German wonderkid Sinan Kurt: I want to play for Bayern Munich

The highly-rated 18-year-old has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga champions for much of the summer and the player is keen to join Pep Guardiola’s side

Borussia Monchengladbach wonderkid Sinan Kurt remains convinced that he can secure a move to Bayern Munich before the end of the transfer window. .

The potential transfer of the 18-year-old has caused friction between the two sides, with Gladbach vice president Rainer Bonhof convinced he will remain with Die Fohlen for next season.

Despite being under contract until 2016, Kurt, who is currently playing for Borussia’s U23 side, is still seeking a move to the Bundesliga champions in this window.

Bonhof stated in a recent interview: “We will hold on to the boy.”

But speaking to reporters in Germany, Kurt made his views on the move very clear: “I’ve made my decision in favour of Bayern, and nothing will change. I stand by it!

“I’ve always been honest with [Director of Sport] Max Eberl about my intentions. Therefore I have nothing to feel guilty about.

“I am convinced that it will still happen. These are now, of course, crucial weeks for me. I want to get my way there. I would not do this if I did not believe that this will be the case.”

Kurt has been courted by teams such as Arsenal and Liverpool in the past, and his playing style has been compared with Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.
