Reds star came close to Bayern move.
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has revealed that he nearly joined Bayern Munich instead of moving to Anfield this summer, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The talented 20-year-old has played for Bayern in the past, but left the club for first-team football at Bayer Leverkusen last season, though he was then offered a return to the Allianz Arena.
Can instead chose a new challenge in the Premier League after holding talks with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, rejecting the chance to go back to Bayern.
The Bavarian giants had been keen to offer him a place in their team next season, and asked him to stay with Leverkusen for just one more year, though he preferred a move to Liverpool.
