Xherdan Shaqiri was rated as one of Europe’s hottest properties when he made the move to Bayern Munich two years ago, however a lack of playing time has faltered his development. Now 22, Shaqiri is looking for a move away from Bavaria unless his playing time dramatically increases.
The player himself acknowledges that he now has to make a decision about his future, and adds that England could be a possible destination if his situation doesn’t change.
Manchester United are the reported interested parties in the Swiss international.
“It’s clear that I cannot continue like this. If nothing changes, I will have to make some changes myself,” Shaqiri said.
“I want to play in the important games as well and not just in the Bundesliga. I don’t want to go through another year like this.”
“England would be an option. If I were to leave Bayern, it will be for a foreign club. But it will have to be a club challenging for the title.”
At just 22, Shaqiri would be well worth the gamble for any club willing to spend the £12million Bayern reportedly want. He still has plenty of developing to do and he needs regular playing time to improve.
