Shaqiri open to Liverpool & Man Utd offers, says agent

The out-of-favour Bayern Munich wideman is considering moving on from the European champions in search of regular first team football, putting Premier League clubs on alert

Bayern Munich wideman Xherdan Shaqiri would be open to a move to Liverpool or Manchester United should they make an offer, his agent has revealed.

The Switzerland international has found regular first team football hard to come by since joining the European champions in 2012 and is keen to seek out opportunities elsewhere.

His brother and representative, Erdin, told Swiss newspaper Blick: “Xherdan is 22. At that age he has to play regularly, which is not the case at the moment.

“We will wait til the summer. If then clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United or Inter will ask, we will surely listen.”

Liverpool have actively been on the prowl for another wide attacker, failing with January moves for Yehven Konoplyanka and Mohammed Salah, while David Moyes has not been shy about his desire to mould the United squad to his own taste.

Shaqiri faces tough competition from the likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Mario Gotze and Thomas Muller to break into Pep Guardiola’s starting XI and has previously talked of the temptation of moving on, as Goal exclusively revealed last Sunday.
