Bayern Munich’s out of contract star Niklas Sule chooses his next club

Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule will leave at the end of this season for free after rejecting the Bavarians’ renewal offer.

The German centre-back is likely to trigger a transfer war in the summer, with his name being in the wishlist of top European clubs.

However, Sule’s agent Volker Struth has claimed that the new destination has already been chosen, but he refused to name the club.

Speaking to Sport Bild, Struth also revealed that Sule decided to halt the contract talks with Bayern after Christmas.

Struth said: “Niklas spent Christmas with his family. He then called me between the days and said to me: ‘I don’t want [to talk with Bayern] anymore’.

“It was a fundamental decision. Yes, it’s certain. Niklas made a decision a short time ago, and I would be surprised if he changes that decision again.

“The new club is set! Niklas Süle made a decision a short time ago. It’s about […] playing in the right place at the right time. Süle will earn good money anywhere.

“He will definitely also play in the Champions League and if you get a player like Süle, it will cost you a lot of money.”

Chelsea have identified Sule as a top defensive target, with the contracts of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta expiring this summer.

Bayern’s arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund have reportedly submitted an offer to the 26-year-old to sign him on a free transfer.

Die Borussen wants a replacement for Manuel Akanji, who has rejected a renewal offer, with his contract running out in 2023.

However, it remains to be seen whether Dortmund can meet Sule’s demands, as he is expecting a salary of €12-15m per season.
