Bayern Munich chief Oliver Kahn gave a final verdict on defender Niklas Sule’s contract situation at Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has affirmed that defender Niklas Sule will not be part of the club after the end of this season.

As a matter of fact, the 26-year-old has been having problems with the Bundesliga champions over his future for the past six months. 

However, it seems that Bayern have given up on further negotiations. The club chief now sent a firm message that the centre-back will leave Bavaria in the summer.

Kahn said: “The negotiations with Niklas dragged on for a very long time. We made him an offer. He didn’t accept it. He wants to leave the club at the end of the season.”

“We have a certain responsibility when it comes to the offers. We have to stick to certain financial conditions. It’s normal in this business that you’ll not always reach an agreement.”

The Bayern CEO was also asked about a potential alternative but he urged that they have plenty of talented individuals to fill in the gap.

Kahn added: “We always look at all options. We have a lot of options when it comes to the position. Of course, we’re considering players. We have Lucas Hernández, an excellent centre-back in Upamecano, a talent in Nianzou. Pavard can also play there.”
