Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has stated that the Bavarian club has opened talks with Serge Gnabry over a new contract.
The Bayern winger’s contract expires in the summer of 2023 and the German club had to sell him this summer or risk losing the 26-year-old for free when his contract expired.
Talking to Sports 1“We are in talks,” Khan said. Serge knows what we ask of him as a club, also in terms of performance.
“It is in a thought process. As soon as things become clearer, we will announce it.”
Gnabry has been linked to Liverpool by GoalAs an option for a right wing position, if Mohamed Salah decides to leave the club but now that appears to be over, unless the Reds can convince the German otherwise.
Although talks have begun, this does not necessarily mean that the 26-year-old will sign, but the problem for all parties involved is that if Bayern want him to stay, he will stay.
GOAL stated that the Germany international wants to make sure he is making the right decision as to how he will continue his career, with sporting goals and personal achievements as important to him as financial gains, and are the funds that Germany’s champions can identify.
The former Arsenal player has the contract according to Kahn, so all that remains is for the 26-year-old to make a decision. The German player is unlikely to leave the Allianz Arena, but if he does then there will be plenty of clubs willing to fight for his signature.
Gnabry played 167 games for Bayern, and the Bavarian club hopes that this number will rise in the coming years.
