Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are looking to rival Bayern Munich to sign out-of-contract Borussia Dortmund wingback Raphael Guerreiro.
This according to German reporter Florian Plettenberg, who reported on his Twitter account that Bayern are moving fast to try and sign the 29-year-old Potuguese international, but that Inter and Atletico are also keen to sign him on a free transfer.
Guerriero’s contract with Dortmund runs out at the end of this month.
With no contract extension agreed with the Schwarzgelben, the former Lorient man can start looking for a new club. He can leave Signal Iduna Park on a free transfer.
According to Plettenberg, German champions Bayern are very keen to sign Guerreiro.
The Bavarians pipped Dortrmund to the Bundesliga title on a dramatic final day of the season. Now, they are looking to sign away a key player from their domestic rivals.
According to Plettenberg, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel is a big fan of Guerreiro.
The former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss had actually been the coach who brought Guerreiro to Dortmund in the first place.
The Portuguese joined the Schwarzgelben from Lorient in the summer of 2016. That was the same summer that he’d won the Euros with his national team, starting in the final against France.
Inter Milan & Atletico Madrid Also Keen On Raphael Guerreiro
According to Plettenberg, however, Bayern are not the only team working to sign Guerreiro.
The German journalist reports that Inter and Atletico are also trying to sign the 29-year-old.
Inter currently have both Federico Dimarco and Robin Gosens playing on their left flank. However, Gosens in particular is persistently subject to rumours that he could be sold, particularly to the Bundesliga.
Inter could look to bring in a player from the German top flight to replace the former Atalanta man if he’s sold.
Guerreiro has made 27 appearances for Dortmund in the season just gone. In all competitions, he has played 36 times for the Schwarzgelben.
The Portuguese has made 224 total appearances for the club over the last seven seasons.
❗️Excl. News #Guerreiro: More talks with the player and his management took place in the last days. There are negotiations now. Understand a verbal agreement is close but not done yet.
