Shaqiri Drops Huge Hint at Bayern Munich Exit

Published Add your comment

Swiss starlet Xherdan Shaqiri has been linked with a move away from Bayern Munich for most of the summer with recent talk linking him with a switch to Anfield.

Bayern response

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer attempted to rule out any move for the 22-year-old despite the midfielder repeatedly expressing his desire to leave the club. 

Sammer said: "Xherdan is an important player for the future. There are no thoughts of him leaving."

Shaqiri response

Shaqiri chose to respond to this statement via his twitter feed and it appears he has no intention of staying at the club and waiting for his chance in the future.

Shaqiri took to the twittersphere Tuesday morning to say "I live in present... Not in future... ;-)

The youngster made 17 league appearances for Munich last season scoring six goals in the process as he helped his side to their second successive Bundesliga triumph.

World Cup success

Shaqiri also enjoyed a successful World Cup as he guided the Swiss side through the group stages before they lost in extra-time to eventual finalists Argentina.

The midfielder showed all his best attributes during the World Cup as he scored the first ever left footed hat-trick in a World Cup game, which will have only added to a few million to his value.

Roma interest

Shaqiri wants to leave the Allianz Arena in the hope of finding first team football with Liverpool looking like the favourites to secure his signature, but Italian side AS Roma are also rumoured to be in the hunt for the midfielder.

It is unclear where Shaqiri will be playing next season, but it is clear that whoever secures his signature will have some player on their hands, even if he does like to express his views via social networks.
