Who is Sacha Boey reportedly joining Bayern Munich?

Bayern Munich, known for their football dominance on domestic and international levels, has qualified for the Champions League knockouts this season, topping their group unsurprisingly. Despite a strong start, they have appeared a bit shaky at the back in the Bundesliga and are currently 2nd in the league table.

They are four points behind Bayer Leverkusen, whose manager might be linked to a move to Liverpool management. Consequently, the club management has been searching for defensive signings in this winter window and might have finally found a young player who suits their profile.

Who is Sacha Boey?

French right-back Sacha Boey is a player playing for Turkish side Galatasaray and has been a rising star for them since his signing from Stade de Rennes in the season 2021-22. Despite the arrival of a talented right-back in Hakim Jiyech this season, the youngster has still been a prominent figure in the starting 11 for the Turkish side.

According to Transfermarkt, Boey is a pacy dribbler who has a tendency to attack and doesn’t leave any stone unturned in defense as well. He is known to be physical in tackles and puts his body on the line to win the ball back. Such an aggressive and technical defender will suit the Bayern Munich side as they have been lacking a bit of both in the defensive area which also forced them to target Barcelona’s center-back Ronald Araujo a few weeks back.

The Frenchman is currently the most valuable player in the Turkish league and is already being compared to the Liverpool attacking right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold. He is third with 189 duels and sixth among defenders with 57.45% successful dribbles in the Turkish league.

Sacha Boey reportedly joining Bayern Munich?

Recent reports have confirmed that Sacha Boey has reached a verbal agreement with the German side Bayern Munich to sign for them in this winter window. Renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted his trademark “here we go!” indicating that Bayern, currently facing an injury crisis, has agreed on terms with Galatasaray.

Only final player details and minor paperwork remain, with completion expected in the following weeks, as Boey’s medical has already been scheduled. It is deemed a significant effort from the player’s side as he expressed a desire for Bayern, considering it an “opportunity of a lifetime.”

This news comes after the recent Champions League group stage matches between Bayern and Galatasaray in which the French right-back reportedly impressed the former Chelsea and current Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel. The right-back’s performance was especially good in the Champions League this season.

The youngster’s career is on the rise and it could be a really big move for the 23-year-old right-back with a European breakthrough maybe just around the corner. It would be interesting to see how far can the youngster go and if he can match the potential of Trent whom he has already been compared with. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
