Bayern reached an agreement with Reading, from the English second division, to negotiate free of charge with 23-year-old left-back Omar Richards. According to the website “The Athletic”, the player will sign a four-season contract with the German club, during the next transfer window, in the middle of the year.
He has even undergone medical examinations organized by Bayern, but they were done in the UK due to travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. The German club’s interest in him had already been reported by “The Athletic” in January this year. His contract with Reading is valid until the end of this season.
If the deal is made and the left-back remains at Bayern Munich (that is to say, he is not a manager or resold), he should be the second reinforcement of the German team for the next season. The Bavarian giant had already announced in mid-February the hiring of defender Dayot Upamecano, of RB Leipzig.
