Subtle tweet hints at Budesliga’s Bayern Munich interest in Seattle Sounder Deandre Yedlin
Take it for what it is worth , but yesterday morning a tweet went out from EuroSport.com suggesting Bayern Munich of Germany’s Bundesliga was joining the list of teams interested in Deandre Yedlin

While there was NO actual link to an article discussing the supposed interest, there could be a back channel connection with Jurgen Klinsmann’s connections to the league. The USMNT poached current Bayern player Julian Green to play in the World Cup. Yedlin and Green quickly bonded in camp, and spent much of their World Cup travels together.
Moving to the Bundesliga makes little sense for Yedlin, who would likely have to play in a lower division, like Green, for a period of time. If he was to make the top-tier for Bayern out of camp, he would likely be relegated to little or no playing time, which could have a negative impact on his long-term development.
If Bayern Munich were to make a serious run at Deandre Yedlin, expect him to stay be loaned back to his current team, the Seattle Sounders for a year, before making the final jump overseas.
