In the past few days, the flirt between Niklas Süle, who will leave FC Bayern free of charge in the summer, and BVB has become more and more intense. According to consistent media reports, all details have now been clarified, and the national player’s move to Borussia Dortmund should be certain.
It was only on Sunday that Süle’s advisor, Volker Struth, confirmed on the “Sport1” program “Doppelpass” that his client had already found a new club.
Now reports the “Frankfurter Rundschau“that the move to Dortmund is a sure thing. The newspaper claims to have learned this “from a reliable source from the Frankfurt environment of the former youth player” of Eintracht. Shortly thereafter,”n-tv” and “image“This information is confirmed. BVB has not yet commented on request.
FC Bayern dropped the contract talks with the defender almost two weeks ago because a financial agreement seemed out of reach. Since Süle’s contract expires at the end of June, he can change clubs free of charge in the summer.
As “sky” meanwhile wants to know that he should sign a four-year contract in Dortmund.
BVB has to lift Süle’s monster salary
Süle had the feeling “not being valued enough”, player agent Struth justified the departure from Munich.
The decision was not just a matter of money. This also applied to the search for a new employer. A move to the nouveau riche sheikh club Newcastle United, which was also recently traded, was therefore out of the question. Struth made it clear that Sule’s goal was much more to win the Champions League again.
The financial side is still exciting: Süle is said to demand a salary of twelve to 15 million euros from his new club – a sum that Dortmund has rarely if ever been willing to pay a single player in the past.
Neuer is already mourning Süle at Bayern
The central defender, who is supposed to stabilize the shaky defense at BVB, switched from Hoffenheim to Munich in 2017, but was repeatedly thrown back there by injuries.
“There are certain limitations that we don’t want to ignore. We are not only responsible for the sporting, but also for the economic area,” said Bayern boss Oliver Kahn on Saturday about the Süle departure.
Captain Manuel Neuer, however, criticized: “It annoys us all that Niklas is going, we will miss him.”
