As the winter transfer window approaches its final two weeks, PSG finds itself in a race against time to bolster its squad. However, the spotlight on the Parisian outfit is currently fixated on the situation surrounding Nordi Mukiele.
The French international, seeking more playing time after recovering from injury (having played 7 games in 484 minutes), harbors the desire to join Bayern Munich this winter. Former PSG coach Thomas Tuchel deems Mukiele a priority for fortifying his defense, yet as of now, there have been no significant breakthroughs in negotiations.
In an interview with Sport1, Bayern Munich's coach Thomas Tuchel was questioned about his team's transfer market activities and the potential arrival of Nordi Mukiele. Tuchel commented on the presence of Christoph Freund, Bayern's sporting director, at the training center: "Christoph didn't have any player with him. This is unacceptable under normal circumstances, but we'll give him the benefit of the doubt once again."
Regarding Mukiele, Tuchel stated, "If something has to happen, whatever the deal is, it helps a lot not to talk about it beforehand. Otherwise, we upset all parties involved, which we obviously don't want. I trust what we are doing, and I have great confidence in Christoph. We know what we want. We're trying to make things happen."
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old Mukiele, contracted with PSG until 2027, appears willing to make the move to Bavaria due to his limited playing time under the management of Luis Enrique. PSG must swiftly conclude this matter and find a replacement for the upcoming crucial fixtures. The clock is ticking, and the resolution of Nordi Mukiele's potential transfer remains a pivotal storyline in the winter transfer market.
