Where is central defender Niklas Süle going from FC Bayern? This question is currently one of the most discussed for the German soccer champions. Will the defensive edge extend its expiring contract with Munich or will Süle go to other European countries? Now a newly emerged photo of the Bayern star has caused a stir.
A picture was shared on social media showing Niklas Süle in the FC Barcelona jersey.
It is said to have been recorded in June 2015 at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, when FC Barcelona played the Champions League final there against Juventus Turin and won 3-1.
The photo in the Barca jersey is now seen by parts of the Bayern supporters as an indication of where the German international could be headed next summer. Namely to the Catalans in the Spanish LaLiga, for which the 26-year-old obviously has a special sympathy.
FC Barcelona has been a potential buyer for Süle for weeks. In addition to the sporting quality, the defender’s contractual starting position makes it particularly attractive for the clammy Blaugrana, who are forced to save and would be only too happy to realize a free transfer of a top central defender.
Until recently there had been no breakthrough in contract talks between FC Bayern and its regular player.
Süle’s stay at Bayern Munich is still not ruled out
According to the latest media reports, staying at Bayern is still an option for both the club and the player, but FC Barcelona is now considered a realistic alternative for the 43-time national player.
In addition to Barca, English clubs such as Chelsea FC or Newcastle United have recently been traded as potential Süle interested parties.
By the way: At the time the photo was taken, Süle was already a Bundesliga professional. As a 19-year-old at the time, he was under contract with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and was already a fixture in the Kraichgau until his first cruciate ligament tear in December 2014.
