Barcelona ready to pounce as Bayern Munich open to Bryan Zaragoza loan

La Liga giants Barcelona have been put on alert, amid news that Bayern Munich are ready to part with Bryan Zaragoza this summer.

As much comes amid the Spaniard’s ongoing struggles to adapt in Munich.

Wide-man Zaragoza, for his part, secured a move to the Allianz Arena during the January transfer window, when the Bayern brass agreed to fork over an increased sum, to move his planned arrival forward by six months.

Safe to say, however, that the transfer has since not worked out as planned, for either party.

To date, the 22-year-old has been afforded just two Bundesliga appearances, for a grand total of 43 minutes.

And, as alluded to above, such woes could yet prove to be of benefit to one of the heavyweights of Spanish football.

As per a report from Diario Sport, citing Sky Germany, the Bayern brass have already come to the conclusion that Zaragoza is not yet ready to contribute for the club on a consistent basis.

He will, as a result, be sent out on loan this summer, with La Liga viewed as the preferred landing spot on the part of club and player alike.

And Barcelona, ‘who tried to tie him down for the month of June, are very attentive and could take a step if the loan conditions are favorable’.

The Blaugrana are on the lookout for reinforcements out wide with a view to the summer, with Zaragoza an attractive cut-price option.

It now remains to be seen whether the interest is mutual.
