sacha Boey's services, and he is expected to sign a contract with Rekordmeister until 2029.

With this move, it seems the Nordi Mukiele saga is coming to a close unless Bayern decides to further reinforce its defense following some issues in the last match.
