Schlotterbeck at Bayern not the first choice

Before the away game at BVB on Friday evening (from 8:30 p.m.), national player Nico Schlottbeck continues to make the headlines at SC Freiburg. And that despite the fact that he himself cannot play against Borussia Dortmund due to his corona quarantine. The reason is the ongoing transfer rumors about the central defender.

After recent outstanding performances for the Breisgauer, Schlotterbeck has been associated with top German and foreign clubs for weeks. Even the Spanish record champions Real Madrid are said to have targeted the 22-year-old and are closely monitoring the defender’s sporting development.

The speculation about FC Bayern’s interest is said to be less hot than previously assumed. As it is in the podcast “Bavaria insider” by “Bild” football boss Christian Falk, the Munich team should not be completely convinced of Nico Schlotterbeck’s personnel.

The 1.91 m giant made a powerful impression with strong performances in central defense in Freiburg and thus also earned his nomination for the German senior national team. However, he is obviously not flexible enough for Bayern’s squad planners when it comes to his playing position.

Schlotterbeck farewell to SC Freiburg in the summer likely

Rather, the podcast talks about the fact that the record champions in the defensive area are looking for a polyvalent type of player. Ideally, he should be able to hold both the central defender and the defensive midfield position. It’s about the “player type Javi Martínez,” it says.

On the other hand, it is likely that Schlotterbeck will leave SC Freiburg in the summer, a year before his contract expires. In the Bundesliga, Freiburg’s opponents on Friday, second-placed Borussia Dortmund, are also considered seriously interested.

The left-footed player feels ready for the next step in his career, having played 50 games for SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga and last season on loan for 1. FC Union Berlin.
