Two days ago, globoesporte broke the news that Breno wants to join a Brazilian club (apparently either Internacional or Sao Paulo, read more HERE). Today he tweeted the following:
“I’ve just received the news, and am sharing with you now, that Bayern won’t let me go.”
This confirms that he wants to leave the club, that he asked for a transfer but the club won’t let him go. Whether it’s because they wanna give him one last chance or the offers simply weren’t good enough can only be speculated at the moment.
Personally, I think it’s a bit of both. The offers probably weren’t good enough to make a deal interesting so it was decided that the upcoming is either his breakthrough or last season in Munich. Was it a smart move? We’ll know in a year but there’s always the risk of Breno becoming terribly unmotivated, he wouldn’t be the first person who, after having a transfer request rejected, turns into a locker room cancer. As I just said, we’ll see…
