After a number of reports surfaced during the past summer indicating growing interest from several European clubs in Maccabi Tel Aviv's goalkeeper, Daniel Peretz, last night (Wednesday), it was reported in the German media that the German empire, Bayern Munich, has also begun to express interest in the talented Israeli goalkeeper.
According to reports, Bayern Munich has decided not to bring in an experienced goalkeeper to replace Manuel Neuer, who is still recovering from an injury. Following the departure of Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer to Inter, the Germans are interested in signing a goalkeeper with potential who can compete for the position of the first-choice goalkeeper alongside Sven Ulreich, who was the team's second-choice goalkeeper until this year.
Neuer, who was seriously injured in a skiing accident last October, is expected to recover by November and resume wearing the jersey of Germany's champion. As a result, Bayern Munich is not interested in bringing in a high-profile goalkeeper. Following Daniel Peretz's impressive performance in the U21 European Championship, his name has entered Bayern's lists, and it is possible that in the coming weeks, they will make a financial offer to Maccabi Tel Aviv. It's worth noting that Peretz doesn't have a release clause in his contract, but Maccabi Tel Aviv is unlikely to stand in his way. If an offer arrives, negotiations are expected to commence.
It's worth mentioning that last summer, there were numerous reports of interest in Peretz from other European teams, including Marseille from France, Feyenoord from the Netherlands, and Union Berlin from Germany.
Good performances in the Conference League and a huge tournament with the young team
Daniel Peretz, aged 23, is considered the future goalkeeper of Israeli football. Two years ago, he already took on the role of the first-choice goalkeeper for Maccabi Tel Aviv. This season, Peretz has made significant progress and is regarded as one of the top goalkeepers in the league. Additionally, he has showcased impressive performances in the Europa League qualifiers, attracting scouts from around the world to include him in their records.
If that wasn't enough, at the end of the regular league season, Peretz joined the youth national team for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship. There, he also had an excellent tournament, including saving two penalties against the strong German team, which made a historic advancement to the semifinals, securing participation in the Olympics. He showcased impressive goalkeeping performances against players from the top ranks of the world.
