Kenan Yildiz leaves Bayern Munich. Munich’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has now given the reasons for the farewell.
Kenan Yildiz is considered a great talent in attacking midfield. However, the 17-year-old will not continue his career at Bayern Munich.
“Yildiz is a talented young player who we would have liked to have supported further on his way. However, we could not and did not want to meet his financial demands. That is why Yildiz will unfortunately leave us,” said sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic at “picture” the departure of the native of Regensburg. Yildiz’ contract with FC Bayern expired at the end of June.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, a move to Italy’s record champions Juventus Turin is becoming increasingly likely. The “old lady” is currently leading the race for the Turkish junior international. FC Barcelona, who were linked to Yildiz last winter, only have outsider chances.
Yildiz switched to Bayern Munich when he was a child
“Bild” confirms the report and reports that Juventus is “particularly hot” for Yildiz.
According to information from the portals “spox” and “goal”, Yildiz is not intended for the professionals at Juventus for the time being. The midfielder is supposed to support the junior team, but he could possibly also play for the U23 team in the third-rate Serie C.
Yildiz took his first steps in football in the youth department of Jahn Regensburg. Already at the age of seven he moved to Bayern in 2012. The two-footed playmaker feels most comfortable in the ten position. But the 17-year-old can also play on both wings, and his flexibility is a big plus.
In the past season, Yildiz played a total of 13 games for the Munich U19s and nine more for the U17s. The youngster has been a Turkish junior international since 2021.
