Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha has once again spoken out about Bayern Munich's interest in him.

Joao Palhinha came close to joining Bayern Munich in the summer, traveling all the way to Germany only to see the move fall through on deadline day.

With Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund recently confirming that Palhinha is still on the club's radar, the Fulham midfielder was asked about the German giants' interest in him at a press conference on Monday.

"I don't know what will happen in the future. Obviously it affected me and my family a lot, but it's water under the bridge. I don't want to remember that. You know what happened. It's is a source of pride. In my life, everything that happened has been for a reason and I like to think that the future will tell me if what happened was also for a reason," Palhinha told reporters (via @iMiaSanMia).

"I want to continue following my path, everything I've achieved was because of my worth and my work. Nobody has given me anything. I'm 28 years old, but I know I can still reach higher - I'm facing the future with this ambition."

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder is contracted to Fulham until 2028.
