Xherdan Shaqiri: Bayern Munich will not sell Switzerland international

The 22-year-old has been linked with several top clubs around Europe in the wake of his performances in Brazil, which included grabbing all three goals in the 3-0 win over Honduras.

Prior to the World Cup, Shaqiri said that leaving the German champions for a Premier League club in England “was an option”.

Signed from Basle in 2012, he has started only 23 games in the Bundesliga and has rarely featured in the UEFA Champions League given the strong competition for places at the Allianz Arena.

However Matthias Sammer, Bayern’s sporting director, is adamant that the midfielder will play a big role in the club’s plans.

“Xherdan is an important player for the future,” the former Germany international told Kicker. “We are not going to sell."
