Palhinha agreed personal terms with Bayern and underwent a medical in Germany on deadline day, but Fulham pulled the plug at the last minute after they failed to sign a replacement.
This leaves Bayern short in midfield after selling Ryan Gravenberch to Liverpool and the German giants plan to renew their interest in the Portuguese midfielder.
Fulham signed Manchester United’s Scott McTominay and Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg on deadline day and both players are expected to be available again in January.
Fulham manager Marco Silva does not want to lose Palhinha, who was signed for around £17million last summer, but the club are believed to be ready to let him go if a replacement is available.
Palhinha’s agent, his brother Goncalo, said: “You [Fulham] “They didn’t destroy the dream, they just postponed it.”
