One of Bayern Munich’s objectives in the current January transfer market was to reinforce the right back. In recent days, the favorite was Kieran Tripipier, but Newcastle, adamant, refused to sell him. PSG’s versatile defender, Nordi Mukiele, also sounded, but the operation fell through. Finally arrived Sacha Boeyright side of the Galatasaray Delaware 23 yearswhich has perfect conditions to shine in the elite.
Bayern’s bet is not exactly small. They spent 30 million euros to sign the French defender until June 30, 2028So the main intention is for him to be important from day one and to be able to guard Allianz’s right flank for the next decade.
Of Cameroonian descent, the footballer born in Montreuil, France, He has been one of the great full-backs who burst into Europe with force. A product of the quarry of the Rennes Stadium, which he arrived at when he was 14 years old (2014). After making his debut with the first team in 2019, where he made 12 appearances, he was loaned to Dijon, accumulating another 24 appearances in French football that took him directly to Turkey in the summer of 2021, in exchange for almost 6 million euros.
The challenge was not easy. He signed for Galatasaray, one of the country’s historic teams, where he had to deal with the pressure of being required to win titles and coexist with one of the most passionate fans on the planet.. But there he matured, gaining experience in European competitions and adding 83 games under his belt, in which he scored 4 goals and distributed 4 assists.
WHAT WILL BOEY CONTRIBUTE TO BAYERN?
boey is a real nuisance for any attacker. Fast, forceful and strong, he stands out for being a great marker. He endures the 90 minutes at a surprising intensity, fighting for each ball to the fullest. A born winner of duels. Either with entries or looking for melee. In a team that presses very high like Bayern, anticipation will be important and one of the keys to recovering meters back when the rival manages to punish the defense’s back.
Despite not being too tall (1.78 meters tall), he is a robust footballer, with an imposing physique.. Over time, he has also added more to the attack. He is quite clean with the ball, and although he does not stand out for being excellent with it, he always has the intention of progressing and punishing the rival, something very important for a team with the idea that Bayern inspires, of constantly dominating the rival.
With Boey in the field, work and effort are not negotiable. A tough profile, with a lot of skill despite being 23 years old, and who is capable of drying up any attacker, both in terms of physicality and defensive quality.
Obviously, the jump is enormous. You will have to adapt to a new league and the demands of one of the most important clubs on the planet. 30 million is not exactly a low figure, but the trust placed in him is quite high. Due to conditions, he is prepared to do a good job under Tuchel’s orders.. Will he be able to be a protagonist at Bayern?
