Bayern Munich favourite for £40m Norwich City youngster

Max Aarons has the green light to leave Norwich City this summer and there is a growing chance he makes a move to Bayern Munich.

Barcelona tried to sign him last year but Bayern are continuing to monitor him ahead of the next window. Norwich have accepted that Aarons will move on in order to fulfil his huge potential in the game, and the club have a policy of not standing in the way of any exceptional talent making a transfer when the right time – and fee – comes along.

That time is coming as Aarons, 21, is widely regarded as one of the best young full-backs in the game and it is expected that Bayern will lead the race for him – despite interest from clubs in England. The player is believed to be very open to the potential of moving abroad and will now wait to see if a spot opens up for him.

Benjamin Pavard is currently Bayern’s first-choice right-back and the club are keen for fresh competition in the area, particularly as Joshua Kimmich is now transitioning to a full-time central midfielder and Bouna Sarr, who is Pavard’s understudy, has been disappointing and is very likely to be moved on.

During his time at Norwich, Aarons has racked up over 7,000 minutes of league action – more than other top English players in his position had managed by the same stage of their career, including Kyle Walker, Reece James, Kieran Trippier, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Barcelona’s summer offer for Aarons never led to serious progress as their proposal came at the wrong time, but this summer Bayern could move for him at exactly the right time. It is expected to take an offer upwards of £40 million to sign him.
