Matthias Sammer, Bayern’s sporting director, supposedly put an end to all the Xherdan Shaqiri rumors yesterday when he said: “Shaqiri is an important player for the future. We’re not even thinking about giving him away.”
But it looks like the player has got his heart set for a move away from the German club. The evidence being the tweet (below) which seems to be aimed directly at Sammer’s aforementioned statement.
Exciting for Liverpool as they were the only club who were strongly rumored with the Swiss star since the start of the transfer window.
I live in present… Not in future….;-)
