Bayern Munich’s misfit wide man Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he will reassess his futureat the Bundesliga champions when the January transfer window reopens, despite the fact that the German club have been insistent that the player will not be departing in the near future, as reported by the Daily Express.
There was significant interest in the Swiss international winger in the summer, with the suggestion being that the player would be available for a move.
He even attempted to push through a move during the summer months, but Bayern refused to budge, refusing to let the player depart.
This was the case despite the fact that Shaqiri played only 17 times in the Bundesliga for Bayern last season.
Shaqiri has struggled to establish a permanent first team berth with Pep Guardiola’s side since his move from Basel.
While he remains convinced that Bayern control his future, Liverpool, who made a bid for the player in the summer and were hopeful of pushing through a move, will take positives from the fact that the trickster is set to reconsider his future in the winter.
Shaqiri said: “I was looking for more first team action this season, everyone knows that.
“We had a sit down and discussed things with Bayern Munich. I received a clear message: I have to stay. I accepted that.
“We will have a look at things again in the winter. We will have to figure things out.
“I have a long-term deal at Bayern Munich so it is the club that will decide.
“If the club does not want to sell me or let me go, then that is positive news for me.”
