Holger Badstuber: is a loan the right move? http://www.bayerncentral.com/2017/01/holger-badstuber-loan-right-move/ http://www.bayerncentral.com/2017/01/holger-badstuber-loan-right-move/#respond Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:17:45 +0000 http://www.bayerncentral.com/?p=35566

It is highly unlikely that there is a single Bayern fan who does not love Holger Badstuber. Bayern announced recently that they plan on loaning the 27-year old centre-back in January. It could benefit everyone.

Bayern Munich have extended right-back Rafinha's contract until 2018. Even though some have criticised the move, it is the right call.
